    This cotton scarf is crocheted in size 3 cotton crochet thread; while it looks intricate and detailed, it's actually an easy pattern to crochet, dispelling the myth that thread crochet is always difficult to do.

    • Filet Crochet Heart Trim - Made with love! This pretty trim features a repeating pattern of hearts that alternate. I love the filet crochet version; I also thought of another way to use the same chart. I designed a similar trim pattern where the heart design is cross stitched onto the trim (pictured at left). I think both variations turned out really pretty.

    • Beaded Crochet Necklace With Dichroic Glass Pendant - I've crocheted my sample necklaces using metallic embroidery floss, which is hefty enough to support both the seed beads and the small dichroic glass pendant which are an integral part of the necklace design. The embroidery floss takes a bit of skill and patience to work with, but the results are worth the effort! Check out a step by step beaded necklace tutorial here.
    • Layered Flower Necklace in Thread Crochet - This pretty necklace...MORE features two parts: the layered necklace band, and the matching flower. You can crochet and use either part separately.
    • Beaded Bracelets - These beaded bracelets are all crocheted with metallic embroidery floss. You can create your own new versions and colorways pretty easily by adapting the basic bracelet pattern.​
