Small Crochet Projects

For want of something crochety to post about today, I'm showing here the small items that I designed for our livelihood project over at Project Brave Kids. Here you see 3 different coasters and a glass cozy. The cozy is done in shell stitches, a simple design but I was pleased with it since its flexible enough to fit several sizes and shapes of glasses.
(I used Cannon threads and size 1.5mm hook for all the thread projects shown in this post.)


We sell the coasters in sets of six and the cozies in sets of 4.

Here's another glass cozy I just finished, its a simple lace design.

And, here are the flower chokers I sent out for my blogiversary contest. Aren't they cute...I love looking at them in different colors

  8. Thank you all so much for the compliments!
    I used Cannon threads for all of these projects (only one strand), and I used 1.5mm steel hook.

  12. Am interested in the glass cozies and coasters. Are the patterns free? If so, where can I get them? I live on an island where patterns are not available and there is little yarn but I do have some in stock and would like to use it up.
