"Whatever you can do or dream, you can begin it.
Boldness has genius, power and magic in it."
~~ Van Goethe ~~


But I rejoiced in the Lord greatly, that now at last you have revived your concern for me; indeed, you were concerned before, but you lacked opportunity. Not that I speak from want; for I have learned to be content in whatever circumstances I am. I know how to get along with humble means, and I also know how to live in prosperity; in any and every circumstance I have learned the secret of being filled and going hungry, both of having abundance and suffering need. I can do all things through Him who strenghtens me.

Philippians 4:10-13

And my God shall supply all your needs according to His riches in glory in Christ Jesus.

Philippians 4:19


How blessed is the man who does not walk in the counsel of the wicked, nor stand in the path of sinners, nor sit in the seat of scoffers! But his delight is in the law of the Lord, and in His law he meditates day and night. And he will be like a tree firmly planted by streams of water, which yields its fruit in its season, and its leaf does not wither; and in whatever he does, he prospers.

Psalm 1:1-3

The word is a lamp to my feet, and a light to my path. I have sworn, and I will confirm it, that I will keep Thy righteous ordinances, I am exceedingly afflicted; revive me, O Lord, according to Thy word.

Psalm 119:105-107

RE: Guestbook Comment

Thank you for sharing your patterns with us.

RE: Guestbook Comment

God truly works miracles even when we least expect it. I crochet and knot when I am down. My sister who I love with all my heart has had a stroke and the recovery has been rough. I was looking for new patterns and this website came up, little did I know that it was for my heart more than my hands. Thank you so much for your faith and standing with Christ through this website. It is rare in these end times to find someone willing to openly confess Christ and help others through his word and prayers. God has truly blessed me today by leading me to this site. Lynn Sanders

RE: Post on the Crochetnmore Fan Page

I am looking for a pattern for a scarf/shawl with cuffs (not sleeves) to keep a senior warm across the shoulders but not have trailing edges to be a hazard in the kitchen. Ideas anyone?

Norene Parmeter Harris


These are adorable. However, I haven't been able to locate a pattern like this.
I will keep an eye out on future searches.

Stacy Justchilling
I just bought my first skein of bulky yarn and ready to make a scarf, however, I have been finding patterns that require 2 kinds of yarns or the pattern is too hard. Do you have a scarf pattern for a beginner crocheter using one type of yarn?


See what you think about this pattern:
You can do the fringe in the same yarn or leave it off.

Lisa, May u be blessed by the truth of God's Word.

Also I have been searching for instructions on how to make booties and beanies to enlarge from newborn size to child size. I would appreciate any info. U may have on this. I thank you very sincerely for all ur help. I have crocheted so to speak for yrs. but it was my own made up stitch. U have taught me how to read pattern, correctly done stitches and most importantly how to count stitches and rows.
Thank you so much.
Deanna Shouppe

I'm so glad the information I have on my site has helped you learn
more about the art of crochet.

As for enlarging patterns...every pattern is different. Some patterns
have various sizes listed. Do you have a specific pattern in mind?

RE: How to Crochet - Table Runner Tutorial



Can I use this pattern to crochet place mats?


Yes you can... the pattern is crocheted from one end to the other... just stop when you get the length you want. If you want it larger you can add a border.

Dawn Michele Houston

<< reply >>

For Row 8 you chain 3, then turn the work.
(Skip one stitch, work a half double crochet in the next stitch, chain 1) now repeat the instructions in parentheses around to the last stitch. Join with a slip stitch in the second chain of the beginning chain 3 (skipping that last stitch).

"Laughter is an instant vacation." - Milton Berle
~ ~ ~ ~ ~


A young woman, pursuing a graduate degree in art history, was going to Italy to study
the country's greatest works of art.

Since there was no one to look after her grandmother while she was away, she took the old lady with her.

At the Sistine Chapel in the Vatican, she pointed to the painting on the ceiling. "Grandma, it took Michelangelo a full four years to get that ceiling painted."

"Oh my, "the grandmother says. "He and I must have the same landlord."


If you've ever worked for a boss who reacts before getting the facts and thinking things through, you will love this!

Arcelor-Mittal Steel Company, feeling it was time for a shakeup, hired a new CEO. As a priority, this new boss was determined to rid the company of all slackers. On a tour of the facilities, the CEO noticed a guy leaning against a wall. The room was full of workers and he wanted to let them know that he meant business. He asked the guy, "How much money do you make a week?"

A little surprised, the young man looked at him and said, "I make $400 a week. Why?"

The CEO said, "Wait right here." He walked back to his office, came back in two minutes, and handed the guy $1,600 in cash and said, "Here's four weeks' pay. Now GET OUT and don't come back.”

Feeling pretty good about himself, the CEO looked around the room and asked, "Does anyone want to tell me what that goof ball did here?"

From across the room a voice said, "Pizza delivery guy, from Domino's."

I was accompanying my eight-year-old daughter who was selling cookies door-to-door for the
Girl Scouts. After visiting several homes, she commented on the different styles of doorbells:
some buzzed, some rang, some warbled.

We made a game of guessing what the next bell would sound like.

At the precise moment she touched the doorbell at one house, the church tower began to chime.
She wheeled around with a look of amazement on her face. "Now that's a doorbell!"

The man passed out in a dead faint as he came out of his front door onto the porch. Someone called 911.

When the paramedics arrived, they helped him regain consciousness and asked if he knew what caused him to faint.

"It was enough to make anybody faint," he said. "My son asked me for the keys to the garage, and instead of driving the car out, he came out with the lawn mower!"

My wife is a teacher; it's really weird to live with a teacher. I'd be on the phone, doodling on a piece of paper, leave the house, come back in two hours and that same piece of paper is now on the refrigerator with the words "Good work!" and a big smiley face on it.

The telephone solicitor selling basement waterproofing must have thought she'd died and gone to heaven when she reached my very polite and patient son on the phone.

At the end of her long sales pitch, she asked, "Do you mind if we send out someone to give you an estimate?"

"Not at all," my son said.

"When would be a good time?" she asked.

My son answered, "Just as soon as I dig a basement."


An exasperated mother, whose son was always getting into mischief, finally asked him, "How do you expect to get into heaven?"

The boy thought it over and said, "Well, I'll just run in and out and in and out and keep slamming the door until St. Peter says, 'For heaven's sake, Jimmy, come in or stay out!'"


A guy took his girlfriend to her first football game.

Afterward he asked her how she liked the game.

"I liked it, but I couldn't understand why they were killing each other for 25 cents," she said.

"What do you mean?" he asked.

"Well, everyone kept yelling, 'Get the quarter back!'"


To celebrate his 40th birthday, my boss who is battling middle- age spread, bought a new
convertible sports car. As a finishing touch, he put on a vanity plate with the inscription
"18 Again."

The wind was let out of his sails, however, when a salesman entered our office the following
week. "Hey," he called out, "who owns the car with the plate "I ate again?"


The doorbell rang and the lady of the house discovered a workman, complete with tool chest, on the front porch.

"Madam," he announced, "I'm the piano tuner."

The lady exclaimed, "Why, I didn't send for a piano tuner."

The man replied, "I know you didn't, but your neighbors did.”

During his sermon, our pastor quoted Matthew 19:19, "Love your neighbor as yourself." To emphasize the point, he asked three times, with increasing intensity: "Who is my neighbor? Who is my neighbor? Who is my neighbor?!"

Each time he asked, a young boy behind us answered (mimicking the pastor's intensity, but not quite as loud): "Mister Rogers! Mister Rogers! Mister Rogers!"

A man feared his wife wasn't hearing as well as she used to and he thought she might need a hearing aid. Not quite sure how to approach her on the subject, he called the family doctor to discuss the problem.

The Doctor told him there is a simple informal test the husband could perform to give the doctor a better idea about her hearing loss. Here's what you do," said the Doctor, "stand about 40 feet away from her and say something in a normal conversational speaking tone see if she hears you. If not, go to 30 feet, then 20 feet, and so on until you get a response."

That evening, the wife is in the kitchen cooking dinner, and he was in the lounge. He says to himself, "I'm about 40 feet away, let's see what happens." Then in a normal tone he asks, 'Honey, what's for dinner?" No response. So the husband moves closer to the kitchen, about 30 feet from his wife and repeats, "Honey, what's for dinner?" Still no response. Next he moves into the dining room where he is about 20 feet from his wife and asks, "Honey, what's for dinner?" Again he gets no response. So, he walks up to the kitchen door, about 10 feet away. "Honey, what's for dinner?" Again there is no response.

So he walks right up behind her. "Honey, what's for dinner?" Then he suddenly hears her say, “Ralph!, for the FIFTH time, - it's CHICKEN!"
