        I learned to crochet when I was a child. My aunt taught me how to make granny squares. I crocheted everything I could imagine. My best project was a crocheted turtle. Then as an adult, another aunt taught me to knit. I’ve been knitting for years and love it. But your crochet has inspired me to crochet again (the fabric and crochet quilt). I have once again fallen in love with crochet. Thank you so much for your inspiration! I would love to have the ACTUAL pattern your mother-in-law used. I am almost finished making one, ready to assemble with 36 squares. But I’m ready to make another one with the actual pattern.


      • Janette says:

        Hi Barbara, thanks for stopping by. If you go to the quilt post and check the comments the people who supply the pattern have provided a link to it on their website (quite a number of times). Good luck! Jx

      Wonderful and useful patterns and very generous of you to share them. I liked all of them but particularly liked the flower pillow and the cheeky monkey hat. I plan to make the flower pillow and when I have finished I will post a photo. Also the jar pin cushion topper is quite ingenious. I thought I knew all there was to know about pincushions but never thought of this excellent idea! It is true, one is never too old to learn. LOL. I recently showcased a variety of pin cushion ideas on my blog. May I direct people from my web page to “the green dragonfly” to view your wonderful patterns?
      I am about sustainable living and that very much includes making and repairing things by hand.


    • Veronica E Freimuth says:

      I love the beautiful patterns that were sent to me. My love one in back home and I can try to work on some new projects. Thank you for sharing😶.

    hi Janette, your crochet tutorials are just fantastic! also love your kids craft ideas, your children must have a ball at home. Just wondering about the cotton yarn that you use for your crochet, do you know if it is available through the internet at all? it looks really lovely and not fuzzy like the cotton yarn that i have, the colours are brilliant. Love the dianthus top that you made, the colours look amazing. thanks so much for sharing.



  2. Linda Ellis says:

    Wow, what an amazing website… Your creations are amazing and inspiring. My mom taught me to crochet at an early age, but of course, I didn’t pay attention. Now that I’m older and with a 3 1/2 daughter, have started to get back to it. I consider my self a beginner since, I didn’t pay attention way back when… I will try to do the hair ties for my daughter. Being a fan of dragon flies, I love the name of your website…


  3. Tash says:

    Such cute crochet patterns!! I am new to crochet, I only really learnt over this past month and I am just addicted! You’re tutorials have provided fuel to my fire! The girls dress with the crochet yoke is especially gorgeous!!!!


  4. Triona wallace says:

    Just found your Blog and just have to say it is amazing 🙂 your patterns are truly beautiful and even tho I had a million other things on my to-do list I sat down and made one of your hats last night! Thank you so much ❤


  5. Benita says:

    I would like to crochet cute slippers but for some or other reason i struggle to find a pattern that works well enough. something with a sole. Do you think you can take some time and help me with a pattern?


  6. Audrey Irvine says:

    Thank you for sharing your wonderful creative spirit. I love your crochet and all the beauty you bring into your life. I am working on a charity project and have made your Princess Poppy with the granny cardigan. It came out wonderfully. Blessings


  7. pattythetree says:

    Love your blog! Your patterns are really nice! I can’t wait to try the man hat and the flower pillow! Thanks for all of your work here! Love from North Carolina!


  8. Kerri Manwell says:

    Thanks for sharing all these great ideas. I have 2 daughters with long hair that I can’t wait to make some of the hair tyes for.

    Thanks again,



  9. Mariah says:

    I came across your blog when I saw someone share your Easter bunnies on Facebook. Your patterns are so pretty 🙂 I definitely plan on trying some of them. I noticed above one of the pictures you said people can have the patterns for their personal use. Does that mean you prefer people not sell what they make from your patterns?


  10. Jenne Schendel says:

    I came across your blog while searching for doily patterns for my pinterest page. I really love it! And thank you for being so willing to share patterns–I really appreciate it & you have some wonderful ones. Blogs like yours inspire me to one day have my own and share patterns, ideas, etc. THANK YOU!!


  11. Sally says:

    You have some pretty, fun and very useful patterns. I love to make things for the children I know. It is great of you to share your patterns!


  12. Fabyta says:

    Hi! I have a Facebook page with a lot of followers and I’d like to share your patterns on it, showing the link to your page. Is that possible? Thank you in advance


  13. Janine says:

    Hi Janette
    You have some lovely things on this site. I was wondering if I may sell anything I make. I will of course put labels crediting your patterns if I sell through any of our various markets around here, or link through if I sell through e-bay, Gumtree or maybe the Etsy shop I am trying to set up (trying being the operative word – having problems). I live in Australia in a little rural area. I am really looking forward to making the Rosy Posy Tea Cozy, Cheeky Monkey Hat and the Caity cat among others. So cute. Different too. Just what people look for. I don’t have a website of my own – wouldn’t know how to set one up


  14. Lindy says:

    Love them all! Have just completed a rainbow scarf and starting on another. have completed two rainbow mitts for my two little girls (from your patterns!). They love them very much! my little daughter said oooh mummy rainbow! Thank you very much!


  15. Suzanne Elkin says:

    Oh my goodness! Happened upon your cite yesterday. I saw your adorable crochet cat and from there, started a list of everything I would need for several of your lovely items. Well, here I am tonight, surrounded by all this beautiful yarn. But too excited and don’t know which one to begin with! Thank you for the ideas for so many holiday gifts. I love all your colorful projects and your blog.


  16. denise says:

    I. Thought I seen a knit or crochet bear rug or blanket on your website. Before. Do you know how I could get a pattern for it? Please reply back I really want to make it for my son. Thankyou


  17. Janice Maiolatesi says:

    Just discovered your site and was amazed at all the things you offer. It is so sweet of you to offer your patterns for free as there are some people would not be able to make your wonderful items if they had to pay for each item, it leaves them with money to buy the yarn needed to make the items. It also encourges others to try more of your items. I am so glad I found you & will be following you. God bless.


  18. Gerba says:

    Vielen lieben Dank für die vielen tollen Anleitungen und für deine Mühe.
    Frohe Weihnachten und ein gutes “Neues Jahr” aus Deutschland.


  19. Alicia says:

    I just wanted to say that I am absolutely in love with your site! I do, however, wish you had some dragonfly patterns on here! Lol. But in all seriousness, you are amazing an very talented. Also, you have adorable children that are amazing little models. I aspire to, one day, be half as good as you are with crocheting.


  20. amray767 says:

    Hi There, I love your work! I started a Crochet Free Patterns Directory! Come on over and add your free patterns links, if you have any you want to share or just take a look at others work! You only need to add your link so you will get all the credit! Just click on the submit pattern button on my directory site! Its in the beginning stages, but I know I can get it going with others contributing their patterns. I have been crocheting for years now and I have my other site Crochet Jewel which has many free patterns, but I wanted to start a directory for others to share on! Thanks

    Hi Janette,
    I’ve missed following along with your latest projects and crafts – I’m hoping all is well with you and yours. You’re a beautiful talented lady who has inspired me many times.
    Take care,


  23. Habibah Alma says:


    I love this website and all the pretty things you make, your a real inspiration! Iv always just crocheted free hand really ( as my mom taught me) id like to learn to follow patterns better, any tips?

    I’m a mom of 4 expecting my fifth but crochet funnily enough keeps me sane. It’s really my ‘me time’ I feel deeply relaxed when I do it. I look forward to trying some of your lovely hair bands for my daughter. Thankyou for blogging, it’s a joy to see a mum who has similar multi interests who is doing something fun with her time and enjoying as she goes. I want to involve crafts and creativity more into my life as it brings me great joy.
