Crochet Hooks by mk.carrol on Flickr. Used under Creative Commons licence.

Although we're called knitonthenet, did you know that we also have lots of great crochet patterns in our pattern archive for you to make? From the simplest beginner's scarf to gorgeous earrings and a roomy market bag, there are projects for everyone. Here are just a few examples.

Crochet Cot Blanket by Aruba Blue, image copyright

If you or somebody you know is expecting a baby, a handmade cot blanket is a lovely and useful keepsake. Instead of knitting one, why not crochet this great blanket by Aruba Blue? Her original blanket, from knitonthenet Issue 3 was made in blues, but you can easily vary the colours to match the new addition, or use a range of rainbow colours to cover all eventualities.

Market bags are always useful, so why not make one! Carol Ventura's pattern for her Market Bag from Issue 7 gives enough room for lots of shopping and is a great way to try out a new techniqe. Carol has also written an article about the technique used, tapestry crochet in the same issue.

Thinking forward to the hotter weather, we've a really nice pattern for a pair of beach sandals by Aruba Blue from Issue 6. Using a slipper sole, the top of the sandal is crocheted in hemp yarn and tied Gladiator-style with a length of ribbon.

We'd love to hear about any of the items that you've made from our patterns, and see some pictures too. Drop me a line at ingrid[at] with your pictures or add them to our Flickr pool, share them with the Ravelry group or post them on our Facebook page.
