I like to collect everything I need before starting the unit. One of the projects is making a crocheted rag rug. And since I prefer a FREE pattern over one I have to pay for, I went searching on the web. Below are some free pattern links, along with a few fun projects I found along the way (as you are supposed to also find a few fun projects to make).
I am also supposed to find a pattern for a doily, but all the ones I found looked REALLY complicated. Does anyone have a free online pattern for an EASY doily pattern (for a beginning beginer)?? I would also like to find a pattern for a really nice table cloth for a round table. Anyone have a nice one?
