Iris Crochet Edging

  A Free Crochet Pattern




Sometimes you have to join two worlds to make something great. I had an idea in my head and it just needed knit and crochet to make it happen. I wanted a cowl with a beautiful drape, and with a feminine lace to finish it off.   I also wanted something light for those cool late summer nights that happen here in Toronto because of the lake.

Light and with lots of drape meant this was going to be a knit cowl. I wanted the lace to come to points, and with knitting you can be pretty limited on coming to points, so that means the lace would have to be crochet.

Then I was in a conundrum. How would I promote my new pattern? Most sites want either knit or crochet not both at the same time. So I have decided to promote just the edging.




The cowl is a perfect pattern for someone who crochets and is wanting to try out knitting. There is no easier knitting pattern out there. Just cast on the amount of stitches you want and then knit until you reach 30 inches.

The crochet edging is a simple shell pattern. The only stitches used are sc, dc, ch, and picot. Lace doesn't have to be complicated to look beautiful. Another great part of this lace is that you can make it as long as you like. The body of the lace is a 2 row pattern repeat that ends with a big finish to really make it stand out.

Crochet Spring Welcome Sign

A Free Crochet Pattern


This is a pretty little design that can add some impact to your front door or entry way. I made a simple diagram for the filet part, and it is also written out. Basic stitches that you need to know to completely finish the project are: ch st, dc, sc, shell st, sl st, and fdc. 

You do not have to use embroidery floss for the flowers, left over size 10 crochet thread works great too. 
Also I left it out in the rain one day, and it re-dried misshaped, so it would be advisable to keep it dry once it is hardened.

Spring Welcome Sign Pattern



Yarn: size 10 crochet thread
Hook: steel hook 8
Notions: embroidery floss colors yellow, green, brown and light blue, embroidery needle, starch, and colorful ribbon. 
Notes:  A mesh consists of a dc, ch 2, dc. A block consists of 4 dc. The end of a mesh is the start of a block so if you make a mesh it would be dc, ch 2 sk 2 stitches and dc. A block would be the dc just made plus 2 dc in the ch spaces or 2 dcs, dc in next dc. (I'm pretty sure I just confused you more.)
