listing the new patterns and information on Serendipity.
SERENDIPITY CROCHET was originally designed as an easy
way to keep my
collected crochet information organized. It seems to have expanded substantially.
Also on the site are many tips and techniques,
both from professional crocheters and store owners, and myself.
I started with two Queen-size Granny Square afghans, and I was hooked on the craft.
So I call myself Crochetman.
I crochet for fun. After granny squares I progressed to wreathes
before settling down to sweaters, slippers, hats, mitts, and baby jackets.
Most of the sweaters, toques and mittens go to charity and the preemie hats
and sweaters of course go to the hospitals. Because the sweaters for the
Hospital Preemie Wards are made to the Nurses requirements,
a separate page of information about the Preemie is included here.
We also make Hats, Mittens, and Scarves for Inner City Infant

Serendipity means good fortune or luck and many of these
and techniques are based on that idea. Just chain until its wide enough,
work until its long enough
and then stop. Come to think of it, all patterns are like that.
Its just that someone else decided how long and how wide.
For the beginner or novice crocheter, I strongly recommend you
a visit to a good internet friend, Sandie, at Crochet Cabana .
Her "How To Crochet" Tutorials are better than anything I've seen in print.
She also has excellent Tutorials on Broomstick Lace and Afghan Stitch.
