New Free Crochet Pattern Coming Soon

New Free Crochet Pattern Coming Soon


I have been working on a brand new free crochet pattern for Tampa Bay Crochet.  I was going to post a few teaser pictures but I thought if everyone saw the picture it would be easy to guess what the pattern would be.

I will say that the new pattern is a glove pattern.  However, it isn't just any crochet glove pattern :)

I hope to have this pattern finished and posted by the end of the week.

Free Crochet Pattern: Owl iPhone or iPod Cozy

Free Crochet Pattern:  Owl iPhone Cozy


As I previously posted, for a limited time I am offering my owl iPhone cozy for free in celebration of the release of the iPhone 5s and 5c.

I ordered my iPhone a few weeks ago and it is supposed to arrive Oct 14th.  Last night I crocheted an owl iPhone cozy for myself with some bright colored yarns.  I think it turned out pretty cute so I had to share it.

Don't forget to download your free pattern while it lasts.
