I am trying something different. On the 17th of each month I will post a question for you. I am hoping this will generate some interest and help promote our craft. Please answer by clicking on the comment link at the bottom of this post. Thanks a bunch! (Feel free to grab the Question 17 button for your blog.)

I think my favourite is the Crochet Cat (Amineko). The pattern is found here http://www5a.biglobe.ne.jp/~mite/diagram/index.html . I have only made the head. But, since I have already posted on this pattern, I think I should let you know about another free pattern I like.

Broad Street Mittens found pn Knitty.com here: http://www.knitty.com/ISSUEfall02/PATTbroadstreet.html . No, I haven't made these mittens yet. They are on my "To Do" list.

Definitely the Kitty Pi at wendyknits.com. For sure my favorite free online pattern ever! :)

hey ruth! this is a great question. i think my favorite freebies are shedir (at www.knitty.com, in the special breast cancer awareness pdf issue) and jaywalkers (www.magknits.com) - both are extremely well designed and not only look gorgeous, but are functionally superb. if you haven't tried them, definitely give 'em a go! ~gabriella :)

That's the one I make the most of. Helps me finish up balls of thread and they are lovely.

My favorite: Clapotis from knitty.com.

I'm on my fourth Clapotis; some of my yarn choices more successful than others. For instance, never again with Lorna's Laces "Lion & Lamb" - beautiful but it fuzzes and looses its surface sheen almost immediately. And never again with mohair or anything with mohair in it = shedding and itching. Right now I'm using Brooks Farms' "Mas Acero" which is perfect.
