Free Pattern - Crochet Snowflake Hotpad Potholder dishcloth (there is a link on site to Ravelry and a link there to another site for pattern). Great idea for little gifts for next Christmas. Even for teachers, maybe.
I like that it is made with larger gauge yarn. Amazing Elegant Shawl: free crochet pattern - I did this in cream.it turned out beautifully! I made mine a bit bigger than the pattern calls for, because I love large wraps.
