Welcome! I'm Sheila. I've crocheted since I was about 11, and I've been designing for over 20 years now. I started after my eyes lost the ability to jump quickly back and forth from pattern to work. I started doing my own thing and never looked back!
The vast majority of my work is in thread crochet, although I do enjoy my yarns too. I love to design 3D crocheted objects that are accented by my jewelrymaking hobby, too. I also enjoy creating accessories and winter warming objects like afghans, unique scarves, etc.
My patterns are sold to support the needs of my Miniature Schnauzer rescue dogs. We operate as Sheila's Schnauzies, a nonprofit organization and currently have four furkids here. We all appreciate your support!
If you'd like to see my crochet theme artwork printed on things like t-shirts and tote bags, stop by http://www.cafepress.com/Schnauzies.
I do offer quite an extensive selection of free patterns at http://www..hubpages.com/hub/sheilaschnauzies. There you'll find a complete index of my free patterns.
Thanks for coming by! Happy Crocheting,
Here is a square motif that is super-easy to crochet. You can make it in thread or yarn, in any size to suit your purpose. It makes an adorable dishcloth!
Pictured is a five foot afghan I made entirely of Peaches n' Cream scrap yarn. It is the warmest afghan I own, and it's completely machine washable and dryable!
If you love the off-balance and unusual angles, this pattern is for you! The squares in the design change position as the square grows, which is so much fun to see!
The square is done in what I call "Prong Stitch Single Crochet." It's just a variation of where your hook is placed.
I hope you have a lot of fun with it!
