    Love! I can barely read patterns, so I often decipher them incorrectly anyway, and end up making my own thang!

    I so agree. And can we all also agree not to just immediately say “Pattern, please!” after each and every photo? How about a compliment. A nod to the craftsmanship or beauty or just a cheer of victory for a finished project. Something other than a demand. “Please” does not make it any nicer.

    I don’t understand why anyone would want restrictions. I love seeing all the creativity with The Crochet Crowd. I admit, I have very little creativity, which makes me appreciate the community all the more. Mikey posted awhile back about showing appreciation more and although not everyone got it, I did see members showing appreciation more. I feel a little lost with my ability to create on my own but there is so much support in the community…we are family!

    i agree – sometimes i will post the pattern with my finished project – to give credit to the designer or even the youtube video I followed –
    but that is a choice we are free to make – especially when we stray from the original pattern –
    what I would like to see – is for people to be nicer in the way they ask for a pattern –
    just posting – pattern?? – in the comments just seems rude to me –

    Crochet On ! ;o)

    I totally agree! Most of the time, I use a pattern as a starting point and adapt or embellish as I go along. At the end of a project, even I’m not sure how I got there, so there’s no way I could provide step-by-step instructions for someone else… LOL
