Wordless Book Crochet Pattern

12 Jan
Hi Everyone,
 
As promised I am starting to post some of my original patterns for you.  This is the first one I feel lead to post.  I figured since it’s 2012, that the 12th seemed like a good day to post an original pattern.  I will try my best to make it the 12th each month.
 
A few years back I began looking on the web for a crochet pattern for THE WORDLESS BOOK.  I thought that would be a fun thing to make.  When I couldn’t find one, I decided to try my hand at creating a pattern for one.  Below you will find my original design.
 
Around the time that I created this pattern, a friend had a website that had free patterns on it, and she let me post some of mine on there as well.  I will never forget receiving an email from a lady who thanked me for the pattern.  She said she was going on a mission trip, and these would be great to crochet and take with her to give to the children.  I was glad that I was able to share a pattern freely that would help out with a missions trip, and that she took the time to write to let me know.
