I love improvising my own knitting and crochet projects and prefer simple designs which are easy to make and easy to wear. Some of the following are detailed patterns and some are free "recipes", so you can improvise your own items. If there's a Ravelry button beneath the picture, the pattern is listed on the Ravelry database so you can link up your projects and see any others that have been added to the gallery.
