Pattern for Blooming Coral
Too cute. Again, still not sure the purpose, but... From the artist: This pattern will allow you to make your own formations of budding and blooming coral. There can be endless variations of height and number of buds as well as the size of the formation. Using a G hook and worsted weight yarn, this is a great project to take with you when you're out and about. It's a modular project, and each one of the buds can be made in minutes, so it's great to take out when you want something to work on while waiting for the bus, talking on the phone, etc. Even if you have just a little bit of time, you can still get that sense of completion (which I'm a total sucker for). You will need to know how to (or be willing to google!) chain, single crochet, double crochet, and slip stitch. The time required depends on the size of the coral formation you want to make, but the ones shown above can be comfortably made in an evening. The pattern is five pages long and has 12 color photographs, including some of the process of making the coral. The pattern will be emailed to you in pdf format within 24 hours of payment. I will send it to the email address associated with Etsy unless you specify otherwise.

A witty and cuddly display piece. This pattern provides a stitch-by-stitch guide to making a coral branch nearly identical to the one shown here. But more importantly, I try to describe the purpose of each one of those stitches so that you can become comfortable freeforming coral of your own design. The pattern is 4 pages long, and comes in pdf form with a labeled picture of the coral to make following the stitches easy. It's written out in (almost!) complete sentences so that it's easier to follow, with no deciphering of code. All you need to know to make this pattern is single crochet, increase, decrease, and chain. It's long, but very simple, and you can make this project in an evening if you are comfortable with crochet.
