Hi Jennifer,I saw and saved your One Round hearts, eggs and stars to try. I'm not the best crocheter, but I try. When I tried the eggs and tiny stars your instructions baffled me. There's no indication in them as to which chain stitch to start in once the join is made with the slip stitch. Also, I had some extra Paton's Grace on hand and thought I'd try using it, but the 5 mm hook seemed so huge for that particular yarn. I switched to a smaller hook, still had a problem..especially with the very first stitch being a treble. I've got arthritis in my fingers...can you help me with some suggestions and more information? Thank you. If you'd like to email me, my AOL email is JRooney871@aol.com Thanks.
Sure no problem, I'll send you an email! :-)
Jennifer, just think of how many lives you have touched. Sharing your patterns, pictures, teaching,and time, and I can pay it forward. I know I can do these patterns, send it to someone who will feel comforted. I can give more often, and just keep knittin' and a givin. I really believe it makes a differance to add love & good wishes into knitting, or any craft. And somewhere a preemie will be sporting a funny hat, and everyone who looks at that baby will smile.
Thank you so much for your sweet comment, you really made my day! :-) I completely agree with you too...there is no feeling like wrapping those you love and those in need in handmade warmth and love. It's like a hug that keeps on hugging! Keep knitting...you are changing the world one stitch at a time!
Thanks for the easy to understand patterns. I'm starting the Fiona scarf for my teenage daughter and can't wait to see the finished product. I always look forward to seeing a new email from you. So, keep those patterns coming...I'll be waiting! Bobbiebobbicaselle@yadtel.net
Will do! Thanks for your kind comment!!
JenniferI am new to crocheting.I like dishcloth pattern. Can I use the same pattern for an afghan?Thank you
You sure can! Just keep adding rounds until you get the size that you need for your afghan.
JenniferSometimes people come into your lives in person to make them happier. You come into our homes with your lovely site. It seems like you are a friend. I will put you on my favorites list today. This is the best site I have seen. It shows that you put a lot of time and effort into your work. Your ideas are wonderful. I will pass on your site to my friends. I love all of your work,and really like your idea of even making a holder for your stitch markers. You are one bright ray of sunshine. Thanks!Kay
Oh my gosh...thank you for your unbelievable kind comment! I am so glad you are enjoying the site, hugs to you dear stitcher!
When I try to print out the free pattern for Butternut squash neckwarmer I get a almost blank page with Twitter tweet box printed left hand corner. Then on the right a small box that says sign in and tweet.Whats going on?
Hmmm, not sure, but you can easily print only the content you want by highlighting on the needed text (and none of the stuff you don't need). Select "copy" with your right mouse button, then paste only what you want to a word document. That way you can print it on your own terms and ever save it for later.
Hi Jennifer - Those crochet chain bows are TOO CUTE. Thanks for posting such a quick, easy idea that will make some of my gifts more personal. I love your blog and am always happy when it arrives in my inbox -
Wow thanks! So glad you like the bows too!
Hi Jennifer -Came across your blog by accident while looking for some crochet patterns that I could actually read!! Learned to crochet as a child from my grandmother, and have never been able to follow a pattern, but have been feeling the NEED to play with yarn lately. Your directions are clear and easy to follow. Thank you!!
Yay! So glad you are enjoying the patterns and that you have picked up your hook again. Crocheting and knitting is my happy place :) Can't live without it!!!
I'd yarn more if there wasn't all that fabric and quilting in the world! LOL. Starting your Butternut Neckwarmer this afternoon while we start our annual "A Christmas Carol" listen. Can't wait for snuggle and create time with my daughter!Have a blessed holiday!
Sounds like the perfect day, enjoy!!

Hi Jennifer,I love your patterns and you take gorgeous photographs as well. I am just curious why you do not allow selling items made from your patterns? I see some bloggers do this and others allow it if credit and a link to the pattern are listed with the item. I am not criticizing...just wondering...thanks!
Thanks for your kind comments and question. I recently updated my copyright information and it's a personal choice that I made after a great deal of thought. I appreciate your thoughtful question and understanding...thanks again! :)
Oh my goodness, I just happened on this web site while looking for patterns for scarfs. Your patterns are so creative and your generosity in sharing them is remarkable. Thank you so much for taking time out of your days to post all this information. I have bookmarked your site and you can be sure I will be visiting it often. Once again, THANK YOU!Pam
Oh my goodness! You are so sweet...thank you for your really nice comment, I'm so glad you stopped by! :)
Hi Jennifer, where do I find the crochet patterns?? I want to do the pavement infinity scarf, thanks. firstname.lastname@example.org
Hi Andrea!If you scroll to the top of this page, the Pavement Scarf and other free crochet patterns are in the "Free Crochet Patterns" tab. Happy crocheting to you!
Thank you so much for Cloudy Sky Mobius. I made one for myself and my daughter liked it so much she requested one for herself.I appreciate your time and effort that made it so easy for me.
Awesome! I'm tickled that you and your daughter enjoyed it! Thanks too for your kind comment!
Hi Jennifer! I was wondering if you might be interested in joining a Pinterest link-sharing group I'm starting, specifically for crochet and knitting bloggers. It would be a way to get to know and support like-minded folks. Let me know if you'd like more info!
I would love to! Let me know what I need to do to join. :)
Hi Can i have the permission to sell the the finished product . There is a fundraising event in my son's preschool where i am going to sell Thank you
Hi Jennifer;I just stumbled up your web-site Fibre Flux-Adventures in stitching, and WOW this is just an extremly wonderful website, and there are lots to see and challing items to chose from. My first project is Flower Patch Button Wrap. Can hardly wait to start this project-something different for a change. I was wndering, as there is nothing on the pattern/website as to wear I caan locate the 2 buttns you have chosen. Are they hand made/or do you buy them somewhere? Would really like to know? HELP!!!!!
Thank you and welcome! So glad you stopped by...I got the buttons a few years ago at a fabric store, I loved them so much, I bought every single one they had! I have since thrown away the cards, I know they are plastic and Made in Italy, if that helps...happy crocheting!!!

Thank you for all your lovely patterns! I was wondering - could I make products from your patterns and use them to make money for Operation Christmas Child?
I WOULD REALLY LIKE THE PATTERN FOR THE LITTLE HERAT THAT IS YOUR SIGNITURETHANK YOU, CAROLYN
Hi Carolyn,Here you go!http://fiberflux.blogspot.com/2012/01/tinyone-round-hearts-by-jennifer.html
Morning - I have nominated you for the Super Sweet Blog Award. I love your blog, the photos and the creations. Thank you.
Well thank you so much! How kind! :)
Hi Jennifer,I just discovered your blog through Pinterest and I'm smitten. Love the beautiful things you make and want to thank you for sharing your talent with the rest of us. I crochet a bit, nothing too big, as my attention span is quite short. I want to make some of your darling travel blossoms, they are so cute. Plus I think I can handle that size project. I want to make a Queen Anne's Lace crochet scarf someday.Best Wishes and Happy Stitching,GrannyB
Thank you so much! I like crocheting small things too! The scarf you are talking about sounds lovely. :)Happy crocheting!

Hi Jennifer, I too am new to your site, and I have a question, the Crochet Hooks you use, can you tell me where you purchase them, I am in Australia, and have never seen anything like that, as an elderly person,the Steel Hooks are not good for my hands, and those you use look so good and easy to handle.Regards, Barbara
Hi Barbara! The hooks I use mostly are called Clover Soft Touch. They are so comfortable, even when I work on something for a long time. I got some of mine from amazon.com for a great price and some of them from knitpicks.com too. I hope that helps...I definitely recommend them!Happy crocheting!
Hi Jennifer, a friend ask me to check out your site because she had seen your pattern for Travel Blooms and wanted to know if I could make some for her luggage. What a great site. I am so excited to find this site and to try some of your patterns. I used to crochet many years ago, but have just recently picked it back up. Love your tutorials and explanations. I had forgotten a lot and needed some instructions to help me along, your site is perfect for my needs.
So glad you stopped by! How wonderful to crocheting again! Thanks for your kind comment too! :)
Jennifer,I have been trying to replicate the idea of a scarf that my sister has, as I cannot find a pattern for it for myself. I was wondering I you had a pattern that is similar or could direct me in the basics of it if I were to send you a photo? I am a knitter, just think that I am missing something in the thought process of its construction.
Sure! You could message me on Facebook or Twitter, the links are up at the top of this page on the left side. :)
Glad to join your blog. I am a fan of your designs. I've made your Butternut Squash Neckwarmer, and recently completed your Arugula Scarf (and loved this simple but effective pattern for a decorative scarf). I then realized they were related when I added some other items to my Ravelry favorites and they were yours. Thank you for offering such interesting, well-written patterns that are easy to make and look terrific. Roberta (Whippetcat on Ravelry).
Thank you for your kind comment! What a lovely compliment, you just made my day! So glad you are enjoying the patterns and site too, happy crocheting to you! :)
do you have patterns for hats of all sizes? something simple that is easy and not time consuming but is either masculine or feminine? I know the basics and would like to make hats for cancer patients at the local hospitals. My father and both of his parents my grandparents have had cancer which is why I would like to make hats. My father was always cold while going thru the chemo treatments and I thought a hat would be a nice gesture. thank you no I am not a member but my email is email@example.com
What a wonderful thing you are doing, this is a great hat for an adult:http://fiberflux.blogspot.com/2012/10/free-knitting-patternmatilda-hat.html
JenniferI am really excited to find your blog!I am just starting out in crochet and rekindling my knitting skills with a granddaughter on the way in February. Are your crochet patterns in UK or US terms? I am easily confused!Also on the Baby in Bloom baby knitted hats it says to use worsted weight yarn. I have done a quick search and in UK it seems equivalent to double knitting or aran wool and I gather it falls somewhere in between. Do you have any advice on this please?
Hi there! Everything is in US terms, as far as yarn substitutions, I would definitely work up a small swatch to see if the gauge is similar.Congratulations too by the way!! :)
Hi Jennifer: I love your blog...I am a crocheter and love making the large granny square blankets. I love your pattern for the Berry Season Blanket. I have a question, though, when it comes to making these types of blankets...how do you keep it from being crooked? I've made a few before and sometimes the center squares end up being a bit crooked, and then sometimes it's totally straight. Do you have any tips?Thanks so much!Kristink2reader(at)gmail(dot)com
Hi Kristin!Not really sure about it being crooked, perhaps the tension? Sometimes if my tension changes it makes my stitches a little crooked. Also make sure there is always a chain 1 between each cluster on a granny square, if it is missing it can squeeze the cluster together which could cause crookedness.Hope that helps!!
Hi Jennifer, I found your blog recently. I really love your work...simple to make, yet looks so sophisticated! I have been crocheting about 4 years. I belong to a group of Warm Up America volunteer stitchers where we make the 7 X 9 squares to put together to make lapghans. They go to area nursing homes. I love the fact that you also make things for charity. Just wanted to also say that visiting your blog really calms my day...it's very serene. Thank you!
Hi Pamela!Thanks so much for your kind comment, keep up the great work you are doing for others too! :)
Hi Jennifer,Just found your website and love it! I volunteer at a soup kitchen and lots of our guests walk or bicycle to the kitchen for a nice, healthy, warm lunch, but no hats or gloves. So some of us are planning to make some for winter presents to them and was looking for fast but nice patterns that didn't use a ton of yarn as we are donations only. Just wanted to thank you so much as your patterns are great and you will have helped keep some people warm and cozy this winter for letting us use your patterns. Blessings to you and your family.Jean
Oh my goodness, what a kind soul you are, keep up the awesome work you are doing for your community...I am a big believer of charity work and will be donating some hats to the local homeless this Thanksgiving as well!
I always look forward to seeing a new post from you! It's the yarn not necessarily the pattern that makes your scarves unique:) Keep up the good work and thanks for sharing your ideas!
Thanks so much!
I didn't know if you give any help or not. I've never had a problem with gauge, but I'm trying to make the Rock Candy Hat for my granddaughter and I can't get the gauge right. I 've tried using smaller needles and it still seems way to big. I get above 20 inches for the circumference of the hat after several inches. I don't know what I'm doing wrong.
Thanks for your question! Are you using a similar/same yarn too? If it is just slightly bigger, the hat is very forgiving and stretchy and will likely fit anyway. If it is still huge, I would continue to try an even smaller needle. I hope that helps!
jennifer , was so happy to see The Peaceful Shawl with the wheelchair bound person in mind. I do want to make this for such a person. The pattern call for #15 needles. I have #13 and would like to make it with what I have . How many do I cast on to get the 17" width? I am not sure what to select in the profile box to get this message to you? You are a clever needle artist .
I just discovered your website and am saving to my favorites! I am making Cowl Scarves for Christmas this year and you have given me "more" ideas than I can handle. My favorite is crocheting, but I do dabble in knitting when I have time. Thanks, again for your website. Can't wait to see more. Happy Thanksgiving!
You're so welcome! Glad you like it!
Hi Jennifer!I can't see a contact address, so I'm writing to you here to say that I have crocheted two of your lovely scarves and have put the finished work up on my blog here: http://reflectionsandnature.blogspot.ch/2013/11/cosy-crochet.htmlwith a link back to your lovely patterns here! Warm regards, Sandra
Just saw them and they look gorgeous, love that yarn! I like the flower you added too. :)
Hi Jennifer, I think your blog is wonderful and your patterns are beautiful! Thank you for putting them out there others to use. Do you think you could do a tutorial on the best way to join yarn? other than just tying the two together? Is there a better way? Thanks and Happy New Year! Kris
HI Jennifer, I think your blog is wonderful and I love all your free pattern and project. I crochet as well and I am learning how to knit. send me a email to firstname.lastname@example.org
Hello Jennifer, I love your blog and especially the Cinnabar Button Scarf. I have two questions and I'm hoping you will get back to me. I'm a recent Grandma and I love it...Can the scarf be made to a width of 4"? I'm terrible at math so you will have to tell me how to do that, and secondly, can you tell me the width of the buttons? I'm crippled and cannot leave the house which is fine most days, but when I need a button, I need the width. Please keep the patterns coming. I knit for my DIL and my grandson with the big navy blue eyes...
Here's my email address in case you want it. Maggieemail@example.com.
Hi Jennifer. I examined your mom's eyes last night and she brought your grandmother. I loved her hat and scarf made by you. Your mom said something about a new scarf with a chain and sea glass- do you have a picture of it. Your blog is amazing- keep up your great work.
