This cotton scarf is crocheted in size 3 cotton crochet thread; while it looks intricate and detailed, it's actually an easy pattern to crochet, dispelling the myth that thread crochet is always difficult to do.

  • Lace Doily With Ruffled Edging - (Pictured) Sandi Marshall designed this pretty doily to be worked in size 10 crochet thread. It's a lovely "little something" you can use to beautify any room in your home.


  • Vintage Thread Crochet Spider Doily - Here's a round doily that resembles a lacy spider web, hence the name. This is a vintage design that originally appeared in an American Thread Company book called Crochet Treasures.


  • Oval Filet Crochet Doily - There are several different versions of this pretty doily, and all of them look like interesting crochet projects. The doily is finished off with an eye-catching cluster stitch edging. Both the pattern and the edging tutorial are by Sandi Marshall.

Thread Crochet Motifs and Appliques

  • Crocheted Snowflake Applique: (pictured) I've crocheted this snowflake applique a couple different times, once with crochet thread and once with yarn. Both are nice, but I think the thread crochet version is far more useful and versatile. I used my finished motif to make a snowflake potholder. I'm thinking of making a few more for sewing onto scarves, hats, sweaters and bags.


  • Beaded Crochet Snowflake - Using this pattern, you'll combine crochet thread, embroidery floss, beads and wire to create a strong, flexible snowflake that can be used in many different ways.


  • Small Cluster Flower Thread Crochet Motif - You can make this pretty little flower using the materials of your choice, but Sandi Marshall used size 10 crochet thread for making her sample flower. This is a good pattern for using up odds and ends of thread.
