There are some really talented people out there that are making patterns you may never see in a magazine, but that are worthy of so much recognition. As I find web sites of these designers I try to add the links here. Enjoy being inspired and instructed by these great designers.
The Art of Tangle- very pretty designs, most with a very cozy feel and look to them.
Stitch Diva- very professional site. They also have a newsletter to keep you posted on their latest sales and patterns.
Garn Studios- this is one of my favorite designer sites. So many beautiful patterns I could spend hours drooling.
Art of Crochet- very trendy patterns for sale
Vicki's Crochet Designs- she has some great cross stitch patterns for afghans
Surawhit- she has some really pretty jewelry designs.
