Coffee related kitchen items. My friend has that theme and I can't find any patterns to crochet things for her.

Here is a pattern for a crocheted cup of coffee that can be used as a pin cushion or whatever.

I think I voted for baby stuff cuz I just love to do baby things, especially really frilly dresses (like shifios, I visit her site and just drool - have her patterns on my wish list) and would love to see more little boy patterns.

Would also love to see customizable sizes - I am currently working on a very customizable pattern that can work for preemie to adult.

Now I would like to make tank tops and sweaters for the larger woman (like 2X or 3X) and those are hard to come by. Havent found any that I like (and not many at all really) so I would love some of these patterns!

I voted other for a different reason. I would like to see some big name corporations allow some people the rights t to create more patterns using copyrighted items. Like hasbro, nintendo, and so forth.

I voted "other". I am getting interested in socks, & there are way more knit sock patterns than crochet.

I'd also like to see some more shawl patterns.

I have so many baby, hat, dishcloth patterns, I'll never get through them.

Hi, I am so into purses at the moment. I just really enjoy making them. I have fice made at the moment going to donate them to some local groups. I also want to make some shawls. I have always wanted for for myself, but never had taken the time to make one.:crocheting:ty

I am a newbie to this craft but I find myself drawn to purses. All sizes, all shapes.

I voted afghans but I am not sure why since I already have more afghan patterns than I will ever have time in my life to finish! I just love them and I buy every unique one I see. I have yarn bought for 2 at the moment not counting all the bright colors for the kids' round ripples. I have about half a dozen in my "want to do" pile that I haven't bought yarn for yet. Still......if you come up with a unique pattern that I don't already have something close to, I am likely to buy it. It is an obsession. What can ya' do? ;)

HAHAHA -- I just went back through and realized we are reopening a 2008 thread! I guess good ideas are never out of date though. :)

I picked hats. I love to make them but it seems like most patterns are berets or beanies. Something other than a beret or a beanie would be great in my book.

I agree anything in thread.

I have a hard time finding young girl and boy patterns - lots of baby, toddler etc but not much for children 5 -13 (ages of most of my grandkids). I have adapted several toddler or adult patterns for cowls , sweaters etc but I don't like to 'design' when I am ready to make something!! Wish someone who likes to design would focus on this age group of both boys and girls !

I think if you have a mix of all kinds you do best. I should listen to my own advice :lol But I love designing toys and can't focus on much else :lol

I am always on the lookout for patterns that take smaller amounts of yarn like one or two skeins for the entire project. Wristlets, placemats, coffee cozies, cowls or neck warmers, slippers, socks and hats. I'm also a "thread addict" so any patterns that are elegant and can be done with 400 to 1000 yards would be great whether clothing, accessories or decorative house items.

I'd like to see more crochet lingerie and functional crochet bathing suits.

My reasoning is that there are tons of patterns available for all of the other options listed, but I think there is a real place for crochet lingerie, in particular. It can be covering and revealing all at the same time, and given that each piece could be custom made, crochet lingerie can showcase beauty and hide flaws all at once.

I chose other, because I would like to see more colorwork patterns in crochet. I also lean towards thread and fingerling crochet. The closer it is to fabric the better for me.

I would personally like to see more adult female patterns for sweaters and
vests for older woman. Things that run to large x -large sizes which would
be east to put on and off for the elderly and disabled. Sweaters that would
warm and comfortable. A lot of the modern patterns are more fitted and more for show than warmth.
