Freebie Friday: Maple Leaves Trim!

The fall weather is here. I haven’t turned on my air conditioner in the oven I have for an apartment. I have only had one milkshake this week instead of my usual two or three summertime quota. I’ve worn my hair down all this week. And the real proof that summer is over: I’m wearing long-sleeved shirts again. When the fall weather arrives, not only are we reunited with our sweaters but it’s time to bring out our fall decorations. And what better way to spruce up a favorite tablecloth than with some crocheted fall foliage? Today’s FREE PROJECT is the maple leaves pattern from the aptly named 75 ExquisitTrims in Thread Crochet by Caitlin Sainio. Make this trim your own with your favorite reds, oranges, and yellows of autumn. We’ve given you the pattern–the rest is up to you!Maple Leaves TrimFrom airy geometric patterns, delicate eyelets and fringes, to gossamer calligraphic borders, lush floral chains, and charming motifs that children will love—the possibilities for making stunning decorative edgings are endless. This collection of delicate edgings and trims has both written directions and easy-to-follow charts, plus gorgeous full-color photographs. Detailed information is provided for the finished dimensions, thread required, and the number of colors needed for each trim. For beginners there is a comprehensive review of crochet basics and for experts a wide variety of edgings, some more complicated, and an easy-to-use cross-reference format. All the designs are organized by theme and once you find the perfect trim for a project, you can easily locate the pattern and start crocheting. 75 Exquisite Trims in Thread Crochet also offers plenty of ideas for using your edgings to customize your projects or embellish store-bought items.
