Hello Darlene. I would like to know how much you would charge to crochet an octopus. I crochet but only afghans and not nearly this talented. Your items are beautiful! Unfortunately I am unable to attach my picture. Do you have another way I can send it? Thank you so much! Jacqueline
Thank you, Jacqueline, for your kind words. And thank you for thinking of me, but I don’t do custom orders.
Darlene I purchased the patter for the Big Kahuna slouch hat and it will not let me download it, can you advise me on how to get my purchase
Hi Cheryl. I sent you message via Etsy. Please note, I don’t think you can download patterns with the Etsy App. You will need to be using a desktop or it may be a browser issue. Here is an Etsy help article regarding download problems: https://help.etsy.com/hc/en-us/articles/115013328108-Downloading-a-Digital-Item?segment=shopping.
Hello, Ms. Hopkins I am needing help locating a pattern it’s the I Do Blanket and it was featured in the may/june 2011 crochet today magazine…I see the post on ravelry.com but there is no way to access the pattern. My nephew just got married and I would like to make it for him…I have the copy of the pattern for years and now it is gone and I would love to get this pattern to make for my nephew can you help me…
Hello! and congratulations to your nephew! Unfortunately, I do not have access to any copies of the magazine. The company also published it in Crafty Ever After in November, 2011 https://www.ravelry.com/patterns/sources/crafty-ever-after/patterns. I have seen this for sale on eBay before and you may be able to find it there.
Hello Darleen, I found this pillow on Pinterest and I’m in love with it. I could’nt find it on your blog. Is there a pattern that we can buy ? https://www.pinterest.com/pin/49047083419529551/
Thanks a lot for your creativity !
Hi Eve-that is a beautiful pillow isn’t it? Unfortunately, it is not my design. You could try doing an image search.
Happy Crocheting! -Darleen

Looking for the shark blanket pattern. Is it available?
Do you mean the shark hat pattern? It can be found here and is a fund raiser for Halos of Hope. http://halosofhope.org/store/items/view/5/lucys_tail_crochet_shark_hat/
Someone sent me a close up picture and they said it was a blanket. Yes, it actually was your hat. Am looking for blanket. Thank you for your time.
You are welcome. Sorry I couldn’t help more. A shark blanket is a FANTASTIC idea. 🙂
