What is Crochet Chiq?

So you maybe be asking yourself, what is Crochet Chiq? Isn't crochet something you see old ladys do? I have started this blog not only to share my own creations but other Chiq items. Crochet is a great and fun way to let your inner diva come out. 

First I will start with a little bit about me, Hello everyone I'm Mary Kathryn. I am 25 and a proud mom of 2 wonderful boys under the age of 5. I just got a job teaching as a crochet instructor at a local Micheal's Arts and Crafts store. I also will start another job in the fall as a children's choir director.  I learned how to crochet about two year ago via youtube.comThe following are the two sites that taught me what I know.

Mikey from the crochet crowd is an amazing resource in pretty much all areas of crochet and his stuff is always chiq and fabulous. you can find him 

Teresa is another great one to watch especially for cute crochet animals and hats. You can find her @
So this is my way to give back and just try to share my passion for the fiber art that is crochet! 
I will be posting (as much as possible) things I have made along with my own free patterns and useful links to all the other divas and divos that are interested in pursuing this fabulous art form!! If you have any questions feel free to ask.

Thread Cross Bookmark

I used Aunt Lydia's Crochet thread and a size D hook. Make a magic circle Round 1 Ch3, 2dc, ch2, 3dc, ch2, 3dc, ch2, 3dc, ch2 and join. Sides and top of cross Ch3 2dc, ch2, dc3 in any ch2 sp. Turn and *sl to ch2, ch3,2dc, ch2,3dc. *Turn and repeat * repeat everything in this step 3 more times. Cut thread and weave in ends at the ends of the sides. Bottom of the cross When you get to the last side repeat the * section 2 more times for a total of 4 shells for the bottom and 2 shells for the sides not including the center. On the top of the cross attach yarn and chain 26, skip the first 5 and sl to the first chain. Then I added a tassel. If thread isn't your thing check out this great bookmark Stitch 11 made from my Cross Bangle pattern! Check out the Stitch 11 post here
