I've been designing and crocheting my own items-sweaters, shawls, purses, backpacks, scarves, gloves etc for over 15 years now. I just never thought to write them down. I need help. If anyone knows of a free program, free template, or a free tutorial for how to put a crochet pattern down on paper, I'd be SUPER Grateful! Thanks in advance to anyone who answers! I'd be happy to crochet for anyone who would like something. At this point I only sell by word of mouth, which in my way of doing something is that I make the first item for whomever (usually a friend or casual acquaintence) asked me to do it-usually for free. If someone whom That Person knows now wants the same item in a different color or texture, size, etc...that one I charge for. I have never used someone else's pattern for sale items. And, believe it or not, In my 25+ years of Crochet, Knitting, and all other crafting I've yet to make anything for me. I'm my worst customer, I guess...lol. The list of things I've made for others, just for them to have, birthday gifts, Christmas gifts, baby showers, bridal showers, and a bunch of other reasons for crafting, is Super Long. Probably in the mid 5,000's.
