There are them what says crochet is silly; that you can only make tissue-box covers and mats to put around the lav. To them I speak !
I did a filtered search on Ravelry of a designer named Robyn Chachula; and the results were only of her crochet patterns for actual items of clothing – not a scarf or sock (let alone a coffee-cup cosy) amongst ’em. But the search results had to be tied in to my own Ravelry account: so I changed the search terms and now you can access all her designs on that website. I fondly hope.
Just look at what a truly creative person can design !!!
