Hi,i am new.Are these free patterns are all free to sell all the finished product?

These pillows are adorable and I think I'll try one. By the way with summer coming on my teenage daughter wants me to start on a crocheted bikini for her. I've looked in many places but can't seem to find any patterns. Does anyone have any suggestions? Thank you for your help. Bana

I posted a link above, I hope you can see it, it is a link to a PDF , downloadable, for a bikini - I am currently trying to make one myself ( just the top bit) and have winged it so far, but when I saw your post I thought it was time to find a proper pattern -) Hope this helps

I love the dishcloths! It seems that mine get grungy so fast (I have children and a husband who use them for everything but dishes) and I am always needing new ones. Thank you for the very bright cheerful and pretty patterns.

What a great list! I love the cushions and may try to make them for my patio. THANK!
