Crochet Note: Men crochet too! And impressively too! Look at this!!!
stevenstitches: doily- see how big this sucker is? I wasn’t happy with it when I made it, but it has grown on me.
Very nice, I would of been proud of it.
Yay for crochet! This proves it is for everybody :)

I love Matt’s blog! He’s like the male version of Lucy (Attic24). His blog is gorgeous.
Some people were asking for written patterns so I did one of them. Then Tumblr went down and I lost the will to live… I’ll probably get around to the first one tomorrow. :-)
Disclaimer: I didn’t create this pattern, just translated it from the chart into written instructions.
Disclaimer 2: I went through it pretty quickly and while I did test it I may have missed something. If you have any questions, feel free to ask and I’ll try to help! Have fun!

This one was a little trickier as I couldn’t find that special symbol anywhere and I don’t know the language, but I took an educated guess. Your mileage may vary. :-D
Reblogging for both charts being translated to pattern now.
