Now that I have been bitten by the “scrubbie” bug, I have been searching for free patterns to try out while waiting for my books from Japan to arrive.
So far, I have had another go at the pattern “Super Simple Tawashi Flower” by Marte at “Shh..I’m Crocheting”. This time I did a set of 6.
Then a made a matching one using the pattern “Springtime Coaster” by Doni Speigle.
When I get a spare moment, I will work on this list of more patterns that I might try. Some of these patterns are on Ravelry. You will need a free membership to access them. Some of them use a Japanese charting system for the instructions. There is a helpful link at the bottom of this blog post if you need help with the symbols.

JAPANESE CHART HELP-This page has a list of most of the symbols you will come across. If you click on the symbol, it will take you to a page where you can see step-by-step pictures of the process for that stitch.
These free patterns are now available with pictures on my website.
