I wanted to wear it to the SF Maker Fair this year.
I attended this event and taught crocheting and also participated in the Free Form booth.
I used many motifs that I found in the Duplet and Mod magazines from Russia. I found the paisley designs and some of the leaf patterns in the new magazines http://www.duplet-crochet.com/ has been offering " Crochet School". They are just books with the diagrams - no fashion pix etc.
I highly recommend this site and these magazines - especially if you prefer to work from diagrams!
