Here's A Handy Index Of All My FREE Crochet Designs Available Online!

Hi, I'm Sheila! As an independent crochet designer, I've been publishing crochet patterns as SheilaSchnauzies and as SheilaSparkles for many years now. Thought it was about time I published an index to all of my patterns available online, both free and for-sale. (My for-sale patterns support the vet fund of Sheila's Schnauzies, a state licensed Miniature Schnauzer Rescue in Omaha, Nebraska).

I'm always adding items to this index! To find all my crochet patterns, just click on my bio information and you'll see a list of all my pattern articles or "hubs." If you're looking for a particular pattern and don't find it here, just drop me a message and I'll make sure it gets included.

In addition to the online patterns, I recently published "A Bouquet Of Floral Ornaments To Crochet." It's Volume 1 of my new e-book series, Crochet With Sheila - A Lifetime of Crochet. It's available at

I'm extremely gratified by your response to my patterns! I appreciate each and every one of you crocheters out there and would love to hear from you here in my guestbook!

Happy crocheting...


My Floral Ornaments E-Pattern Book!

Over the past weeks, I have been transferring dozens of crochet patterns from their former home at to here at

Meanwhile, if you do encounter a non-working link to a pattern, please drop me an email to: and I will be happy to send the pattern to you! I sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. Thanks for your patience as I get everything updated!

My Favorite Design Of All... The Dancing Angels Doily - (Modeled by GrandDog Winnie!)


I designed this doily for my BFF Sally. We've been friends for over 30 years. This doily features three different pattern stitches that form rounds of angels. It was a blast designing it and I can't wait to give it to her someday when I finish all the hand beading!

This pattern is available free in my index below.

Order Your Custom Gemstone Jewelry Here! - Sheila's Artisan Creations Catalog!


I love to design semi-precious gemstone jewelry! I make color theme interchangeable magnetic necklace and bracelet sets, bracelets, rings, necklaces, earrings, and pendants too. One of my most popular items are my Arthritis Relief Rings and bracelets! I make them by hand with copper wire, strong magnets and gemstones and they do actually work to reduce arthritis pain in the fingers and hands!

A Note From Your Designer...


Hi, I'm SheilaSchnauzies, also published as SheilaSparkles, and my life's passion is designing in Crochet! I also love to share gifts with friends, and these patterns are my gift to you! I give away about 95% of my pattern designs free. The other 5% are sold on my pattern store at to benefit the vet expenses of my Miniature Schnauzer Rescue, Sheila's Schnauzies.

Just one little favor, please... I would appreciate it if you do not post these patterns anywhere on the Internet or in the 'real world.' Instead, you are most welcome to provide a link to this webpage.

I use a system I call the "Official Schnauzer Difficulty Rating" just for fun, to rate the difficulty of my patterns. If it's a 3/5 or more, I'll explain why I consider it more difficult. A few of my designs use techniques that are a bit unconventional! If it's one of those patterns, I'll warn you ahead of time. I do a lot of custom-fit patterns, for example. They are made to fit YOU, not a measurement from a chart. They're surprisingly easy to do and actually end up fitting. That's a good thing, yes?

So glad you found my patterns! I hope you really enjoy making whatever it is you're making! Crochet hugs, -Sheila

God has surely blessed your hands. So lovely. I like your philosophy ... it can be applied to so many areas in life. I have no doubt your new book will do quite well.

You use a coffee can. I use an empty Clorox wipes dispenser :) The things we do for love. #crochetrules

Am still a crochet newbie but have just taken delivery of two new books by Edie Eckman, so will be ready to go at it again - once I save up for yarn :/ Love the mop refills - what a great idea!
