I posted three FREE crochet patterns for Kindle for today...grab them before they're gone!  (Note: you do not need to have an actual Kindle.  If you have a smartphone, you can download a Kindle reader app for FREE...if all you have is a PC, you can download to your PC...and I believe there may also be a way now of completely bypassing any kind of reader app to read directly online - though please don't quote me on that, as I'm not sure.  I find the PC reader to be quite decent for pattern content...since I don't own a Kindle, I can't say how well it works...but I would think a smaller screen would make patterns kind of difficult to read.)

Here's the circle (you must join to see posts):

I joined the circle, but I can't figure out how to get to the patterns.

Sarasue,

Welcome!

The Kindle books to which the posts pertained were Amazon freebies that were offered at the time, which I used to update on a (more or less) daily basis.  Amazon has since changed the way the listings are handled and I'm unable to list the titles as I once did.  The listings now take forever to load in my browser.  I had tried to keep the listings going as long as possible, but now can't list them until I either get a faster computer or Amazon changes book listings back to the way they were.

If you're looking for crochet patterns on Amazon, you might try a search of "crochet" (minus the quotes) and if you change the pricing to "low to high" from the dropdown menu, you should see a lot of matches.  For the most part, the books with a dual-colored cover page (a beige-colored upper portion of the book, with the middle and bottom in yellow, red, blue, green, etc) representation are the much older ones (although not always).  With those books, it pays to look at the star ratings, because if they're rated too low it usually means they're lacking illustrations.  Many are very poorly rated (and the descriptions talk about the books having been converted to digital format).

A great option for older books like that is the Antique Pattern Library, which is available at:
http://www.antiquepatternlibrary.org/
The Antique Pattern Library (which offers PDFs for free, BTW) has many older books in PDF format, and many of those are the same ones offered on Amazon.  The ones from the Antique Pattern Library often do provide those important illustrations, which Amazon generally doesn't, making the Amazon versions hard to follow.

I'm hoping to someday return to the listings; however, for now, it's not feasible.
