Does anyone have any patterns for crochet lettering? I would be interested trying this out. I have looked online, but don't understand how to follow the chart patterns. Any help appreciated.

I guess you mean as in a name crochet to hang on the wall or put in a frame. I found a book a few years ago and studied it a long time before I started. It is really sort of easy once you get started. My stitches are uneven and some rows are crooked but it is mine and I did it.The name of the book is Leisure Arts, Your name and more in Filet Crochet. I think there is a copyright statement in my book, which means to not copy without the author's permission. Just take the bull by the horns and get started and I'm sure everything will look nice when you finish. Luciee {;^)

filet crochet, basically solid "blocks" and "mesh" holes that form the letters.
Sending a link that explains it better, there are also free alphabet charts online.

Thanks for the link Paula, this finally makes some sense. Is there a place to find the lettering in small letters rather than all caps?
