Well I have been Crocheting for 57 years since I was 9.
I only do small things.
I have been making squares , with very different patterns for about 9 months. When I find a very different one I add it to my small pile, to make a 1st ever big piece.
I did make a grape pattern doily with YARN ( in July )and it came out about 30 inches wide. ( for my son & DIL )
For G-Daughters >
The scarves I made are like Jessica Simpsons ( the square block ) and the 8 bar pattern one that looks like the blossom stitch, to me any way.( I just used the stitch idea !!) No Pattern.
I am also Knitting ( self taught )Fun Fur Scarves for my family and friends.
When I knit , it looks like I'm Crocheting, I hold the thread with my left hand. and (Knit-chet) Ha ha ha
I also never sell.

I love to crochet and it's my favorite thing. Been making some Christmas gifts. I could crochet all day! I taught myself a 13. Nobody crochets in the whole family. My mother bought me a book,one pack of yarn and a I needle. I still got the book. I'm 45 now.

I crochet too. I have been crocheting over metal hangers.
Got an oder for 50. Guess I will be busy for a while. Dont get much for them but it occupies my time. Finished a queen size bed spread for my grand dauther. And a poncho for her sister. She put it on immediately, boy was I gloting.

I've been working on a crocheted throw rug made from old tee shirts. I got the idea from here:

Marti.......isnt that kool? I saw on another forum where a girl crocheted a small purse out of t-shirts. So, this past summer as I venture to yard/garage sales I have been buying t-shirts (very very cheap and if I like the color)
Have you crocheted using plastic bags?? those are interesting to make also
