I can’t praise the texture enough. I’ve always been a fan of post stitches, as soon as I got familiar enough with them to like doing it (I used to hate them as a beginner and now I’m doing designs with them!) It gives you such an impressive look with a very approachable technique. That’s actually why I clicked on this pattern on Ravelry in the first place, the texture.
If you are looking to make quick gifts, prep for a market, or bust your yarn stash, this is the perfect pattern for you. It works up really quickly and makes for a super-practical gift that can easily be dressed up with a reusable coffee cup, a packet of hot cocoa, or a gift card. If you are selling at markets, this cup cozy is sure to be a hit for buyers looking for stocking stuffers at the holidays.

This is a crochet pattern review for a classic, retro granny square poncho found during Leisure Art’s 50th Anniversary sale. Once I got things figured out, the whole project flew by, and I loved the process!
August had me feeling all the Fall Vibes, so I decided to create this C2C square that I plan on turning into a throw pillow. This square is also great as part of an afghan mixed in with squares worked in other Fall images, or corresponding solid colors.
The result was something that will certainly become my favorite fall accessory. It’s warm, but not heavy. The hood is nice to block out a breeze but loose enough that it’s not constricting. And the little accents like fringe and tassels totally elevate this from a basic poncho to a stylish conversation starter. I think I’ll enjoy tossing this over a t-shirt during that transition time period where you need just a little something in the early mornings or the chilly late evenings.
