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.

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!
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.
My first official project for the Fall season is this headband with cute little fox ears. As a bonus, one of my nieces loves all things fox so I thought this would be a great birthday gift for her.
This bag is worked using a simple single crochet stitch worked into the back loop to create this fun, ribbed pattern paired with a trendy color block pattern. It’s finished with a snap button, but an alternative to this would be to leave off the flap, crochet a chain loop instead, and sewing on a respective sized button.
This is a very simple pattern, in terms of stitching. Once you get the hang of the mesh stitch, it’s smooth and just flies off the hook! The genius of this pattern is in the actual layout. She does a really cool technique in shaping the shoulders, rather than simply decreasing for the neckline and leaving the sides boxy (which is also a look that I love and do in many of my own designs).
If you love keeping your lip balm handy, need a last-minute gift, or are in major market prep, I highly recommend this pattern for a handy lip balm holder! It is really easy to follow, and it comes with the most adorable printable inserts to make it look really classy.
I really enjoyed all the small touches on this pattern. This is definitely a bag that no one else on the street is going to have! I can’t stop singing the praises of this pattern. It was fun, it was simple to understand, and it gave me a sturdy and adorable bag that I will be proudly carrying around all summer!
This was is such a joy to make! The pattern was simple and easy to understand, and has a lot of wiggle room to make it your own.
This top is pretty darn cute, and great for a Summer afternoon hanging out at home. The pattern is very in-depth on measurements, and describes how to get the best custom size possible.
