This pattern is a great choice if you’re looking to try your first sweater and you want a pattern that really walks you through things! I love how this came out in a striping yarn and want to see it in something even more colorful, but at the same time I also want one in a nice soft silver or pale green. The options are endless!

It’s beanie weather! Frigid temperatures are hitting everywhere this winter and cozy caps are more essential than ever! I chose this textured beauty of a beanie for a Christmas present and it did not disappoint. It looks intricate and has a lovely detail to it but it is so effortless to make! It works up quickly and easily while maintaining the look of an elaborate design.
My overall feelings on this pattern are so very positive. It was simple to understand, fun to make, and so lovely to wear! The shape is gorgeous and the stitches add a fun visual pop. Plus I got to try a new stitch and get plenty of practice on it to get better! I would recommend this pattern for sure if you’re comfortable with puff stitches and/or post stitches. Go make one of these in every color!

This crochet pattern is pretty beginner-friendly. It’s a really simple stitch but it helps you practice keeping an even tension so your blanket stays a nice straight-edge rectangle.

This poncho just sang to me from the moment I spotted it. It’s cabled, looks (and is) super cozy, and it just radiates Fall vibes. The pattern is not as scary as it looks either. It’s based on a 6 row repeat throughout, and a great practice project to get comfort with cables as long as you’re comfortable with post stitching.

This design has a lot of options, and I really appreciate it! You can make it long, short, slim or loose. You can add one large tie, a few small ties, or none at all. You can seam the sides up just a tiny bit or halfway or none! You could try this in lighter or thicker yarns if you’re comfortable making up your own sizing.
