My overall thoughts on this pattern are pure joy. It was fun to work up, easy to understand, and very simple to modify to my gauge and my body. The tie idea is creative and definitely something I’ve seen in store-bought tops, but I never would have considered emulating that in crochet! DK yarn was a great choice, and this top feels like a cloud. I am going to rock this thing with some cute summer outfits!
The Bitty Buddies Collection does not disappoint! The finished pieces were absolutely adorable and they are the perfect gift for babies, toddlers, and little kids! I could barely keep my kids away from my finished pieces! Stuck on You Crochet created a great pattern that makes duplicating her precious little buddies easy for anyone with a bit of crocheting experience and a desire to make something adorable!
The pattern is very easy to follow, and gives sizing for newborns through adult. I went with two simple colors, but would love cute in any number of color combinations!

Thinking back on the whole process, this design was a joy from start to finish. It was fun, it was easy, and it gave me a really nice and adorable finished pillow to enjoy.
It’s nearly February and hearts are everywhere you look. Don’t get me wrong; I’m not against Valentine’s Day at all! But I couldn’t resist the opportunity to create something that is the antithesis of the usual cutesy symbol of love. I think it is a fantastic twist on tradition.
When I began this project I was not actually a member BUT (spoilers), I have since signed up because this was super fun. I was sent this kit from a friend who just didn’t plan to do this one themselves and wanted to see if I was interested in trying it out and reviewing it. I decided to use this as a test of sorts, to see if I would consider this a worthwhile kit if I had paid the monthly fee. If I liked it, I planned to sign up for real. And I just did! Come check out my review in more detail.
Simple. That’s the best way to describe this pattern. I’ll warn you, it is slip stitch. But don’t run away screaming just yet! I agree, I am not a slip stitch fan either. But the main dress is actually a modified version that goes much quicker and has more stretch to it.
