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!

The Sleepy Collection by KayteDid’s is a great pattern for anyone that loves to make soft stuffies for kids. Whether you are gifting them or selling them, this pattern provides four different animal patterns that are perfect to make for gifts or markets in just a few hours. With the purchase of just this one pattern, you will have directions to make a unicorn, a bear, a dinosaur, or a cow. The pattern modifications to create each animal and to customize your project are really easy to follow, and give you endless possibilities for new toys to make.
The long stocking cap pattern was very easy and an excellent beginner pattern. The designer included several helpful hints such as links to videos that explain different stitches and techniques, tips from her own experience, a hat size chart and it includes the option (and pattern) to create elf ears on your hat! I am really pleased with this hat and the ease of the pattern.
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.
I love this pattern! I love the fit, I love how it drapes, I love that the sleeves, and the bottom are kind of gathered/ruched in by the ribbing. It’s flattering, it’s comfy and warm, and the simple but interesting texture is just so perfect. I’m raving, I know I am, but I love these projects when you can just be so happy about the finished piece!
I cannot overstate how comfortable this piece is. I realize part of that is to the credit of the yarn, which is one of my all-time favorites because it’s so luxuriously soft and perfect for garments, but I need to credit the designer as well. This shape is very boxy and simple, but having the edgings all pull in tighter and give it some flattering curves is so smart! It’s light, it’s comfy and warm but not too thick, and I can see myself wearing it all of the fall season.
I briefly considered whether it might be possible for a sweater to be too bright, and then I realized I didn’t care about the answer and put this yarn into my cart. The result was so totally worth it. This pattern was fun, it’s well-written and easy to understand, and it looks so cool!
This pattern is just plain old fun. There’s plenty of shaping, the stitch is enjoyable to work up, and the sleeves are so interesting to make! It’s beautiful, comfortable, flirty and flattering, and I strongly recommend you make one for yourself or your girlfriends for the summer.
When I saw this bunny lovey, I thought it was the perfect choice for a Summer baby shower gift. The crochet pattern was easy to follow and there are plenty of pictures for you to reference.
