This is a very simple pattern to follow and to stitch up. There’s not any complicated shaping or fancy textures on this, the designer lets the simple stitch provide a gorgeous comfy fit and gives the yarn the chance to show off. This top is also very comfortable, and this stitch has a fun sensory texture that I enjoyed running my fingers across while wearing the top (that’s not too weird to do at your desk at work, right?) I wholeheartedly recommend this pattern.
The Ollie the Mini Octopus pattern works up super quickly and makes an adorable little, squishy octopus. Made in super chunky yarn, it makes a great little toy or pocket pal, but it can also double as a perfect keychain in any weight yarn. I have a feeling these little guys are going to be a huge hit at my next market, so if you need me in the next week or two, I’ll be making more mini octopi!
This scrunchie was so fast and easy to make! The pattern is well written, and it even includes a link to the video for it. I want to make a bunch in all kinds of colors! I think they would make great little gifts (or stocking stuffers for the upcoming Christmas season!) or even a way to customize matching your hairpieces to an outfit. Scrunchies have definitely made a comeback so don’t fight it and whip up a few of these yourself!
This fun and easy C2C mug rug is great for using scraps of yarn, and the perfect piece to add to your living room, kitchen or dining room to house your favorite coffee and snack. This mug rug also works great as a mini washcloth, and as a doily for plants, candles and so much more! This is a beginner friendly series, and this mug rug is a great project to pair with watching your favorite TV show or movie, especially if you are working on a few for a gift. You don’t even have to count boxes if you don’t want to! You can use a soft tape measure to measure as you go.
There is something special about the classic, traditional granny square that always warms my heart! I am so in love with how these little boxes turned out, and how awesome they look hung gallery wall style. It was a great way to use up my stash, and I’ve been having so much fun, I haven’t stopped! This project is addicting.
This hoodie is a very nice spring and summer piece. The concept of a short-sleeved hooded layer can come off a little weird if it’s not done well, but the silhouette of this one pulls it off perfectly. It looks casual and chic and comfortable, and I knew I had to have one. This piece has a very simple construction and I appreciate that. This construction lets you make it to fit your own size and shape, and allows for customization in both length and width so it will fit just the way you want depending on your personal style!
This is a free crochet pattern and video tutorial showing how to crochet the Through the Window Afghan – a fun afghan that uses the inset mosaic crochet technique. Don’t let it scare you! It’s comprised of simple single crochet stitches, chains and easy double crochets. 11 sizes included.
Not only is the Mermaid Lollie pattern super easy and quick to work up, but it comes with so many detailed modifications that this one pattern could constitute a whole book worth of patterns! In addition, this pattern was created for The Sunshine Yarn Project, which is a phenomenal non-profit organization that creates beautiful handmade items for children in crisis.
when I started to feel that urge to update my home decor this spring a little bit, I came across this absolutely adorable cupcake “mug rug” that I could put on my coffee table instead of boring coasters, and I can even make a few extra for my birthday this year, in my favorite colors!
