Overall, I’m quite pleased with my new Country Grace Pullover. It was an easy crochet pattern to follow worked in a stitch pattern similar to the classic granny stitch, and easy to adjust to fit just the way I wanted. This is an excellent Spring and Summer top, though living in Florida, I will enjoy it all year long.

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!
This knot pillow has been on my list for a long time. It looks very different from a basic square couch pillow, and fun to squish. It’s creative and interesting, but also chic and classy! Fair warning, the stitching is easy, but it takes a very long time.

Winter usually means snow and at my house, snow equals snowman. So it was a natural choice for December to make one that will last all year long! I chose this little guy because I just thought the top hat was too cute! So many patterns have snowpeople wearing beanies topped with a pouf. While they are adorable, this top hat really caught my eye so I had to make it!
This cowl has so much surface area that it easily covers your neck and would even cover an open neckline of a shirt. It would be great for spring or fall, as well as for relatively mild winter days. And I know this pattern looks complicated, but trust me that the actual stitches are simple!
Adorable little baby hat perfect for newborn photos. The pattern is written so well, and the hat works up quickly.
This pattern is so fun, simple, and easy. The ribbing takes the bulk of the time, and then suddenly you just do a few rows of basic shaping and it’s done, you have a new accessory ready to go! The texture lends itself to both solid and variegated yarns beautifully, and lets you choose if you want a neutral to go with everything or a bright rainbow to add some pop to your outfit!
This pattern was very easy to follow. The cowl and the body are both in a simple repetitive pattern comprised of easy half double crochets, chains and double crochets, and worked from top down, it makes it very easy to try on as you go to make sure it fits just the way you like. I had trouble meeting gauge, and was able to adjust how I needed to make it fit, but if gauge is met, there is no doubt in my mind that this project wouldn’t be great for a confident beginner.
This pattern was very easy to follow. Don’t let the pattern scare you at all because it’s worked in just simple chains, single crochets and treble crochets. If you can work a double crochet, a treble crochet is just one extra yarn over in the beginning, and one extra yarn over and pull through in the end making this a great project for a confident beginner, and a plus – it can be worn two ways.
