I can’t praise the texture enough. I’ve always been a fan of post stitches, as soon as I got familiar enough with them to like doing it (I used to hate them as a beginner and now I’m doing designs with them!) It gives you such an impressive look with a very approachable technique. That’s actually why I clicked on this pattern on Ravelry in the first place, the texture.

August had me feeling all the Fall Vibes, so I decided to create this C2C square that I plan on turning into a throw pillow. This square is also great as part of an afghan mixed in with squares worked in other Fall images, or corresponding solid colors.
This was a very simple and quick pattern, so there isn’t too much to say. The directions are pretty straight forward in terms of the structure. The most difficult part is also the most striking part of the stitch texture. The “ivy stitch” is where this pattern gets its name, and it’s a really cool look! This technique involves working what are essentially spike stitches into a sort of semi-circle shape, working into different previous rows to get the desired look.
I love the creativity in this pattern. It looks interesting, and in a cute color it can easily blend into your decor. Or if it’s a gift for a kid, it would look fun in a brightly colored shade to stand out! I appreciated the thorough instructions in both the stitching and the assembly, and I’m very happy with my finished result.
With the warm summer months upon us, crocheted items become somewhat limited as far as what is functional. It is highly unlikely you’ll see anyone sporting a beanie and scarf in the 80+ degree weather, so when I found this dainty spa set, I thought it was the perfect creation for the season.
This Boho Towel Ring works up extremely quickly, and makes a trendy and useful addition to your kitchen decor. They make great housewarming gifts, especially when paired with a cute kitchen towel. You can also easily make them larger to hold towels outside at the pool or in the bathroom. The possibilities are endless!
Summer is approaching, which means it’s time to stash-bust our cotton yarn! This pattern was fun, simple, interesting, and a joy from start to finish. I recommend it wholeheartedly and you should go check it out right away!
This pattern was very easy to follow. The fabric is comprised of simple double crochets and chains, and it’s a basic construction of two identical rectangles sewn together. This a great project for a confident beginner. It will be versatile top that I can see paired with jeans, shorts or over a maxi dress.
This pattern is mindless because it’s just one row that you repeat for the entire length. You also don’t have a strict row count, it’s a length suggestion. So you can turn off your brain and just stitch along to a movie. The finished shawl is gorgeous and will make a wonderful conversation-starter accessory for spring evenings when heavy coats aren’t needed anymore.
This pattern was so much fun to make and so simple. I am glad I chose the yarn I did! A special, colorful, one-of-a-kind cardigan that you are not going to find in stores! I would buy it and do the same thing again in a heartbeat, just to use a different colorway and have even more bright beautiful sweaters perfect for Spring and Fall!
