This top can be dressed up or down, and would be perfect for any occasion. It’s warm and comfy, and more lightweight than it might look. This pattern is so simple and yet very rewarding. You get into a rhythm working up the rows, and then before you know it you’re finished! It was a joy from start to finish and I recommend it for yourself or as a nice gift.

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.

I pattern tested this for my friend Rhelena back around March. I am a big fan of the patterns from Crochet n Crafts, and the large variety of projects and stitch patterns. This is a highly recommended pattern. It is also a great comfort item to make for someone in need – work it in… Read more
I did not intend on making a beret at first. Originally, I set out to make a chunky slouch hat but I ended up working it up too wide. After I finished the whole thing, I was playing with the fit and discovered that it made a great beret – I just wish I would… Read more
The day after writing up the draft for the 10″ x 10″ Mini Blanket (back in May – yikes!), I drafted the following post on a 18″ x 18″ Mini Blanket. After completing my 10″ x 10″ Mini Blanket, I took a trip back to Joann‘s to get some more chunky yarn and start on… Read more
My sister-in-law, Briana of Briana Lugo Photography, has been mentioning to me for the last year or so how easy chunky mini blankets are to crochet, how little yarn and time they take and how popular they are. Have I listened? Well, I did but I didn’t look into it or try my… Read more
