This pattern has been one of my absolute favorite makes in the past year or so. I had fun making it, I truly enjoyed each step, and I love the look of the finished result.

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.
I really strongly recommend this pattern and I hope you try it out yourself! It’s simple enough for relative beginners, if you’re willing to try a few times to get sections like the teeth or the toes correct. These can be as simple or as complex as you like, it’s up to your imagination! Give them as gifts, bring them to craft fairs, or just make one for your desk in your favorite colors. I’m so happy I tried it and I want everyone to have one.
I really enjoyed this pattern. It’s nice to find a free pattern for something small and quick, and end up with a highly useful (and cute!) item in the end. I love how my color-blocking came out, and I definitely recommend this pattern if you’re wanting to use up some stash cotton or even buy something new.
I found this pattern a complete joy to make. The colors kept things interesting, the stitching is simple once you get the technique down, and the construction is lovely! It’s comfy and big and warm and the striped colors will definitely draw attention.
This month’s Yarn Crafts & Coffee finds include Spring, Summer and Fall free and paid crochet patterns, and a free knitting pattern for a cozy cardigan.
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!
I was incredibly happy with the process and my results in this finished cardigan. It’s eye-catching, fun, and comfy! The pattern was simple to understand and even the sewing wasn’t hard. It just takes time to put all the squares together, but at the end, you’ll have a gorgeous cardigan to show off to the world!
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!
This crochet pattern is one I would very strongly recommend. It was easy to make, it doesn’t use too much yarn so it’s affordable, and it gives you a very useful and super cute accessory at the end. I plan to use this adorable little bag a lot this coming summer! It’s not huge so it won’t weigh you down, but it has the space for the basics like a wallet and phone.
