This crochet pattern met all my expectations. It was simple enough to make but held my interest, it looks more complicated than it ended up being, and it gives a beautiful but laid-back look to pretty much any warm-weather outfit.

This pattern is wonderfully simple! Most of the stitching is a basic rectangle with a little bit of shaping for the neck and sleeves. Then you just sew the pieces together and enjoy it! If someone is looking to get into garments and wants to try a relatively simple one, I highly recommend this one. It’s not always easy, and of course there’s some frogging involved to get your fit just right sometimes, but it would be a great choice for an approachable garment pattern.
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.
This designer did an amazing job! There’s so much potential in this pattern. I especially like that it’s completely customizable! I had zero issues with the pattern, and now I want to make 10 more with different colors and yarn choices! I highly recommend it.

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!
Thinking back on the whole process, this design was a joy from start to finish. It was fun, it was easy, and it gave me a really nice and adorable finished pillow to enjoy.
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.
When I began this project I was not actually a member BUT (spoilers), I have since signed up because this was super fun. I was sent this kit from a friend who just didn’t plan to do this one themselves and wanted to see if I was interested in trying it out and reviewing it. I decided to use this as a test of sorts, to see if I would consider this a worthwhile kit if I had paid the monthly fee. If I liked it, I planned to sign up for real. And I just did! Come check out my review in more detail.
