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.

The Mare Knot Pillow – Crochet Pattern Review
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.
Learn A Stitch Dishcloths + Annie’s Hook & Needle Kit Club
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.
Geneva Sweater Dress – Crochet Pattern Review
Simple. That’s the best way to describe this pattern. I’ll warn you, it is slip stitch. But don’t run away screaming just yet! I agree, I am not a slip stitch fan either. But the main dress is actually a modified version that goes much quicker and has more stretch to it.
Fair Isle Gansey Cowl – Crochet Pattern Review
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!
You Can Cope Sweater – Crochet Pattern Review
I was scrolling through Ravelry when a gorgeous colorful sweater caught my eye. I clicked on the thumbnail and discovered that it was not only beautiful, it had a message written on the chest: “You can cope”. Even better than that, this message is written upside down, meaning it’s intended for the wearer to read rather than others. I knew it was the perfect project to make, and I think that was the fastest I ever clicked a purchase link! I hope this review spreads the awareness of this pattern, and others can find this pattern at a suitable time in their lives just like I did.
Tinysaurus – Crochet Pattern Review
If you are looking for a last-minute gift idea for the upcoming holidays or just want to make an adorable gift for a dinosaur lover in your life, the Tinysaurus pattern is for you. It can be made in just a few hours and will make for a truly treasured keepsake. I can’t wait to also try out the larger Bohasaurus pattern as well!
Carl Cardigan – Crochet Pattern Review
this pattern is so simple and fun! The actual stitching is very easy, the design is mostly in the shaping. The silhouette of this cardigan is genius, it’s so flattering and yet casual and comfortable.
Mountain Landscape Wall Hanging – Crochet Pattern Review
The techniques were easy to understand, and the tips were helpful when I remembered to do them. It took a while but each row itself went pretty quickly. The color layout was genius and gives a very impactful piece. The fringe is a genius addition, I wouldn’t have thought to add that myself but it really adds that final punch to the overall look. I think this ended up being a great reintroduction to tapestry crochet and it actually left me wanting to do more! I think artsy wall hangings done in tapestry crochet are going to be very on-trend throughout this coming fall and winter, and I look forward to trying as many of them as I can!
Texture Block Cowl – Crochet Pattern Review
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.
