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.

It’s a timeless look that is surprisingly easy to replicate in crochet! The pattern was written with beginners in mind, and is very accessible for people of all crochet skill levels.

This is a very simple pattern, in terms of stitching. Once you get the hang of the mesh stitch, it’s smooth and just flies off the hook! The genius of this pattern is in the actual layout. She does a really cool technique in shaping the shoulders, rather than simply decreasing for the neckline and leaving the sides boxy (which is also a look that I love and do in many of my own designs).

Teri Eggenberger from Good Egg Knits published an Ice Cream Cozy pattern that is not only super fast and easy to make, but it uses both acrylic and cotton yarn to make the absolute perfect ice cream cozy. When I tested the finished product out, not only did it fit perfectly, but the acrylic was soft on my hands while the cotton absorbed all the frost from the container without soaking through.
This pattern is very simple and I really enjoyed it! The back-loop stitches add some interest without losing the sturdiness of single crochet. Simple color-blocking adds even more visual pop. My mind is full of all the potential for this pattern, especially given how quickly it works up. You could make one the night before going on a trip, if you realize you don’t have a bag for your makeup essentials. Or can you imagine how cute this would be as a gift for a friend?
