I love the simplicity of popping a cute vest over a solid-color shirt and then it feels like a whole new outfit! This is why I was drawn to the simple but beautiful Tolosa Vest. I fell in love with the picture and when I saw it was designed by Lena Skvagerson, I knew it would also be a well-written pattern to make it even better! And in this case, I was right – it was an enjoyable and easy pattern that gave me a comfy and adorable winter accessory.

This pattern is a great choice if you’re looking to try your first sweater and you want a pattern that really walks you through things! I love how this came out in a striping yarn and want to see it in something even more colorful, but at the same time I also want one in a nice soft silver or pale green. The options are endless!
This poncho just sang to me from the moment I spotted it. It’s cabled, looks (and is) super cozy, and it just radiates Fall vibes. The pattern is not as scary as it looks either. It’s based on a 6 row repeat throughout, and a great practice project to get comfort with cables as long as you’re comfortable with post stitching.
This design has a lot of options, and I really appreciate it! You can make it long, short, slim or loose. You can add one large tie, a few small ties, or none at all. You can seam the sides up just a tiny bit or halfway or none! You could try this in lighter or thicker yarns if you’re comfortable making up your own sizing.
I sincerely enjoyed stitching up this pattern. It’s simple stitches with a little bit of interest, and it looks just as gorgeous in bright colors as it does in simple neutrals. I definitely recommend checking this pattern out if you’re wanting to make some simple scarves for gifts or donations this year, or needing to add to your winter accessories wardrobe.
I cannot overstate how comfortable this piece is. I realize part of that is to the credit of the yarn, which is one of my all-time favorites because it’s so luxuriously soft and perfect for garments, but I need to credit the designer as well. This shape is very boxy and simple, but having the edgings all pull in tighter and give it some flattering curves is so smart! It’s light, it’s comfy and warm but not too thick, and I can see myself wearing it all of the fall season.
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 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.
This is a free crochet pattern for how to crochet the Octavia Scarf – an easy scarf pattern worked in simple half double crochets with some front and back post stitches in there to create the textured lines. Four sizes included and video tutorials.
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.
