This is a crochet pattern review for a classic, retro granny square poncho found during Leisure Art’s 50th Anniversary sale. Once I got things figured out, the whole project flew by, and I loved the process!

The result was something that will certainly become my favorite fall accessory. It’s warm, but not heavy. The hood is nice to block out a breeze but loose enough that it’s not constricting. And the little accents like fringe and tassels totally elevate this from a basic poncho to a stylish conversation starter. I think I’ll enjoy tossing this over a t-shirt during that transition time period where you need just a little something in the early mornings or the chilly late evenings.
My first official project for the Fall season is this headband with cute little fox ears. As a bonus, one of my nieces loves all things fox so I thought this would be a great birthday gift for her.
The pattern itself was a wonderful experience. It’s so easy to understand, and the stitch pattern is one of my favorites for a reason. 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.

If you are looking for a relatively quick and easy amigurumi to try out, this pattern is a great one to try! The directions are short and straight to the point. If you understand how to make a magic circle, single crochet, increase, decrease, and a few other crocheting methods, you can make this adorable hamster.
This is a free crochet pattern for how to crochet a Watermelon Applique. So easy to change up the size by changing the yarn size and hook, and endless uses for the applique.
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.
