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!

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.
I love the bobble-type texture on the sides of this pumpkin, giving it a really fun aesthetic.
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.
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).
With the warm summer months upon us, crocheted items become somewhat limited as far as what is functional. It is highly unlikely you’ll see anyone sporting a beanie and scarf in the 80+ degree weather, so when I found this dainty spa set, I thought it was the perfect creation for the season.
I really enjoyed all the small touches on this pattern. This is definitely a bag that no one else on the street is going to have! I can’t stop singing the praises of this pattern. It was fun, it was simple to understand, and it gave me a sturdy and adorable bag that I will be proudly carrying around all summer!
This top is pretty darn cute, and great for a Summer afternoon hanging out at home. The pattern is very in-depth on measurements, and describes how to get the best custom size possible.
