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.
Cabled pillows are an everlasting trend, and I’ll proudly be here for it forever! It’s a timeless look that goes with any decor.

This is a sweet little baby hat that is easy to adjust with different yarn types and/or embellishments, and it’s perfect for Spring or as a gift for a bunny themed baby shower or nursery.
This pattern is so fun, simple, and easy. The ribbing takes the bulk of the time, and then suddenly you just do a few rows of basic shaping and it’s done, you have a new accessory ready to go! The texture lends itself to both solid and variegated yarns beautifully, and lets you choose if you want a neutral to go with everything or a bright rainbow to add some pop to your outfit!
I had a lot of fun making this simple-but-gorgeous piece! This sweater is definitely one that will get people asking “where did you buy that?” quickly followed by “there’s no way you MADE that!” It’s an interesting silhouette, it was literally designed to look good with variegated yarn, and it’s also comfy! It was a no-brainer.
