I really strongly recommend this pattern and I hope you try it out yourself! It’s simple enough for relative beginners, if you’re willing to try a few times to get sections like the teeth or the toes correct. These can be as simple or as complex as you like, it’s up to your imagination! Give them as gifts, bring them to craft fairs, or just make one for your desk in your favorite colors. I’m so happy I tried it and I want everyone to have one.

I found this pattern a complete joy to make. The colors kept things interesting, the stitching is simple once you get the technique down, and the construction is lovely! It’s comfy and big and warm and the striped colors will definitely draw attention.
Not only is the Mermaid Lollie pattern super easy and quick to work up, but it comes with so many detailed modifications that this one pattern could constitute a whole book worth of patterns! In addition, this pattern was created for The Sunshine Yarn Project, which is a phenomenal non-profit organization that creates beautiful handmade items for children in crisis.
This pattern really is fast, easy, and adorable! Given how simple the pattern is to do, I feel like the flowers still look intricate and dainty.
I was incredibly happy with the process and my results in this finished cardigan. It’s eye-catching, fun, and comfy! The pattern was simple to understand and even the sewing wasn’t hard. It just takes time to put all the squares together, but at the end, you’ll have a gorgeous cardigan to show off to the world!
I thoroughly enjoyed the pattern itself, it uses one of my favorite stitches. It’s a little mindless for the middle bag portion, but that’s not the worst thing in the world. You can put on something interesting and just zone out stitching around and around and around! I really enjoyed the flowers on top, too. I recommend you check it out if you’ve wanted to make an adorable everyday tote!
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 love this pattern! I love the fit, I love how it drapes, I love that the sleeves, and the bottom are kind of gathered/ruched in by the ribbing. It’s flattering, it’s comfy and warm, and the simple but interesting texture is just so perfect. I’m raving, I know I am, but I love these projects when you can just be so happy about the finished piece!
In honor of the new school year beginning, I thought these crochet numbers would make the perfect little set. I found this to be a great, quick pattern to use up scrap yarn and turn it into cute and functional pieces!
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.
