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.
I love the creativity of this pattern. A rainbow can be a fairly simple shape, but this one manages to have a cute retro look to it no matter what colors you end up using! And the bobbles add beautiful texture to what could easily become a boring stitch pattern otherwise.

This top can be dressed up or down, and would be perfect for any occasion. It’s warm and comfy, and more lightweight than it might look. This pattern is so simple and yet very rewarding. You get into a rhythm working up the rows, and then before you know it you’re finished! It was a joy from start to finish and I recommend it for yourself or as a nice gift.
I have made these eggs multiple times because they are that quick, easy and fun to make! Plus, they are a big hit with kids! They are soft, reusable and they won’t break so I have gotten many a request for these to go in Easter baskets as well as for decoration for the Easter holiday.

this pattern is so simple and fun! The actual stitching is very easy, the design is mostly in the shaping. The silhouette of this cardigan is genius, it’s so flattering and yet casual and comfortable.
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!
