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 pattern is a great choice if you’re looking to try your first sweater and you want a pattern that really walks you through things! I love how this came out in a striping yarn and want to see it in something even more colorful, but at the same time I also want one in a nice soft silver or pale green. The options are endless!
Just like all of Sigoni Macaroni’s awesome patterns, the Bumble Bee and Beehive pattern is really beginner friendly! This adorable toy set works up quickly and will provide kiddos of all ages with hours and hours of fun, imaginative play! These also make great sets to sell at markets!
It’s beanie weather! Frigid temperatures are hitting everywhere this winter and cozy caps are more essential than ever! I chose this textured beauty of a beanie for a Christmas present and it did not disappoint. It looks intricate and has a lovely detail to it but it is so effortless to make! It works up quickly and easily while maintaining the look of an elaborate design.
The long stocking cap pattern was very easy and an excellent beginner pattern. The designer included several helpful hints such as links to videos that explain different stitches and techniques, tips from her own experience, a hat size chart and it includes the option (and pattern) to create elf ears on your hat! I am really pleased with this hat and the ease of the pattern.
I just love when Annie’s Signature Designs releases their new crochet and knit patterns each season! I’m always looking forward to seeing what Apparel and Home designs will be included! I’m sharing my 10 Favorites from the Fall 2022 Collection.
This poncho just sang to me from the moment I spotted it. It’s cabled, looks (and is) super cozy, and it just radiates Fall vibes. The pattern is not as scary as it looks either. It’s based on a 6 row repeat throughout, and a great practice project to get comfort with cables as long as you’re comfortable with post stitching.
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!
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.
