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!

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.
My overall feelings on this pattern are so very positive. It was simple to understand, fun to make, and so lovely to wear! The shape is gorgeous and the stitches add a fun visual pop. Plus I got to try a new stitch and get plenty of practice on it to get better! I would recommend this pattern for sure if you’re comfortable with puff stitches and/or post stitches. Go make one of these in every color!
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.
Because of the unpredictable temperatures, crochet toppers, like this shrug, have come in so handy this spring and early summer. I can wear a light summery outfit, but throw on a topper for the chilly parts of my day! This shrug pattern has been no exception, and the versatility is impressive.
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.
