I just love the look of sampler stitch projects, and have been dreaming up ways to create my own. I’ve combined 6 fun stitch patterns together to create this 12″ afghan square full of lovely textures.

I love the simplicity of popping a cute vest over a solid-color shirt and then it feels like a whole new outfit! This is why I was drawn to the simple but beautiful Tolosa Vest. I fell in love with the picture and when I saw it was designed by Lena Skvagerson, I knew it would also be a well-written pattern to make it even better! And in this case, I was right – it was an enjoyable and easy pattern that gave me a comfy and adorable winter accessory.
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.
