This is a very simple pattern, in terms of stitching. Once you get the hang of the mesh stitch, it’s smooth and just flies off the hook! The genius of this pattern is in the actual layout. She does a really cool technique in shaping the shoulders, rather than simply decreasing for the neckline and leaving the sides boxy (which is also a look that I love and do in many of my own designs).

Teri Eggenberger from Good Egg Knits published an Ice Cream Cozy pattern that is not only super fast and easy to make, but it uses both acrylic and cotton yarn to make the absolute perfect ice cream cozy. When I tested the finished product out, not only did it fit perfectly, but the acrylic was soft on my hands while the cotton absorbed all the frost from the container without soaking through.
This is a free crochet pattern for how-to crochet my Amaze Me Mosaic Soap Cozy (or Small Gift Bag).
This pattern is very simple and I really enjoyed it! The back-loop stitches add some interest without losing the sturdiness of single crochet. Simple color-blocking adds even more visual pop. My mind is full of all the potential for this pattern, especially given how quickly it works up. You could make one the night before going on a trip, if you realize you don’t have a bag for your makeup essentials. Or can you imagine how cute this would be as a gift for a friend?
I really enjoyed all the small touches on this pattern. This is definitely a bag that no one else on the street is going to have! I can’t stop singing the praises of this pattern. It was fun, it was simple to understand, and it gave me a sturdy and adorable bag that I will be proudly carrying around all summer!
This top is pretty darn cute, and great for a Summer afternoon hanging out at home. The pattern is very in-depth on measurements, and describes how to get the best custom size possible.
Summer is approaching, which means it’s time to stash-bust our cotton yarn! This pattern was fun, simple, interesting, and a joy from start to finish. I recommend it wholeheartedly and you should go check it out right away!
I love that this pillow is adorable, has texture to it but it is still totally functional! Plus, it can be made in different variations and styles.
