This hoodie is a very nice spring and summer piece. The concept of a short-sleeved hooded layer can come off a little weird if it’s not done well, but the silhouette of this one pulls it off perfectly. It looks casual and chic and comfortable, and I knew I had to have one. This piece has a very simple construction and I appreciate that. This construction lets you make it to fit your own size and shape, and allows for customization in both length and width so it will fit just the way you want depending on your personal style!

This crochet pattern is one I would very strongly recommend. It was easy to make, it doesn’t use too much yarn so it’s affordable, and it gives you a very useful and super cute accessory at the end. I plan to use this adorable little bag a lot this coming summer! It’s not huge so it won’t weigh you down, but it has the space for the basics like a wallet and phone.
This pattern is just plain old fun. There’s plenty of shaping, the stitch is enjoyable to work up, and the sleeves are so interesting to make! It’s beautiful, comfortable, flirty and flattering, and I strongly recommend you make one for yourself or your girlfriends for the summer.
This crochet pattern met all my expectations. It was simple enough to make but held my interest, it looks more complicated than it ended up being, and it gives a beautiful but laid-back look to pretty much any warm-weather outfit.
This pattern is wonderfully simple! Most of the stitching is a basic rectangle with a little bit of shaping for the neck and sleeves. Then you just sew the pieces together and enjoy it! If someone is looking to get into garments and wants to try a relatively simple one, I highly recommend this one. It’s not always easy, and of course there’s some frogging involved to get your fit just right sometimes, but it would be a great choice for an approachable garment pattern.
The pattern was very easy to follow, and with the repetitive nature and easy stitch pattern, it’s perfect for an on-the-go project, or binge watching Netflix. Also plenty suitable for a confident beginner to tackle.
Overall, I’m quite pleased with my new Country Grace Pullover. It was an easy crochet pattern to follow worked in a stitch pattern similar to the classic granny stitch, and easy to adjust to fit just the way I wanted. This is an excellent Spring and Summer top, though living in Florida, I will enjoy it all year long.
My overall thoughts on this pattern are pure joy. It was fun to work up, easy to understand, and very simple to modify to my gauge and my body. The tie idea is creative and definitely something I’ve seen in store-bought tops, but I never would have considered emulating that in crochet! DK yarn was a great choice, and this top feels like a cloud. I am going to rock this thing with some cute summer outfits!
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).
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!
