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!

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.
I briefly considered whether it might be possible for a sweater to be too bright, and then I realized I didn’t care about the answer and put this yarn into my cart. The result was so totally worth it. This pattern was fun, it’s well-written and easy to understand, and it looks so cool!
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.
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 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.
