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).

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.
I had a lot of fun making this simple-but-gorgeous piece! This sweater is definitely one that will get people asking “where did you buy that?” quickly followed by “there’s no way you MADE that!” It’s an interesting silhouette, it was literally designed to look good with variegated yarn, and it’s also comfy! It was a no-brainer.

This pattern was very easy to follow. The fabric is comprised of simple double crochets and chains, and it’s a basic construction of two identical rectangles sewn together. This a great project for a confident beginner. It will be versatile top that I can see paired with jeans, shorts or over a maxi dress.
This pattern was very easy to follow. Don’t let the pattern scare you at all because it’s worked in just simple chains, single crochets and treble crochets. If you can work a double crochet, a treble crochet is just one extra yarn over in the beginning, and one extra yarn over and pull through in the end. It also mentions blocking, but it’s not necessary. I did not block my top, and the fit and stitch pattern is still great. All these things make this a great project for a confident beginner.

This pattern was very easy to follow, and I really like the added detail in the filet design. This top is worked in simple double crochet stitches and basic shaping so it’s definitely suitable for a confident beginner, and it’s reversible!
When I saw this gorgeous little cable collar on Ravelry, meant to go under your coat and basically add a warm turtleneck “sweater” (top half) layer without adding the thick bulk of the full thing, I was intrigued. Most of my wardrobe is basic V-neck tees from Target, and I’d love something to cover my chest below my coat! This pattern is the perfect combination. It’s gorgeous, it’s interesting and stitches up relatively quickly, and it’s incredibly warm and comfortable!
As I was going through my yarn stash last week, I pulled out all of the Touch of Alpaca I had, and decided to put together this fun collection of 20 free crochet patterns that used Touch of Alpaca, and run a yarn giveaway.
