I LOVE the Herringbone Double Crochet stitch and I love sport weight yarn, so I combined the two to create this fun baby blanket! The pattern is FREE below or you can purchase the pdf for $1 on Ravelry.

I used Knit Picks Brava Sport for this pattern and it worked up beautifully! Brava Sport is one of my favorite yarns to work with because it is soft, sturdy, and very affordable at just $1.99/skein!

The Siesta Sweater is my new favorite design! This design has been an idea I’ve had on the back burner since last winter and I finally was able to complete it! I wanted something simple, but something that looked intricate! I also wanted something great for fall or spring as the weather was changing! It turned out just as beautiful as I had hoped! The Siesta Sweater is made with Knit Picks Brava Sport and comes with instructions for women’s sizes XS through 2X!

Celtic Weave Crochet Stitch- Left Handed Video Tutorial

The Celtic Weave crochet stitch is one of my favorite stitches to use in my projects! I currently have three patterns published that use the Celtic Weave stitch! This stitch is what I would consider an intermediate crochet stitch. Although once you get the hang of it, it becomes quite easy. I’ve created a video tutorial to show you how to do the Celtic Weave stitch if you are left-handed. If you are working my Celtic Weave Pillow Cover pattern, my Celtic Weave Kitchen Set pattern, or the Celtic Weave Mini Slouch crochet pattern, this tutorial should be very helpful! 

The Celtic Weave Stitch Video Tutorial is made for left handed crocheters, but it can also be helpful for right-handed crocheters. The concept is the same, right-handed crocheters will just be working from right to left, instead of left to right. 

You can find the full video tutorial on my YouTube channel HERE

 

 

 

 

 

 

Flowers & Showers Blanket Crochet Pattern

Flowers & Showers Blanket

 

I’m on a blanket kick as of late and I’m loving making blankets out of some of my popular stitch patterns! My first blanket design from a previous pattern is the Flowers & Showers Blanket! I used the brand new Caron Cakes that are all the rave right now, and it turned out just perfect!

This blanket pattern comes with instructions for a baby blanket, but also has a chart with stitch counts for every size up to a King size blanket! So I’ve already done half the work for you! The Caron Cakes are fun to work with, but this blanket can be made with any worsted weight yarn! It’s a fun stitch pattern that works up quickly. Great for a baby shower or Christmas gift!

Katie Cardi Crochet Pattern Update!

 

I released the Katie Cardi crochet pattern in July of this year and it was a huge hit! In fact, it was my best seller to date opening week! Everyone really liked it! And it’s easy to see why! It’s so versatile! You can make it a short cropped cardi or a long cardi, like pictured above. You can make it short sleeved, 3/4 sleeved, or even long sleeved! The original pattern included instructions for Women’s XS to 2x. As soon as it was released I started getting requests for plus sizes and kid’s sizes. So I went to work on it!

I am excited to announce that the original adult size pattern now goes to size 3x! And I’ve also released a Kid’s Katie Cardi!

Katie Cardi Set

The Kid’s Katie Cardi pattern includes instructions for children’s XS through XL! The Katie Cardi’s are very simple to make. An advanced beginner could easily work this up. It’s made with dk weight yarn. I used Baby Bee Sweet Delight for both of mine. The best part about the work up of the cardi is that there is just a tiny bit of sewing at the shoulders and that’s it!
