This week though, I am so excited to introduce you to my friend Angela from SASS! We met through the Crochetpreneur Business Academy and have been encouraging one another for over a year as we grow our businesses. I was totally shocked when she mentioned her grandbaby one day, because she so does not look old enough for grandkids! (I honestly thought she was younger than me for months into our friendship)
Angie is one of the sweetest, talented and funny hookers I know, and I am sure you will love getting to know her as much as I have!
The great thing about this cold snap is that it is finally getting a fall-vibe around here. I lit my Pumpkin Woods scented candle this morning and am thinking of making a nice butternut squash later this evening. You know what else is great about fall? All of the cute fashions you can make using only yarn and hooks! I have gathered up a whole bunch of fabulous fall fashion crochet patterns to share with you this month. In fact, there are so many I want to share with you that this is going to be at least 2 parts long, so make sure you bookmark this site or subscribe to my newsletter so you won't miss out!
Every day this month, you can snag a free PDF of a great fall fashion pattern from one of my talented designer friends! Which pattern can you get from me, you may wonder? How about the Spring Breeze (no-fall) Shawl?! Yes, I designed this one in the spring when we still had snow on the ground, but it will be just as cozy this fall, and the best part is that I designed it with sleeves so if it slips off of your shoulders, it won't hit the ground! The pattern features the Dolphin Stitch, which I am the proud inventor of. If you haven't yet tried my Dolphin Stitch, you are gonna love the texture and the speed of which it works up.
Guess what- its another Free Pattern Friday! This month has flown by (which is crazy since July was 6 years long), and I've still managed to put out three patterns. How this happened I am not quite sure, but it did. Earlier in the month, the Friendship Prayer Shawl was published, and last week I released the Kenzie Blanket which has quickly become my most popular pattern to date! To finish off this awesome month, I have decided to treat you to a freebie- the Berry Fun Beret. I had so much fun designing this one, and I am sure you will have fun making it!
When I finished designing the original Kenzie Blanket (the preemie size), I was astounded at how tiny it is. And this little blanket would have been more than large enough for her mom to swaddle her in. The blanket itself is 22"x24", which is just a little bit bigger than lovey-sized. Kenzie's story is nothing short of a miracle, and there are so many more wonderful stories of preemie babies. This one just happens to be the closest to my heart.
