The Classic Coffee Cardigan is finally here! I knew I wanted a long cardigan with bell sleeves, and I knew I wanted to use KnitPicks CotLin yarn courtesy of WeCrochet. My testers and tech editor did a phenomenal job of catching errors and helping me to publish an error-free pattern. True to my mission, this pattern is easy to follow and will leave you with a finished sweater that everyone will compliment! Free pattern for Ladies Medium size. Premium version includes ladies sizes S-XL
Hello my friends! This is the last month of the Friendship Blanket CAL, hosted by my friends at Sunflower Cottage Crochet, and my second square design is here on the blog for FREE! This square is much less complex than the Dolphin Stitch Square, but it sure does look pretty when completed.
My first square, The Dolphin Stitch Square, features my signature stitch. The Dolphin Stitch is my own innovation, and is so fun to work up and super versatile. You can use the Dolphin Stitch with any size yarn or hook, and it creates some amazing texture!
The Ice Cap Beanie uses my signature stitch, which I have dubbed the Dolphin Stitch because to me it looks like dolphins jumping out of the water. The Dolphin Stitch is super versatile and fun to work up. It also creates an amazing texture and can be used with any size yarn and hook.
I'm so overjoyed that I was asked to participate in the Hope in the Holidays CAL hosted and organized by my friend Claire at Bear Rye. I had so much fun designing my square and chatting with the other designers. I hope you have been able to make some new yarn friends during this Crochet-A-Long as well, because I have found that one of the greatest parts of staying home almost all year playing with yarn has been all of the new friendships I have made with people all over the world who speak the same language- crochet.
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!
This week I have rounded up a whole bunch of great FREE crochet patterns perfect for summer! From clothing and accessories to home décor, my friends and I have you covered. On top of that, my friend Susan at Fosbas Designs is hosting the Summer Vibes Blog Hop this month, where you can download a paid pattern for FREE every day this month, AND my Friend Pam is hosting the Hooked On Summer Pattern Giveaway where you can get FREE patterns every week! July is “Freedom Month” here in the United States, and we are all celebrating with a ton of amazing patterns! It's a genuine Free Pattern Palooza!
