Hello my friends!
I am so excited to be writing my very first new post on my brand new website today! I promised that there would be another free pattern before the end of 2022, and admittedly I am coming as close to the wire as possible. But, I am still delivering one last crochet pattern as we say goodbye to 2022!
Before we get into the pattern though, I would like to take a few minutes to say thank you. The past 4 years since Straight Hooked was launched have been so much fun. I have made friends from all over the world who also love crocheting as much as I do. I have been able to work with some big names in the crochet world, from designers to yarn companies. As my business has grown, I have been able to provide more and more free content for you! Thank you for visiting my little corner of the internet, reading my emails, interacting with me and supporting my work!
Now that I have this fancy new website, I am hopeful that the hiccups we’ve dealt with on that last platform will become distant memories and I will be able to put more time into creating new designs and even more free content for you in 2023!
So now onto the final pattern release of 2022: the Wild Violets Scarf. This scarf is fun to make and creates a gorgeous texture everyone will rave about!
I went on a huge designing-scarves-using-Ferris-Wheel kick this fall, and each of them will be available as Forever Free patterns here at Straight Hooked. Due to taking a bunch of time to work on getting my new site ready, I have a bit of a pattern backlog, which is great news for you! Anyway, you can find my other designs that use Ferris Wheel by clicking on the Ferris Wheel tag at the bottom of this post!
The Wild Violets Scarf pattern will be forever free to view on the Straight Hooked blog. If you prefer an ad-free experience, you can purchase the PDF here.
