Grand Canyon Shawl

grand canyon shawl

I adore shawls!

With this pattern, I kind of worked backwards in my design. First I picked the yarn. This pattern uses the Lion Brand Heartland yarn. This is the first time I’ve ever worked with this and I tell you what…I don’t think I’ve ever felt a softer yarn. Hands down. And I’m not an affiliate for Lion Brand.

Light & Lacy Poncho

Well hey there!

I called this week’s pattern the Light & Lacy Poncho because I crocheted it using baby weight yarn! Bernat Softee Baby, to be exact and I tell you what—I’m so glad I did!

If you want a light weight garment that is airy and soft, yet can keep you warm during a sudden Autumn breeze, then this is the poncho for you! Read more

Angled Clusters Scarf

I have to laugh since I just finished crocheting this Angled Clusters Scarf and the temperature today is in the upper 70’s! Last week we were cozy in our sweaters or hoodies, which prompted me to choose this project.

It just goes to show how unpredictable Pennsylvania weather can be.

That’s also one of the reasons that I don’t pack away my families clothes based on the season. I’ve heard that people from other places and climates do that, but honestly, it would be a waste of time for us. We need a variety of clothing categories year round.

Linen Chunky Cowl

Hey everyone!

I’ve been seeing these super chunky cowls since last year (I may be late to the party…lol) and I’ve been wanting to make my own.

That’s one of the things I love about being able to crochet. I can recreate trendy, beautiful items without spending a fortune at a boutique!

Cranberry Chill Wrap

Well hello there!

Today, I’d like to share a new pattern with you…

The Cranberry Chill Wrap!

This wrap is so stinkin’ easy and beginner friendly. It’s basically a giant rectangle.

The most difficult part is the cluster stitch and I’ve created a great little photo tutorial just to make it even easier! You can find that tutorial here.

Rag Quilt Baby Hats and Booties

Hello Everyone!

I’m so excited to give you the patterns for the hats and booties that match the Rag Quilt Style Baby Blanket! There are three size options available for both the hats and the booties. Perfect for a growing baby!

These patterns are easy and work up seriously fast, which is great if you’re looking for something to give as a gift short notice or you just don’t have a ton of time to spend crocheting.

I’ve also included two trim options. If you feel like the ruffle is too feminine, simple single crochets can replace it. I showed the results in the grey version.

Boho Braided Bucket Bag

Boho Braided Bucket Bag

Hi all!

I hope your day is going great. I’m here today to give you another free pattern! And I think I picked the cutest little design for a purse, handbag, pocketbook, suitcase…whatever it is you call it!

Since it’s the middle of summer here, I knew that I wanted to make a bag that I could just throw a few things into and run out the door. When you’re a mother of three little boys, that’s about the best I can do. Everywhere we go is rush, rush, rush and half the time I forget some of the things I was supposed to bring.

Hey everyone!

I could not be more happy with how this Cappuccino Triangle Shawl turned out! This was the first time that I had ever tried the Red Heart Boutique Unforgettable line of yarn and I tell you what…It’s awesome! It is incredibly soft and the natural color changes throughout the skeins make for a beautiful work of art.

Mimi's Ear Warmer Headband

My boys call my mom Mimi and even though I had never heard that name when I was a child, it seems to be quite popular for a grandmother’s name. I believe it started out as “Grammy”, but one of my twins changed it when he couldn’t say Grammy.

Mimi tries to make it to the boys sporting events and we’ve faced a wide variety of weather conditions here in PA while supporting the kids.
