The Changeover Cardi is a fun and easy garment that is great for beginner crocheters. Lately, I have been focusing on creating patterns that incorporate basic stitches. This cardigan is crocheted entirely with the half double crochet and single crochet stitch. Easy, right? [Read more…]
I am so pleased with how this Bellevue Cardigan turned out! Sometimes you have a vision in your head of what you want to create, and it’s always exciting when it actually comes to life.
My vision was to make an over sized and roomy cardigan that will keep you warm and toasty through the winter months.

And hopefully you will too! [Read more…]
Ever since I created the pattern for my Cozy Cocoon Cardigan, I have been even more intrigued with similar cardigan patterns and their construction. Like I have mentioned before, I don’t like difficult patterns! Crocheting is something I do to escape stress in my life! If I am crocheting a pattern and it is frustrating me, then I’m not having fun! Crocheting should be fun, right? [Read more…]
So for awhile now I have been wanting to crochet a pattern for an easy and functional cardigan. A lot of the patterns I have been seeing consist of crocheting a number of pieces and then sewing them together. I knew I didn’t want my creation to be that involved.
