What a beautiful range of projects we’ve got here! Beginning yarn crafters and advanced alike can take advantage of this crop of free patterns & tutorials, which is not always something I can say each week!
TGIF, friends! I am looking forward to fitting in as much knitting as I can between parties this Halloween weekend.
There’s a new knitting show in town, and everyone can watch it free on YouTube! The Knit Show with Vickie Howell is a Kickstarter-funded, studio quality craft show all about knitting and crochet. I was lucky enough to design a custom knit hat pattern especially for beginners for the show’s second-ever episode!
It is clear from the blogosphere that no 2017 home is complete without tassels and macrame. Whether it’s a room divider, planter, throw pillow, or a simple bookmark, there’s no excuse not to give it a try!
Every fall, I like to share a free pattern for red baby hats designed specifically for the American Heart Association’s annual Little Hats Big Hearts campaign. The AHA, along with tons of volunteers and partners around the country, distributes red hats to newborns born in the month of February.
I think with Sunday marking the start of October, all of the bloggers rounded up to Halloween and were like, “Stop! It’s pumpkin time!”
The hugely popular pom pom trend shows no sign of slowing! Pom poms, tassels, yarn-adorned wall hangings, and latch hooking will continue to fill Pinterest and our blog feeds for many more months to come.
Who doesn’t love a good single skein knitting pattern? This checked scarf with bands of garter stitch at even intervals is both textural and masculine. A chain edge and knit and purl motifs really add a nice polish to this simple pattern.
Neutrals were out in force this week! I’m much more of a bold-colors-in-your-face kind of gal, but I know a lot of knitters and crocheters are all about neutrals, which I can totally respect.
