Rockskipper Cowl-A Free Pattern

I seriously love the stitch that was used in my Rockskipper Bag, so I decided I wanted to do something more with it! Introducing the Rockskipper Cowl! This cowl has the same lacy stitch used in the Rockskipper bag but is worked in a light worsted yarn making it have very nice drape and be perfect for fall! It is such a quick work up and only requires 115 yards of yarn that you can probably work up several in a day with the same skein of yarn!  Continue reading Rockskipper Cowl-A Free Pattern

Caution to the Wind Scarf-A Free Pattern

The Caution to the Wind scarf is a simple yet striking patterned scarf. The chevrons or arrows within the scarf reminded one of my testers of the caution arrowhead road signs. We played around with words and then this name came to me! I love this scarf and how easy it is to work up and memorize once you get going. Use a cotton yarn on this for the perfect spring or summer scarf that won’t cause you to sweat or make it with a light worsted weight acrylic yarn for a scarf that is still breathable but with give you some warmth in the cooler temperatures of fall or winter!

Happy Little Elephant Applique-A Free Pattern

This Happy Little Elephant Applique came about on request from my son. His old sunhat was getting too little for him and he wanted a new one. His request: A blue sunhat with a red elephant! For 2.5 years old, the kid sure does know what he wants! So I sketched how I wanted the elephant to look, we went to Hobby Lobby to pick out his colors of cotton, and he helped me pick out a stitch for his hat.

There was a time when my son absolutely hated wearing anything on his head. He would immediately yank any hat off his head within seconds of me putting it on him. Luckily, that time has passed and he now loves to wear hats. He has several that he will switch between for cooler weather, but he only had one sunhat. Being blonde, he has to wear something on his head or it will get burnt, especially with the amount of time he makes us spend at the park! Sadly, his super awesome snail sunhat that I made him last year was running a little small, so I asked him if he wanted a new one. Continue reading Aidan’s Sunhat Pattern Release!
