Santa Giftcard Holder-A Free Patten

I know that when it comes to gifts, some people are just so hard to buy for! Gift cards are definitely the easiest option if you ever get stumped. This Santa Gift Card Holder is a great way to spice up the gift of a gift card (those plain envelopes that they come with aren’t so festive)! They are super quick to work up and do not use a lot of yarn at all, making them perfect for scrap yarn in your stash! Stick with a red for the main color to keep the Santa theme, or switch to a green for an Elf version! There is also an option to make this into an ornament to hang on the tree-great for little notes to Santa from the kids! These also fit $1 scratch offs really well too!!

Crochet Charity Drive-Dancing Aspen Scarf

A few months ago I was approached by Sonya of Blackstone Designs to see if I would be interested in contributing to her Charity Drive. The theme for this one was SCARVES! I will admit that I don’t wear scarves that often, but I do enjoy making them, so I was really excited to be a part of this! The Dancing Aspen Scarf is a super simple scarf made with a few fun stitches that provide solid and lacy sections throughout. The pattern is written in a way that you can stop at whatever length you prefer whether it be shorter to be made into a cowl/infinity or longer to be wrapped! I made mine about 6 feet long!! I hope that you enjoy this scarf and are able to donate it to someone who needs it this winter season ❤

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

Caution Collage

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!
