Rustic Retreat

Adore cuddling up with a latte? Or perhaps transitioning your home from bright summer tones to more neutral, autumnal tones? These five patterns range from slipper socks to a bobble pillow, and all remind us that fall is a time to relax, unwind and enjoy the crisp morning air.8a4.jpg

Mum’s the Word

Make a grand entrance into fall with new designs inspired by autumn’s favorite flowers! A stunning afghan set will warm your sitting room while a trendy sweater will keep you toasty during a nature hike. Whether you crochet one of these patterns for yourself or for a friend, you won’t want to keep these new designs quiet!Suncrisp-Appleghan-Logos-01a.jpg

Fall into Winter

Love walks on cool, crisp days? Good, because winter is on the way and the days are going to get chillier! The solution to the cold is new designs to add to your closet. With several hats to choose from and a cardigan you’ll want to wear every day, these patterns will carry you well into the winter season.7a4

Easter Sweets
One of the best things about Easter is all of the yummy and sugary candy that comes along with the season. Inspired by the pretty pastel colors of jelly beans and chocolate eggs, these patterns will make your Easter extra sweet this year.

Make it for Mom
Mom deserves something special on a day dedicated to her. Crochet something small or something big – and she’ll be grateful for the extra thought behind her gift. Moms are great and Mother’s day is the perfect excuse to shower her with love. Take your pick from this special collection and celebrate mom.

Fairy Tale Shawls
Once upon a time we were little girls dreaming of fairies and princesses on adventures. We will always cherish these dreams and we wanted to create a collection of shawls inspired by our memories of magical lands. These elegant shawls are paired with fancy gowns and are perfect for going to your very own special events. Just be sure to be home by midnight!

Crochet Classics
What happens when you ask your designers to look to the past for inspiration? Incredible things! This collection of Crochet Classics spans decades of vintage styles and motifs to create new designs with that coveted “new vintage” look.

Birds of a Feather
Springtime means the birds are back and singing sweetly in the morning. While flowers are popular motifs to crochet, we set out to let birds share some of the spotlight this spring. From feathers to bluebirds, get ready to crochet to the tune of birds.

Holiday Ornaments Ripple Afghan

I just came across another crochet design of mine that I had nearly forgotten about.  Here is my Holiday Ornaments Ripple Afghan that I designed for Herrschners using their 2-ply afghan yarn.  This was designed as part of their Ripple of the Month series and they are now making it available as a kit, probably just for a limited time.
