I have included some photos of some of my favorite patterns below to temp you into subscribing. And here is a summary of what you will find in this issue:
Easy Being Greenery
The color of the year is a happy and vibrant shade of green. We challenged our designers to create patterns that feature this happy hue in new and exciting ways. Fill your home with greenery accents for a fresh take on summer.
Crochet like a master artist with these four inspired designs. Will you crochet Monet’s water lilies? Or will you pick up your hook and do a little Boogie Woogie? It’s up to you!
Feels Like Fall
Fall is around the corner and you’ll want to start preparing soon! With a bright and sunny color palette, these patterns will help ease you into the new season.
Headed somewhere fun this summer? You’ll want to have at least one of these designs with you! Lightweight styles and afghans perfect for a car ride, these patterns are adventurous and exciting. Take a trip with your crochet when you begin one of these designs.
Beat the Heat
It’s the middle of summer and crocheting in this weather can be quite the challenge! Five new patterns that you can wear on the hottest days of the year will inspire you to pick up your hook and crochet the summer days away.
Of Quartz We Love Geodes
Trend alert: Geodes! From home décor to jewelry, geodes are seemingly everywhere. These two patterns are crochet interpretations of this marvelous trend.

The Quick-Stitch Infinity Scarf is a pattern that you can stitch up in a hurry. It works up easily and quickly and can be made in any worsted-weight yarn. It makes a great gift. Make up a few to have on hand for ready-made gifts. You can find my Quick-Stitch Infinity Scarf pattern on Ravelry and Amazon.
I designed a new infinity scarf over the weekend!
The Apple Blossoms Infinity Scarf is reminiscent of spring and the beautiful apple blossoms coming into bloom. The semi-lacy pattern stitch allows this scarf to carry through the seasons – wear it long and lacey for warmer days, doubled up for colder days.
The Apple Blossoms Infinity Scarf takes about 250 yds/230m of worsted-weight yarn, so depending on your yarn choice, it could be made with just one skein of yarn.
Through the end of the day tomorrow, May 29th, you can get this pattern for free on Ravelry by using the coupon code APPLE BLOSSOM. After 11:59 EST May 29th the pattern will no longer be available for free, but it will still be available for purchase on Ravelry and Craftsy.
You can also find all my patterns available for purchase/download on Amazon.
