Hearts Aligned Necklace

My Hearts Aligned Necklace pattern is available for free on the Lion Brand website in plenty of time for Valentine’s Day.  This design was made with Vanna’s Glamour. It’s a really quick and easy project that you could make in any number of colors.  The necklace is long enough to be worn multiple ways– in the same way that you might wear a scarf. It can be doubled or wrapped just as you might a scarf. Visit the Lion Brand website to get the free pattern. You should check out all their other free patterns while you are at it:-)




Picot Boo Shawl and Diamond Play Wrap – Crochet World Feb ’14 Issue

I have two designs in the February ’14 issue of Crochet World.  The digital issue is available now and the print edition will go on sale December 31.

My Picot Boo Shawl is an easy-to-make, yet very pretty, triangular-shaped shawl that is given its name by the picots “peeking” out from between the granny-style stitches.  I’m a fan of the Red Heart Boutique Unforgettable yarn I made the Picot Boo Shawl in.  Boutique Unforgettable is an acrylic roving yarn with a beautiful, self-striping pattern. And I just love the color choices!

My Diamond Play wrap, made in Lion Brand Vanna’s Choice,  is made up of mini granny squares assembled to create diamond-motifs.   As Crochet World states, “A few not-so-randomly placed grannies generate a few surprises!”

You can get these patterns, along with all of the other patterns you will find in the February issue of Crochet World by buying the digital issue, available now!

Holly Berry Cowl

I’ve been so busy this fall that I haven’t had any much time for extra-curricular crafting for the holiday season.  But soon my time should free up a bit and I hope to get back into the crafting mode.

In the meantime, here’s my latest published design, the Holly Berry Cowl.  You can find the pattern for this design in the Love of Crochet Winter 2013 issue.  Made in Lion Brand Tweed Stripes yarn, it’s a quick and pretty project to whip up and would make a great holiday gift!
