Free Knitting Pattern: Brioche Cable Cowl

I just happened to be browsing around some of my crafty Facebook groups and stumbled on to this beauty! Just look at that gorgeous cowl!

The pattern is by Vanessa Ewing, and the photos and pattern is from Plymouth Yarn Company. This yarn is perfect for this project! The link I found on Facebook sent me to Ravelry. It didn’t say what level of knitting this is for, but it did say that the cowl was worked in the round. I LOVE knit it the round projects because I loathe the purl stitch.

Even if this pattern wasn’t worked in the round I would still make it. Just look at this side view!

Free Basket Crochet Pattern

I found the PERFECT thing to make to keep my kids’ DS games in! I admin a group on Facebook with a few other lovely ladies called No Negativity Crochet. One of our amazing members posted this from Just Be Crafty’s blog!

I just have to post two patterns this time! I finished a virus shawl recently for a church I volunteer at. They make hats, gloves, and prayer shawls to anyone in need. Anywhooo, I found this FREE written pattern and just adored it!

Sorry everyone…

Sorry I haven’t been able to update lately. It’s no excuse, but between having sick kids, selling Girl Scout Cookies door to door and at booths, and Statistics this term I haven’t had much time to update. So I’m afraid I am going to have to cut back my posts to once a week. I will post more often if I can. I would really like to, so we’ll see how this goes.

 

On a lighter note, I recently got an electric yarn ball winder and couldn’t be happier! I knew I wanted an electric one because I have the beginning stages of carpal tunnel. The hand crank one would cause me too much pain (although I REALLY wanted one!). I happened to have a 50% off coupon at Michael’s and used it on the Boye electric yarn ball winder. I think it was around $40 with the coupon. I personally wanted the hand crank one from KnitPicks (I think that’s how it’s spelled) as I’ve heard from several in one of my crafty groups on Facebook that it is AH-MAZE-ING! Ah well, a girl can dream can’t she?

 

Anyhoo…. I would love to hear your opinions on the yarn ball winders you have or have had! I LOOOOOOVE a great review! Knowledge is power! 😀

My apologies

I am very sorry for missing the last few days. Something drastic happened and I was unable to post any patterns. My eldest daughter was punched in the head by some girl on the bus. I spent several days going to the hospital, getting tests done, getting check ups, and meeting with school personnel. I will post more patterns very shortly. Thank you for your understanding.

Daily Crochet Pattern~February 23, 2016

Here is my first crochet pattern post. Not just for the day, but the first one ever! I fell in love with this pattern as soon as I saw the finished result. It is nothing short of adorable! I will tell you beforehand that it is a paid pattern. The pattern is of a crocheted Cupcake Doll! Just look at this little lady…

The pattern is by Heather Boyer and can be bought from her on Ravelry, Craftsy, or Etsy. I prefer Ravelry as some of the most creative minds I’ve ever seen congregate there. If you would like to purchase her pattern you can do so by clicking HERE. I must say that the pattern is VERY well written and tested. I plan on making some for my daughters and nieces. It’s the perfect gift!
