These are my favorite colors! Blues and greens like the Caribbean ocean. I found this Madeline Tosh merino light yarn and ended up using three skeins (1260 yds) for this scarf. It’s in an iris stitch and I used a 2.75mm hook. After blocking it I have to say that it’s got a wonderful drape... Continue Reading →
Last night I finally finished making this wonderful scarf out of Gedifra metal tweed yarn from Italy that I purchased at Yarn and Y’all in Greenville SC. The colors are caramel, coffee, and graphite. I used a mini been stitch and a size F crochet hook. I am really looking forward to wearing it this... Continue Reading →
This is a crocheted scarf using the Suzette stitch and Dulce yarn by Berroco. It’s incredibly soft and I’d definitely use this yarn again. You can really see the stitch pattern when you hold it up to the light.

For these beanies I used Michael’s Impeccable acrylic yarns. I usually never use acrylic but these may be getting some heavy use and need to be tossed in the wash 🙂 this is a free pattern that uses half double crochet and mini bean stitching. It’s available at christacodesign.com.
I just finished this knit-look super bulky slouch but I think it looks more just like a hat. The pattern by Jennifer Renaud was really interesting because of the way the rows increased and decreased. I used two skeins of Mamacha Peruvian alpaca wool blend that is super soft! I also used a 9 mm... Continue Reading →
I have 7 skeins of Noro silk garden and started thinking I’ll make a poncho! It’s turning out nicely but I’m going to have to get more yarn and figure out more things as I go along. I’m using a linen stitch and so far I like how it’s going! Stay tuned…
This is my first top down crocheted sweater and I think it turned out great. I slightly adjusted the pattern and used a plain HDC stitch instead of the one called for. You can find the pattern and yarns here.
