Zeron Pullover September 23, 2020 07:56

I've been crocheting for what seems like my whole life. My mom taught me when I was very young, and my love of it snowballed (avalanched?) from there. But, it wasn't until recently that I discovered the joy (and obsession) of crochet cables.

Drifter - New Pattern! September 3, 2020 03:10

Simple Stockinette stitch is so often underappreciated. I've waxed and waned with my attraction to it throughout my knitting experience. At the moment, with all that's going on in the world (2020 OMG!), I'm thoroughly appreciating the repetitive, simplicity of Stockinette. There are no surprises—it's always the same, and easy.

Summer Cast-on Magazine & the Mazar Pullover May 6, 2020 16:22

Something I love about hand-dyed yarn is that the beautiful and unique colors can make a basic stockinette sweater into a piece of art.

Sometimes a sweater may appear so simple and basic once it's completed, but the process of making it can be quite an interesting experience. I feel like the Sati Cardigan is one of those sweaters.
