New Pattern - Jackson Unisex Cap November 29, 2019 04:00
It begins at the center of the crown and is worked around and around in a spiral in single crochet. Then there is one round of increases to establish the front-post-double-crochet stitches. After that point the increases are done, and it's just simple stitching until the hat is your desired length.
This new crochet hat pattern will be available to my Patreon patrons tomorrow, and will be published publicly for everyone in just one more week.

New Crochet Pattern - Vines and Flowers Wrap May 30, 2016 06:00
Lattice-work, with traveling vines, graced with an edge of flowers, this wrap is simple, fun to make and oh-so-cozy to wear. The Vines and Flowers Wrap (or scarf) pattern is available in the June 2016 issue of I Like Crochet, along with my Rad in Red Tank pattern.
About the Pattern:
The center vine section is crocheted in rows as a rectangle in a simple chain and double-crochet pattern, then the flower border is worked in the round around the edge. The pattern is written in 2 sizes, so you can make a scarf or a wrap.
About the Yarn:
My sample is crocheted using Quince & Co.'s Piper yarn—a beautiful blend of mohair and merino, grown, spun and dyed in the USA. It's a super-soft lace-weight yarn that is super nice to crochet with. It has a gorgeous halo that really stands out in this wrap.

New Crochet Pattern & Giveaway - Savona May 3, 2016 02:51
Classic Elite Yarns has just published A Time for Crochet—a book full of crochet patterns. It includes my Savona pattern, crocheted using Classic Elite's Crestone yarn.
How it's Made:
The body of Savona is crocheted in the lace pattern as one piece from the bottom up to the underarms. Chain stitches are added for the left sleeve then the left front and sleeve are crocheted to the shoulder. Chain stitches are added for the right sleeve then the back, and back sleeves are worked to the shoulder. Then the right front and sleeve are worked to the shoulder. The back and front sleeves are joined with single crochet.
Then ribbing is worked along the lower edge, button bands, neckline and cuffs by working hdc-blo side-to-side and joining to the body as they are worked. It's a completely seamless crochet sweater!
A Time to Crochet
In addition to Savona, A Time to Crochet includes seven other patterns, including a poncho, scarf and fingerless mitts. Some of my favorites are Livorno, by Susan Mills—a striped raglan; Bergamo, by Charles Voth—an open cardigan with a lacy front edge; and Alessandria, by Robyn Chachula—a motif cardigan with an elegant split side seam detail.
