Keeping it Simple

I always enjoy creating designs that beginning crocheters can tackle and my latest published designs are examples of this.

You can find my  “Seasonless Wrap”  in Issue #4 of Crochet 1-2-3 Magazine. This simple wrap is worked with Lion Brand Homespun in rows of V-stitches off a central/neck foundation. I love V-stitches for working with fuzzy or fluffy yarns like Homespun.

You can find my “Big Beads Necklace” in the Spring 2013 issue of Crochet! Magazine. The hardest part of working this pattern are how tiny the stitches are. But if you are comfortable working with Size #10 crochet thread you’ll have no trouble at all. You don’t really need to count the number of rounds worked, just keep going til you reach the length you want.  I found making the sample to be very meditative.

Even if you are an experienced crocheter, these are both fun “mindless” crochet projects for those days you just want to play with the hooks.

  1. The neckline on that top with the necklace you designed is very appealing – is it also one of your designs? I’d be interested in a pattern – if you can point me in the right direction 😀

    • So sorry, I only designed the necklace. The model’s clothing is generally provided by the art director from the magazine, maybe contact them and see if they can steer you in the right direction.

      • Thanks for getting back to me – I appreciate that you took the time and effort. I will ask the magazine people and cross my fingers lol
