Christmas Countdown – Knit Cowl

The Step Up Chunky Cowl is a knitting pattern that speaks to my heart. I love using bulky yarn and this pattern uses two strands of bulky yarn. The Step Up Chunky Cowl works up super quick and would make a great last-minute gift.

Christmas Countdown – Easy Crochet Beanie

Each of my designs is named after a city or town I have visited – either recently or long ago. Whether a specific memory of color, architecture or perhaps the smell of fresh pastries, something about these places fills my mind as I stitch up a new design. Meet Treviso – the faux knit beanie!

Christmas Countdown – Free Crochet Beanie

I had this design playing around in my head for a while and finally decided to make it! I am relaxing with this pattern I crochet looser than most and found out that gauge is very important for patterns! From all my pattern testing I have intertwined different techniques from other designers and new stitches that I have learned or love seeing on a hat!

Christmas Countdown – DIY Angel Ornaments

Plastic Canvas projects are often the first time kids get the opportunity to work with yarn as a crafting material.  Today’s featured pattern is a great beginner project and it’s a fantastic craft decorate with as an ornament to your Christmas Tree or to tie around a Christmas Gift.

Christmas Countdown – Oh, Bobble Tree Ornament

I designed this adorable Oh, Bobble Tree Ornament for you as a spin-off of my most popular design this season, the Bibbledy Bobbledy Christmas Trees. I wanted to create something that worked up very fast, that could be made as a last-minute gift for teachers and hostesses, and that would be easy to make on repeat while binge-watching Disney+.
