Sunflower Cottage Crochet
We are Sara and Helen of Sunflower Cottage Crochet. We started our crochet business with the idea that we wanted to create beautiful, trendy, and functional crochet items for people. I started creating patterns and videos on how to crochet. As business partners, we through a mutual friend where we both tested patterns together and we decided we make a great team and wanted to do this business thing together!
We write blog posts and patterns and create tutorials together, brainstorm together, and are building a community for people that want to learn to crochet or already know how to crochet and love our patterns. Make sure to stop by our blog and subscribe to stay up to date with our latest happenings. Be sure to follow us on Facebook, Instagram, and Ravelry.
Did you know that this is the second crochet stocking pattern that we have? Last year we released the Robin Stocking as part of our Robin Richard Christmas Collection. The collection also features a gingham look afghan and a gorgeous tree skirt! You really should check these patterns out.
I love our crochet stocking patterns. They have a modern twist on a very classical look. The style of the stocking is quite traditional. But the stitches and stitch combo we use are most definitely not! I have made almost all of my stockings in Caron Simply Soft. For me this yarn in autumn red and cream just works up fabulously and is perfect for our Fireside Cottage Stocking.
