Did you know that crochet patterns can be written in more than one way? Some designers use text to create their designs – others use crochet symbol charts or diagrams. I use both! Reading a crochet symbol chart might be intimidating or confusing, but really it’s a whole lot simpler than it looks. Graphs can show you where your stitches go, how tall they are, even what the look like. My friend Courtney is back to walk us through reading a crochet symbol chart using two of my free patterns – the Spring Flowers Blanket and the flower motif from my Spring Headband & Belt. When you’re done watching the video, drop me a comment letting me know which you prefer – written text or symbol graphs!
I’m so honored that Furls thought of me for this month’s Amigurumi CAL! Because I love making animals – and Easter is right around the corner – I created a design that I think is fun, simple, and adorable. Meet Denis the Easter Bunny!!
The Furls Amigurumi CAL will be divided into 3 weeks. The first week we will gather the supplies to make our amigurumi, and there will be an amazing giveaway.
It’s March!! That means Spring is right around the corner. I’m excited, are you? I’m also excited to announce the new CAL for this month. Meet Dan the Dino Cuddler! He’s the sweetest and softest little dinosaur around, and he would love to snuggle with you!
Open shut, open shut. That’s the way we cut, cut, cut!! Here’s my newest FREE pattern – the Scissors Applique. I created this little design years ago as a gift for my very first newsletter subscribers. Now I want to share it with everyone!! You can use any color you prefer to customize your scissors!
Grab your hooks and get ready to go on an ocean adventure!!! I’m so thrilled to introduce my newest pattern – the Sealife Blanket! This design incorporates the simplicity of a ripple blanket with 11 customizable appliques.
You will find whales, dolphins, fishes, octopus, crab, starfish, conchs, shark and a yellow submarine 😉
I would appreciate it if you would please show my Sealife Blanket some love on Ravelry. And please drop a comment to let me know what you think!
Last September I released my second book – the Snuggle and Play Crochet book. Have you seen it? It’s a wonderful book filled with 40 brand new patterns!

None of these patterns are available in my online shops – they are all unique to this book. From bears and bunnies, dogs and cats, boys and girls – there’s truly something for everyone in this book!
