I love the pop of texture this braided cable knit stitch gives against the purl stitches. The alternating knit and purl stitches really create a beautiful design. The winding nature of these stitches reminds me of vines hence the name Sunny Vines Square!

Although I don’t celebrate the holidays, I love crocheting and knitting gifts for my friends who do celebrate. Every year, I say I am going to make conscious decisions to start my gift crocheting early, narrow down the recipients to a number I know I can handle, and not have any crafting stress around the holidays.

Every year I make a liar out of myself. But what do I want to do the second the last dish is put away and the last snack devoured for the day? Crochet something new JUST FOR ME!

I am apparently not alone in this sentiment, so I joined 40 of my crochet designer colleagues and created the Crochet for Me Bundle. It’s chock full of 56 individual patterns, never before offered in a bundle or for free, that will give you a wide range of patterns that will suit you from head to toe.

The Crochet for Me bundle has 56 patterns for the types of projects we all want to make for ourselves, designed by more than 40 of your very favorite designers – including me. It contains projects you’ll love, from head (ear warmers and hats) to toe (socks and slippers) with a few stops along the way (sweaters, shawls and even a skirt!). You get all 56 patterns PLUS a selection of more than 20  cool additional discounts for the low, low price of $27 – less than 50 cents a pattern.

The crochet for me bundle includes my latest pattern the Lookin’ Swell ear warmer. This pattern is for a knit-like beginner-friendly Tunisian crochet ear warmer in toddler, child, and adult sizes that can be completed in 1 hour. It’s the perfect ear warmer to practice the basic Tunisian knit stitch! A huge thank you to my testers: @mickylathemaker, @sarahsyarn, @made_with_love_by_steffi, @burst_of_creativiti, @miashimo

Baby Knitting Patterns – Silver Lining Bonnet

Looking for baby knitting patterns? Here is a luxurious baby bonnet knitting pattern perfect for a boy or girl! Check out this velvet Silver Lining Bonnet!

Baby knitting patterns are my favorite type of patterns as of late. Recently, while working with Lion Brand Vel-luxe yarn I decided to create something that is soft, luxurious, and perfect for babies. That’s when my head literally went into the clouds! The Silver Lining Bonnet comes from the inspiration of puffy clouds with a silver lining against a backdrop of velvety luxe yarn. Then you finish it off with a big pom and some cords with tassels to tie the bonnet! I am so happy with the way it looks, it is a sweet bonnet with a vintage style.
