Another year down! This marks my third year of crocheting since I started in late 2015, and going back to my previous designs, it feels humbling to see how far my skill level has come. I still have a lot to work on and hundreds of new stitches to add to my arsenal, but I am still really proud nonetheless. I still have my original makes from when I started sitting next to me. Seeing them compared to what I make now reminds me that each little step that I make does become some pretty big steps down the road. It has been so worth sticking to this craft!
Now that 2019 is literally here, I wanted to take a moment to go back and show off some of my favorite pieces from this year – 2018 has been another crazy year (I assume that’s normal when you own a business?) But I’m feeling more confident in the person that I am and I think that is a solid win. I still want to better myself, but I don’t feel as scared and uncertain about my life. I feel like I’m truly doing the right thing right now. Enough about that though, down below you will find my Top 10 patterns (Starting from the tenth spot to the first!) and each image will be linked to the FREE pattern that can be found on my Blog! And what do you know, literally EVERY pattern here was made using Lion Brand Yarn!
Thank you everyone for being here and encouraging me to be a better artist each day – I’m excited to get back to creating for the entirety of 2019!
10. Frosted Basket
This piece was created for Mother’s Day! My mom still uses it and I think it has a lovely touch of whimsy to it!
9. Happy Pill-O
This piece holds a special place with me. I created it to give a constant reminder that when your humanity is being dragged through the dirt due to mental illness, that you’re not alone. This was intended to be made for other’s who you know are going through a hard time. After making this piece, I was in a car crash and I was pretty unstable. This Pill-O gave me brief moment’s of clarity that I may be hurt, but I’m not broken.
This was my first piece ever that had an actual purpose besides being worn/or novelty. I actually did bring it down to Portland to use! I made this project while I was binging Game of Thrones, which I think a lot of the inspiration came from. You can also purchase this pattern as a full Kit from Lion Brand Yarn HERE!
My first garment! (That’s not a hat or scarf) This piece is made up of one big rectangle; it works up so easily and a great project to mindlessly work on as you watch TV.
This is an updated version of one of my first patterns! I love jellyfish and I think with the bows included, these are sure to stand out.
Making crochet look tough isn’t the easiest thing, but I think this would do that task justice! Easy pattern, I think it really can change the look of a singular outfit!
Not exactly a pattern, but this is a fun tutorial on how to Yarn Punk your clothing!
Although I’m lactose intolerant, Ice cream was still on my mind during the summer – This amigurumi is my favorite mash-up of 2018!
And here it is, my favorite pattern this year! I drew inspiration from Vincent Valentine (from the Final Fantasy franchise) and it’s such a fun piece to wear! It acts like a giant blanket and draws lots of eyes.
