Have you ever been gifted a gorgeous skein of hand dyed yarn and had absolutly no idea what to make with it? No worries friends I have found the perfect project for you, a basic half double crochet beanie, or as I like to call it, the Nola Beanie!
I am going to be sharing the Pereskia Kimono crochet pattern with you all for FREE.
As most of you know I have been slowly (but surely) moving all of my Etsy patterns to my blog. A few months ago I asked my Instagram followers (@Hookedontilly) if I should share the Genesis or Pereskia Kimono first, most of you voted for the Genesis Kimono, which I LOVE so I totally get it. But now it is time for us to get started on the Pereskia Kimono!
Recently, a family friend of ours visited us and she happened to bring along dish scrubbies. Random? Yes. Useful? Totally.
As our we chatted she began to tell me about her dish scrubbies, she went on to say that making them was her "thing." She exclaimed, "They are a great and quick project that I am easily able to sell for my fundraisers."
Recently, I've found myself struggling to find inspiration. Sometimes, I try so hard to design amazing pieces that I end up completely failing.
It's such a sucky feeling.
One way I am able to come out of that "funk" is by strolling the yarn aisle at Hobby Lobby or Joanns and letting the yarn speak for itself. The different colors, textures, weights, all have something to say.
This throw has definitely made it's way to the top of my "Favorite Cozy Blankets I've made list" mostly do to the fact I despise crocheting blankets and i've honestly only made 3 in my crochet career.
As for the name; Hygge. I chose this Danish name specifically because of it's wondrous meaning.
" In Danish, hygge (pronounced “HUE-gah”) is one such word. Though there are many ways to describe hygge, we see it simply as the Danish ritual of enjoying life's simple pleasures. Friends. Family. Graciousness."
Do you guy's know what the absolute BEST part of summer is?
It's Farmer's Markets.
I mean come on, who doesn't love waking up early in the morning (cup of coffee in hand of course) and taking a relaxing walk down to your local farmer's market. Supporting small town vendors and getting to try all those yummy baked goods!
We've all been there. It's a hot summer day. You're hanging outside, sunbathing, just doing your thing and you reach to take a drink of your cold iced macchiato from your fav coffee shop,
but wait... UGH

In all the years I've been crocheting/knitting I am yet to make a pom pom rug! Of course, this DIY does not require you to crochet/knit but with having such a large yarn stash you would think I'd have made one by now.
I've been pretty busy lately, as most of you know this blog is new to me and I'm still working on coming up with fun DIY projects for you all. I've actually been in an inspiration rut lately, when this happens I will often leave my house and just wonder around town. So that's exactly what I did!

I am currently in search for a number of dedicated pattern testers. After recent review I have decided I am in need of a group of beginner through advanced knit and crochet pattern testers who are willing to work with me long term.
If you’ve been following my design process, you may notice I lack a very popular knit/crochet accessory that most people adore; shawls.
Where I live it is insanely hot. Like dry, I’m always dehydrated, hot. So Shawls tend to be a piece I often place in the back of my mind. It’s honestly a shame, shawls can be so versatile and allow for so much creativity. You can use basically any yarn with almost every stitch.
If you're anything like me, binding off is THE WORST part of knitting (with weaving in ends following of course).
I always felt like when I was doing the basic bind off method, it looked messy, was really tight and took forever. After going through pretty much every knitting book I own, I came across the slip stitch bind off method.
When knitting different projects I often find myself needing to icnrease. Whether it be a hat, garment, or shawl. I have found my favorite method to be the "Make One" or abbreviated in patterns as "M1"
