So, I have a pretty cool pattern for you all today. If I do say so myself, this has to be one of my favorite headbands i’ve made to date!
I was laying in bed, thinking about what I should make for the blog. If you haven’t noticed by now I love designing garments (It’s just what I do) but I know there are plenty of people out there who prefer to make quick and easy projects. It’s been getting pretty cold here lately and I realized I haven’t designed a thick headband really ever. So I went ahead and made the Ember Headband.
I actually fell in love with this headband way more than I planned. It’s cozy and gorgeous, how could I not? I went ahead and even made one for my toddler so we could match! Below I also listed how you can adjust this headband to fit a multitude of sizes.
Headband is worked in the round.
Chain two does not count as a stitch.

The beginning chain is the circumference of the head, if you would like to make your headband fit a different size make a chain up to 1” less than the recipients head circumference (make sure to keep your stitch count even). The rounds worked are the width of the headband, feel free to make it as wide as you’d like.

The Everest Beanie is here! For the longest time, I’ve wanted to design a really quick and easy bulky beanie for you all. Well, today is that day!
Velvet scrunchies were all the rage back in the ’80s, was I there? No. But in spirit, I was wearing these bad boys because they were just that “fetch!”
It’s that time of year again, it’s hot, sweaty, bright, and we all live with our sunglasses permanently plastered to our face.
The Cam Drawstring Bag was inspired by my own drawstring bags hanging in my closet, each one used and abused to the very end of their existence.
So, It’s Spring! Which means I’ll be spending my days frolicking through the flowers in a crochet bikini top and flower crown.
This week has been REAL crazy. So what does a crazy week call for? A quick and easy project that allows for some instant gratification. The Polo fanny pack is just that!
During the crazy busy holiday season, sometimes we need make a project that works up in under 30 minutes, and uses a simple stitch repeat. Well, I’ve got you all covered!
The Breah beanie was inspired by my love for quick, easy and simple projects. As we’re getting closer to the Holiday season I find myself needing more gifts for friends and family. I obviously don’t have enough time to make them a big blanket or sweater, so I always end up resorting to a beanie. The Breah Beanie is the perfect addition to your quick gift projects!

Recently, I decided I wanted to design ore items that I would consider outside of my “comfort zone.” For me that involves more summer items that work up quickly that I know a lot of my readers would really enjoy.

Today I have a totally fund and different project for you all, a sweater dress!
The Meadow Tank is here and I am SO excited to be sharing this free pattern with you all today! Inspired by the crochet version (Shimmer Me Pretty Tank) I thought it would be interesting to try creating a knit version of the same design, and I am so delighted with the result.
Hey Guy’s! This sweater began and ended in many different forms.
The Copasetic Sweater was inspired by my obsession of the vintage 1950’s skirts.
