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"
What's so great about this increase is it's pretty much invisible! You rarely are able to tell you've increased, which is obviously great when you want your work to look clean and professional.
My "Mysa Top" pattern will be releasing soon (I'll make sure to update you guy's here once the pattern is available) the Make One method is used within this pattern. As you can tell this increase is visible if you are using it more frequently on top of one another.
A video tutorial from my Youtube Channel is linked below. This tutorial goes over how to do the "Make One" increase when knitting.

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!
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."
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."

I have received a multitude of messages these past few months from fellow crocheters (and knitters) asking a variety of questions pertaining to how I am able to afford being a stay at home mom and make a REAL income from my crocheting. I decided I would put together a list of legitimate ways that I (and SO MANY others) make money from this craft. I do want to put out a disclaimer first and foremost that these methods work for me but they won't all work for everyone, we each live a diverse life and encounter different struggles when it comes to finances. I am hoping that at least one of these methods can be hopeful for some of you.
I thought I would write something a little different for you guy's today, I recently have become OBSESSED with color palette's. These charts are great for inspiring new designs and using colors you often would not think can "go" together. I did my best to use the three most common yarn brands out there.
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.
