Crochet: Coat / Jacket
Little ones deserve some fashion-forward design, too, and Vickie Howell delivers the goods. Her crocheted Pea-wee Toddler Coat makes a fashion statement like no other. Details abound: sweet collar, contrast stitching and double-breasted wonderfulness. Crocheted in Stitch. Rock. Love Sheep(ish), this “peacoat” is pretty darn precious.
Our theory on scarves is: you can never have—or make—too many, especially when you find an intriguing pattern like Vickie Howell’s Biased Opinion Scarf. Knit in her new yarn Stitch. Rock. Love. Sheep(ish), the scarf’s subtle texture is achieved with an easy bias stitch pattern. Extra long and generously fringed, the Biased Opinion S...

It works with anybody’s style really, and is the perfect garment to keep ...

This week I thought I’d share the quick and easy project I demo’d at the recent TNNA (The National Needle Arts) convention. Chopstick cozies are a sweet way to use up scrap yarn and paired with a pretty pair of sticks, make a cute housewarming or host gift. My pattern offers both knit and crochet instructions and is made using Sheep...

Parents of toddlers will relate; getting a sweater on an always-running child is a challenge. That dear stitchers, is why the TooDee Frutti Poncho can be a mom’s best friend! Cut the chill with this crocheted cutie, then high-five yourself for a job well done!
Knitting: Pullover, Dress
The Tuxita Baby Tunic is knit in Blue Mint & Forest Floor using Garter & Stockinette stitch. The tiny tuxedo ruffle adds a little playfulness to an otherwise simple, vest bodice. My daughter Clover’s modeling it over tights, but it would be equally adorable over baby’s jeans, leggings or bloomers!
