Crochet: Beanie, Toque
Brioche knitting is such a fun technique, I wanted to see if I could create a similar look and feel with crochet. While this is decidedly not brioche, it sure does come close in stretch, squish, and texture.
Crochet: Tee
This top was designed with not one, but two Melanie’s in mind. While both of these ladies are certainly baad mama’s, my hope is that this particular tee will capture the imagination of everyone who loves a good slightly over-sized top with some flair.
Crochet: Pillow / Cushion
The Mia Ottoman is great for reading your favorite book, kicking up your feet after a long day, or adding that sophisticated handmade pop to your home décor. If you would like a wider ottoman, you will want to add an additional set of increase rounds for each additional inch across the diameter.
Crochet: Tee
