Are you a crocheter? Have you noticed how Spring brings out an entire BATCH of amazing designs from the needles of indie designers? This week has brought out a near record number of marvelous patterns. In my personal stream of crochet consciousness rose the shining star of Crochet It Creations!
Jessica, the amazing proprietress of Crochet It Creations, is a busy lady. Wife, mom to 3 children AND a full time nurse. (Nurses are some of my very favorite people on the planet.) How she finds time to design amid all that I'll never know. My brain just isn't that organized. She burst on the scene with her own patterns in 2017 though as she says in her biography, she's been designing her own patterns since 2011. Gratefully she decided to share them with us on her blog! How cool is that?
First, yes, I love all the patterns. Choosing my favorites to share was a very difficult process for me. This also means that Jessica's work is tempting me to put aside all my personal, non-commissioned, projects to make one of her designs. LOL I know... not a great idea. However, on the plus side I do have all the yarn I need on hand?! So that's good right?
I think I must start with my obsession... the Cameo Cardigan. Yes I WILL be making this sweater. I am on the tall-ish side like my cardis roomy so I will very likely be making the XL size FYI. The Cameo Cardigan popped up in my facebook feed. When I found out it was seamless I was thrilled! I prefer not to have bulky seams everywhere. Perfect. This sweater is designed to fit children's size 10-12 through Adult 2XL. The pattern is free on Crochet It Creations blog however, a PDF copy can be purchased here for ease of use. All three patterns are included.
Accessorizing during months when there is a chill in the air is a must. If you have to wear a hat it might as well be fabulous! Crochet It Creations has collection of hats that range from the practical to the whimsical. Jessica has designed hats for adults and children. I have my favorites but you can check out all the hats here.
Winter seems to last a long time here in the Northern Adirondacks. It's still cold here but that's to be expected. Local kids had Easter egg hunts today IN the snow :) Mittens or fingerless mittens were on display today not the traditional Easter bonnet. Jessica's Woodland Mittens are the perfect thing to keep hands warm. I really like that this mitten has a longer cuff... I have long fingers. Sized toddler to adults plus a fingerless version can be found here.
I don't want to give away the WHOLE game but Crochet It Creations has a couple of blanket patterns that definitely need a mention because they are very attractive! These blankets would, absolutely, make a lovely home accessory. I think a blanket is good for any space including porches or even the beach on a windy day.
I have only given a little taste of the patterns available from Crochet It Creations! Why not spend some time looking through Jessica's patterns on Ravelry an keep up with her on Facebook (if you can LOL). I've joined the Crochet It Creations Friends group on Facebook. Share your pictures chat with more of Jessica's fans. I am glad that Jessica decided to share her patterns with us! Find a pattern you like? Why not let Jessica know! As always, thank you for reading the blog today!
