Cables and Lace and Beads; Oh My!

When I received this skein of Mink yarn from Red Barn Yarns, I just knew it needed to be around my neck and I wanted a pattern that was just as special as the yarn itself. That’s where the Dew On the Vine Cowl was born.

On a side note, today is just perfect. I love autumn.

Sunny September Day

I hope you’re doing something you enjoy today!

I’m truly overwhelmed by the response to my patterns! I’ve received so many wonderful messages from knitters and crocheters thanking me for my patterns. I never expected these patterns to take off like they have. I thought my freebie pattern sale would result in people I know downloading the patterns and maybe a couple of people they know. I never expected anything like this! Because of all the wonderful people who have downloaded my patterns, my Chalet Cowl made it to page one of the Hot Right Now on Ravelry! Thank you all so much!!


By the way, if anyone wants to make the Chalet Cowl in the Chalet yarn from Classic Elite Yarns, A Likely Yarn is happy to ship to you! Give them a call to place an order 276-628-2143. They only charge actual shipping cost which is minimal for USPS First Class.

I’ve decided to put some of the patterns that I’ve designed over the years on Ravelry. Some of them are still only available at the yarn shop I work for, but some are available for purchase.

This is a two piece set I created for teaching the beginning crochet and crochet around classes that I teach.

You can get the ebook version with both patterns here, or you can get the Scarf here or the Hat here separately.

All of my designs can be found here. Not all of them are up yet, but as I have time there will be more patterns. I have two more crochet patterns that will be up very soon.
