Sweet Potato 3

In true Christmas fashion, many of us are running around remembering those last minute gifts that slipped our mind. You know, the fabulous teachers that spend all day inspiring our children, the piano teacher that sparks creativity, the coaches that teach hard work, the neighbors that always offer a smile and an extra hand when you need it. The list could go on and on.

The Hygge Wine and Coffee Cozy is ready just in time!

Sweet Potato 3

Why Hygge?

I love working with colors that can come to life in a pattern. As I worked up the wine and coffee cozy I fell in love with the look of the stitches. It reminded me of the beautiful Norwegian designs. Can you see the resemblance? I adore the windows in the building, it is such a quaint and perfect setting.

And here is a great excerpt from “The Untranslatable” on what “Hygge” is:

There’s no direct English translation for hygge, but the word evokes both coziness and togetherness. “It’s not just cozy with a blanket and a glass of wine,” Kurtz tells Quartz. “It’s also interpersonally cozy—so having a few people with you talking about issues and things you care deeply about. Having some candles lit, maybe a nice warm drink in your hand. Feeling safe and content.”

And there you have it! The unique Nordic Norwegian Hygge Wine & Coffee Cozy!

Slalom Slope Beanie Crochet Pattern

      No Comments on Slalom Slope Beanie Crochet Pattern

I love to release new patterns and this one tops the cake! The Slalom Slopes Beanie is a beautiful hat design with so much texture that you are sure to love it. I designs this hat for a dear friend of mine, who’s daughter was just diagnosed with Breast Cancer, at age 18. I was really trying to make a hat that was stylish for the young, warm, and full of texture.

Sweet Potato 3

The Slalom Slope Beanie crochet pattern was made in sizes: Toddler, Child, Youth/Ladies and Adult/Men. Add a cute pom for that added spark of character to its look or make it in a messy bun style (instructions included in the pattern).

The beautiful twisting cables reminds me of that first run on the ski hill in the morning. The joy the first run of the morning brings is so amazing. I hope this hat will warm your heart just like that first run warms your spirit!

I am so excited for the new Woven Shells Hat & Cowl Crochet Pattern. This was inspired by Jennifer in my Crochet & Conversation Group. Which by the way, if you are not a part of, you better come join us by clicking, HERE. Last week I asked what stitches folks would like to see in a pattern. Jennifer posted the Woven Shells Stitch and I already had the cowl so decided to make a set and add a beautiful hat to go with it!
