Fall-Winter 2016 is here. The little collection is made up of mix and match hats, scarves, cowl, and gloves available in 8 color combos. Some designs are returning from previous years, some are brand new. And a few other random items are available again in the shop also, like the crocheted men’s tie and Collector’s Drawstring Bag. Have a look here, and go get you some cozy goodness!

The pattern for this lovely drawstring bab is now available in my shop, here –

I used to have the bag itself available for purchase in the shop, but I’ve been considering offering the pattern for a long while now. It’s a great easy/intermediate level pattern.

I guess this could technically be called another Project-Styled Outfits, but all the crochet pieces you see here are designs I’ve been working on the past several weeks.

The first hat above is the same hat pictured in this post, just in a different color, and the second hat above is the other one I mention in that post. I don’t usually go for more cutesy hats and things, but I kept seeing these understated, “cat ear-shaped” beanies and actually really liked the effect, so I decided to try designing one of my own.

A lot of crocheters are big on making boot cuffs, but I’m not really into those. I do love legwarmers, however. I had a few pairs growing up but always felt conscious of my bigger calves once I put them on, so not long and thin like most legwarmer-wearers in pictures I’d seen, but they’re just one of my favorite clothing items and the older I’ve gotten I’ve embraced my body shape even more, so I definitely plan to wear these once it gets cold enough to warrant it.

This top is just a skirtless version of this tunic dress, and I love them both so much! I was inspired by the muscle tee trend for these, and it’s so cool to have a crochet version that’s easy to wear. Such a simple shape and stitch, but I love the open sides and the overall look. The shape pairs well with a long, stand-out necklace, and this top-only version works great over tank tops and dresses.

This bag is probably one of the designs I’ve made that I’m most pleased with. It took a lot longer than most things I make, with several sessions of rows and rows of frogging as I worked on getting the size right, as well as finding the best stitching for the strap (I wanted it wide for comfort but not stretchy). It’s very technically sound, and I think one of the reasons I’m so pleased with it is that I can see in the design and the process of making it how far I’ve come as a crocheter and designer.

Pretty sure most of these, if not all, will be available in my upcoming shop. :) So exciting!

Hope you all have a wonderful day. God bless!
