Geometric Flowers- FREE Cross Stitch Pattern

I designed this free cross stitch pattern some time ago with the intention of having it in the first magazine issue. Ever since I admitted to myself I didn’t have time for the magazine I’ve really been just reformulating, making things for the sheer joy of it, deciding where to go from here and where […]

Super Simple Crochet Cat Balls

This pattern is almost to easy to bother writing, but I want to share it anyway. If you are a more experienced crocheter you can no doubt make these without a pattern, but you may still be interested in my stuffing. Our Kismet is still quite playful and I often will whip up a quick […]

The Puffy Cowl- Another Single Skein Project using the Puff Stitch

I love single skein projects. I do. If a publisher approached me and said: “Alicia, we want you to design a book!” I’d say “Can it be single skein projects?!?!?!” (Hint hint to any publishers out there.) Well, of course, that’s if they specified YARN specific book, otherwise, I’d do a book with a bit […]

The Kathryn Shawl- A New Granny Style Shawl/Scarf

A while ago I released the Ann Shawl, a crochet shawl that was named after the aunt who tried to teach me to crochet, and here we have the Kathryn Shawl, named after my Mom who DID successfully teach me to crochet. Here’s the thing, they are exactly the same crochet shawl. The only difference […]

Troll Cake Hat- and Recipe for Troll Cake

I’ve mentioned that I’m a troll cook, but I also tend to be a troll crafter. The Troll Attitude tends to be “it is what it is.” A recipe makes the amount it is meant to make.  A cut shape comes out the measurement it comes out, and in this case, a hat comes out as […]

The Ann Shawl- a classic granny square shawl in two sizes

I have always adored granny squares. I’d buy granny items from thrift stores even at a very young age. At around 13 years old I became really determined to make my own. The only person I knew well that crocheted at the time (and was local enough to teach me) was my Aunt Ann. Only […]

Hygge Hat

A few weeks ago I had the idea for a thick and quick to make cozy winter hat. Something that was easy and fairly mindless and you could just create a stack for by the front door. “Oh! It got so cold outside! Take a hat!” Or that could be made for the homeless with […]

The Ribbed Beanie- A 1967 Redo

The 1967 Knit Beret did NOT work up like the picture showed but the finished result is beautiful and the pattern is here for free.  Since I wanted a ribbed hat I did the obvious thing and designed my own! This pattern is a little harder than the beret but still uses only basic stitches. Both […]

Woven Knitting Pattern – Forest Floor Scarf

The August issue didn’t feature to awful many projects, but I needed a knitting project because I didn’t like the one I tried in the July issue. It was awkward stitching, and I felt the finished style was to loose, it didn’t look like the bobbles it claimed to be. So I started the basic […]

1950s Open Crochet Medallion

(Free Pattern Below!) The crochet motif in the June issue was interesting to me. The original photo didn’t show the entire piece as being crochet. It looked almost like they were sewn together in some special way, but I knew that was unlikely. I also really loved the idea of a very light, lacy scarf […]

Reusable Water Bombs- Crochet, washable, and FUN!

Kids love water balloons, but I HATE them. First you spend money on them, then you spend ages filling them (or having them fill them) and you pay the water bill for it, then the kids have all of 5 minutes of fun, and then you spend hours finding colorful balloon fragments all over the […]
