I Heart Free Patterns

I have only been crocheting for a short while, but have really been enjoying making new things. But in order to make pretty much anything, I need a pattern to follow! I know there are a lot of great patterns on etsy that I could buy, but I would much rather follow a FREE pattern :). I have found some great sites that have some awesome and easy patterns that are free, but I have to say that my favorite site is Caron. They have both crochet and knitting patterns! There are so many patterns I would like to try out, it’s hard to figure out where to start! And best of all, this website uses my favorite type of yarn… Simply Soft!!

  This is a pattern for a super cute hat that I want to try making… cute right? I think this one will be my next project… maybe once I’m finished making it, I will post the result on here :).

If anyone has any other websites you like to use that has free patterns, please share them in the comments. I’m always up for more free patterns :).

Tuesdays Talent

I love etsy! There are some great shops and great people that I have met during my time on etsy. I met this girl through etsy’s BNS’s (if you don’t know what a BNS is, I’ll try and explain it some other time). Her name is Michaela… I know her as Buttons :). Her shop is AWESOME!! If you ever get a chance to check out her shop (ButtonsandYarnOhMy), you should! The stuff she makes is awesome and very well priced too :).  She has a blog too that you should check out as well!!

She knits scarves, cowls, coffee cozy’s, dish cloths, bracelets, and headbands! Here is one of her items she has in her shop now…

So be sure to check out her shop! I know she has some awesome deals going on right now too, so if you see something you just can’t live without, you can get a great deal!

I am going to try and feature an etsy shop every Tuesday… hence the title “Tuesdays Talent”.
