Two New Patterns!

I have two new patterns for you in Crochet Today mag! The first is a super easy sweater that can easily be worn to either beach or bistro...



The pattern calls for Red Heart Hula yarn, but I can easily see this in myriad fibers. Cotton or bamboo would be lovely. I have a fairly large stash of ecru, taupe and cornmeal colored cotton, which I think would make a lovely striped version of this sweater.

The second pattern is my take on the classic tomato pincushion...



Another simple pattern that utilizes Red Heart Super Saver. Although, I think this too would look great in a shiny mercerized cotton. Methinks it would also be a wonderful gift for Mother's Day!

The newest issue of Crochet Today is currently available at your local newsstand or bookseller. Enjoy!

I am going to have to buy my first ever crochet magazine, because I love that pincushion! I want to make dozens.

I immediately put the pin holder on my "must make" list when I saw it in the magazine. Too cute. I like that sweater, too.

The patterns are sensational! And thank you for using 'myriad' correctly.

FYI: my work verification is 'unsoft'. Not even joking.

Sally said...

Make that 'word' verification. Not 'work'.

Hi I love both the sweater and pin cushion patterns.

Question: How do you make it into the business? I have been crocheting since I was 6, and I am very passionate about it. I want to make it a business.
