Hello! So this is more of just a basic run down of how I made this sweater. If I get enough interest I would be happy to make more of a detailed pattern with pictures. You can easily adjust the size and length of this sweater by just adding more or less rows and stitches. Don’t worry about being super specific with stitch counts, just be sure to make matching pieces the same size! Please leave a comment if you have any questions or need me to be more specific in certain areas!
If you complete a sweater be sure to post a picture on Instagram and Tag ME! 🙂
I had so much fun making Whistle and Ivy’s plaid hat, that I decided to whip up a matching crochet plaid headband for my daughter! This pattern is kid’s size but is easily made larger or smaller by changing the beginning chain length. Just be sure to use multiples of 6. Definitely head over to the Whistle and Ivy blog to see her awesome tutorial on how to achieve this plaid look.
Worsted weight yarn in 3 colors (I used Red, Dark Red and black)
5mm crochet hook
I wen’t to Michaels the other day and fell in love with there new Alpaca yarn! There’s so many beautiful colors I will definitely be going back for more. The two colors I picked go really well together so I decided to make something using both, an infinity scarf!
Super bulky weight yarn. I used Lush Alpaca by Loops and Threads in Taupe and Pink.
10mm crochet hook
Super bulky yarn, I used Lion-brand Wool-Ease Thick and Quick in Moonlight.

This cowl is super fast to whip up! I found this Pattern for the Lorelei super scarf and fell in love with it. Instead of making a scarf I decided to turn it into a cowl. It’s a really simple and repetitive pattern.
I chained 27 and completed rows 1-4. I then repeated rows 2-4 until I had a total of 27 rows altogether.
After that, I slip stitched the beginning row and last row together. Weave in all the ends.
Simple as that.
And of course my adorable little model…

I recently saw a picture of the side saddle stitch and wanted to try it! It’s a really gorgeous stitch and once you have it memorized its pretty straightforward. I decided to make a beanie out of it and will be adding it to my craft market stash! Here is a good video tutorial if you need a visual. The only difference is we are turning our work and working in the round instead of going back and fourth in rows.
Worsted Weight Yarn, I used Loops & threads urban yarn in oatmeal.

How cute are these tiny little whales?!? I wanted something that was quick to whip up and that I could make a bunch of. These guys will be going to craft fairs this fall. I’ll also be selling them on my Etsy shop! I found the Pattern for free on Ravelry, Check it out! The pattern is for the bigger whale, you will need safety eyes and fiberfill stuffing.
He turned out so dang cute I decided to make one even smaller.
I used size 10 Crochet thread to make the tiny guy and a size 1.5mm hook, following the exact same pattern. I used black embroidery thread for the eyes. It was really fun experimenting with such a small hook and thread. Don’t they look so cute together?
Tag me on Instagram and show me your whales you make!
