By using this lovely, lighter weight yarn, the crocheted cable takes on a beautifully elegant appearance. I rarely leave the house in the...

Say it with me: Amigurumi!

To me, crocheted amigurumi is an artistic expression that’s like no other. I’m always in awe of amigurumi designers and the great detail the put into their designs. The finished figures are three dimensional art pieces that are like having drawings or...

Crochet Roundup: Summer Styles

I love a pattern that takes me on a crochet adventure and changes the way I think about constructing a finished piece. I’m grabbed by patterns tagged “one piece” and “worked flat” and, that sweet and sassy word, “seamless.” That’s what I discovered in many of this month’s newly released patterns.

Crazy About Crocheted Cables

When you hear cable stitches, do you immediately think knit or crochet? While this stunning technique often reminds people of knit pieces, it’s also quite common in crochet.

I love crocheting cables. Cabled projects are those slow working, savor-each-stitch adventures that are well worth the time. Those twisting and twining vines of stitches create a pattern that will make you stop and look in...
