My Journey Through Pattern Writing

Hi all, I think we all at some point want to design our own patterns, whether it’s a beanie, sweater, baby items, whatever it may be. We tend to let it go passed us, the difficulties that come with it and no, it’s not just writing the pattern itself. BEGINNINGS As a broke ass college…

The Jamie Fingerless Mittens Release

Hi all, I’m back at it again with a new design, the Jamie fingerless mittens! I have been wanting to do a fingerless mitten type of thing for a while now, but I never found the right type of yarn to use. Back in late 2013-early 2014, I made some fingerless mittens for fun and…

Differences Between Worsted Weight Yarns

Hi all, if you’ve used enough yarns then you must know that each yarn (brand/collection) are not equal.

The Rey Bralette Release

Hi all, I’m finally done with my 2nd bralette type top! It took me a minute because I was prepping for my first event of the year, so I didn’t have the time to fully write the pattern and take pictures. One of the hardest part for me on this top was the back ties….

4 Alternative Stitch Markers

Hi all, ever get tired of buying stitch markers because you lose them like crazy? It’s like chapstick, you always lose them, like where do they even go and how come you can’t find them in the house? lol These are some alternatives things you can use as stitch markers instead and they do have…

The Ryder Halter Release

Hi all, I released The Ryder Halter and pattern back in March 2017, but I never had the opportunity to make a blog about it! I love halter tops and I love making them. This top I wanted to go more for a “tribal” design, whatever you want to call it. I don’t even know…
