I know that diving into a Mystery CAL/KAL like Netherlee can be a little intimidating if you’ve never tried something similar in the past! I frequently get e-mails asking the same questions….so here’s a quick little FAQ post so those of you who are still in the fence can make a more informed decision before
Unexpected texture is high on the list of things I love in my knit/crochet projects. Beautiful, eye-catching texture elements are so fun to add to any project….they turn something simple into something really unique and fun. This is the idea I held close while designing my Pot Hole Cowl. I love the sort of unintentional
With the wrap up of my latest Mystery Create-A-Long, I’m excited to announce the addition of another awesome pattern to my store! The Amy Cardi isn’t your traditional cardigan. This cardigan features a long, flowing front with an eye-catching V-line neck, a back long enough to cover the rear (I love wearing long stuff with
One of the greatest parts about being a Red Heart Joy Creator is randomly receiving big boxes of yarn from time to time. It’s like the universe is asking you to be creative and giving you all the tools you need to do so. Or maybe it’s not really the universe…..and really it’s Red Heart.

This stunning infinity style wrap pattern features elements from two of my most popular designs to date! After completing the Jennika Infinity Wrap design, I was absolutely in love with wearing my finished wrap. The cables featured in that design make it a more heavy weight item though….and I really wanted something nice and light
My husband doesn’t wear yarn. He always says that it’s itchy and uncomfortable. So for a long time now, I’ve had a goal to make him a hat that he LOVES! Since he’s totally addicted to wearing his baseball cap year round, it simply made sense to create a hat that he could use along
This awesome baseball cap cover was my husband, Nick’s, amazing idea. He wears his favorite baseball cap year round because it’s most comfortable for him. Now, during the winter, he can put on his Cap Hat and turn his favorite baseball cap into his favorite winter beanie! It’s absolutely genius in my opinion…..and it finally

I’ve had this big, bold scarf design in mind for a while, but something about my design idea wasn’t quite right. Then last week I learned a new skill – the crochet I-Cord! I immediately knew I HAD to bring this pattern to life….ASAP! It was clear to me right away that the gorgeous Red

The Veronica Meets Spring Mystery Create-A-Long has come to an end. It’s always very bitter sweet for me to wrap these projects up. Bitter because I love our little community and having a project on the go is just so much fun! Sweet because I get a bit worn out during these events, and afterwards
The Veronica Meets Spring Mystery Create-A-Long is coming to a close….and we made a gorgeous Boho Chic, Mandala Inspired Bag during the event.
