Designer Picks

One of the perks of my job is getting to know some serious crochet talent! Designing patterns is a true art that takes skill, imagination, time & money. I’ve had the opportunity to get closer to many wonderfully talented crochet designers. I asked a few of them what design would be their #1 favorite pattern they have written, the following patterns are what they shared with me!

Basket Weave Chevron Afghan by Crafting Friends Designs

Kate’s afghan is stunning! I just want to curl up under it and Netflix the day away!

I want to fill this bag with yarn and sit under an umbrella poolside! Jennifer’s way of playing with colors and shapes inspires me.
