Happy first day of spring! It doesn't really feel like spring here yet, but that's not gonna stop me from celebrating! In honor of the sunshine and flowers to come, I'm excited to participate in a Spring Blog Hop with some other AMAZING crocheters. We've all got fun spring-themed patterns for you, so you definitely don't want to miss out on this one!
By now, I'm sure you've probably at least dabbled in C2C crocheting using the diagonal box stitch. But did you know that you can work other crochet stitches from corner to corner (C2C)? It's no secret that the moss stitch is one of my favorites, especially for variegated yarn. So when I learned that you can work the moss stitch c2c, I was ALL over it. Now, there are already video tutorials out there, so if that's your thing, then google away. Personally, I'm all about the photo tutorials. I couldn't find one that I liked, so of course I had to make my own! (Note: I am in no way claiming to have invented this stitch; this is just a tutorial. Full credit for this stitch goes to whoever invented it. Edit: I'm told that Polly Plum is the one to thank for it, so be sure to go check out her site and send some crochet kudos her way!)
I'm super excited for this week's Designer Spotlight post! This post is all about Julie of Jules Loves Yarn. I first got in touch with Julie when she helped to test my camera pattern last year. I've been following her work ever since and I'm a huge fan of her of her beautiful patterns. She is an extremely talented crochet designer (and photographer!) who specializes in trendy accessories. If you haven't seen her work yet, you have to go check it out ASAP! You can start by reading through her interview below and taking a peek at some of her work. And don't forget to read until the end, because Julie's been kind enough to offer a pattern coupon code for you all!
Thank you for stopping by to visit my own personal corner of the web! Feel free to take a look around and check out what I've been crafting, crocheting, or baking. Hopefully you'll find something to inspire your own creativity!
