Velvet Acorn, A Favorite

Tis the season for yarn, coffee, needles and hooks. With the increasing cold weather, those of us that make, have an increase in orders. What is the most requested items this year? Non other then the wonderful Velvet Acorn designs.

I have had my eye on this lady for over two years now. Since before she had crochet patterns available, and before she lifted her “personal use only” terms. When I saw her recognizable designs all over ETSY, I had to hop aboard!

Her patterns are extremely well written, and easy to follow for all skill levels. She also has pattern pack purchases available at a discount. I have gladly participated in her pattern packs.

Here is her knit Failynn Fox hood. I’ve made quite a few of these this winter, and it always comes out fabulous. With a color change or two, you can make many animals. Knitters will need to know some basic crochet to get the proper look.

Knitters only- This hat is so absolutely gorgeous. If you love cables, or have always wanted to make a cabled project, you will not be disappointed with the Serenity hat. The math that it must have taken to get the cables just right in this pattern, well, it gives me a headache just thinking about it. This was actually requested by a crochet friend. Yarnies, not afraid to ask others for a must have =)

Crocheters only- The Ashby scarf is a very feminine cowl that is great for those (like me) that worry about a choking hazard. One end tucks in the other, and can be pulled open. The make up is very simple, but the look is exquisite. This is a great beginner pattern.

I have other patterns that I have yet to make. I admittedly went pattern crazy, but they are all so adorable, I blame her ever so cute models =).

Have a Crafty Day!
