My Go-To Patterns

I'm sure a lot of you have your favorite patterns that you return to over-and-over. Whether it be knit or crochet, you love it so much you make more. I too have patterns that I fall back on constantly because they are my favorites. So, in this month's blog post I will be sharing below my favorite Knitting and Crochet patterns, along with my finished result. I hope you enjoy and I will be adding a link to these patterns just in case one catches your eye!

(No patterns will send you to Ravelry in case there are some here that are affected by the website)

My FAVORITE Crochet Patterns:

Sunday Ballet Slippers by Heart Hook Home

(Very simple, yet beautiful! I made mine a year ago, and I have to add grips on the bottom. If you have slippery floors, I would invest in some grippers for the bottoms if you make these.)

50 Minute Fingerless Gloves by RepeatCrafterMe

(These truly are quick to make. They might even take less than 50 minutes if you are fast at crocheting! I wear mine every fall.)

Seatbelt Cover by Heart Hook Home

(I used Red Heart yarn and it has held up for about 3 years. This pattern is perfect for those who, like me, have the seat belt digging into their neck when they drive.)

Granny Square Blanket

(This one does not have a link, I made this one up just by doing a continuous granny square until I reached my desired size.)

My FAVORITE Knitting Patterns:

Simple Stockinette Socks by A La Sascha

(This pattern is PERFECT for those who want to learn to knit socks but find it confusing. This pattern is so easy to follow. It helped me feel confident in making countless pairs of socks!)

A Basic Sweater You Can Knit by Better Homes and Gardens

(A sweater knit up in panels. This was my first time knitting a sweater since I did not know how to knit top down at the time. Very very beginner friendly.)

Knit Top Down Pullover by Yarnspirations

(Knit top down in the round with Bernat Velvet Yarn. If it wasn't so hot in my state, I would wear this sweater year round. It is SO comfortable!)

Of course, these are just a few of my every growing list of patterns I use repeatedly. But these are my all time favorites. I hope this inspires some of you to take a dive into a project you've never done before (top down knitting or socks).

Comment Below and tell me about all of your favorite patterns!


Quote of the Month

“ It is a peculiarity of knitters that they chronically underestimate the amount of time it takes to knit something. Birthday on Saturday? No problem. Socks are small. Never mind that the average sock knit out of sock-weight yarn contains about 17,000 stitches. Never mind that you need two of them. (That's 34,000 stitches, for anybody keeping track.)

Socks are only physically small. By stitch count, they are immense.”
