Ravelry Projects Episode 3

Well, I did it! I made it through the longest semester in the universe. To celebrate, here’s another batch of beautiful projects made by talented artists using my designs, although I should probably change the title of these posts since most of these aren’t from Ravelry. Eh, oh well.

Thank you guys so much for sharing your awesome projects with me!


This pair of Lotus Mandala VestsΒ was created by Bev Jones : One for her, using the extra sizing rounds now included in the written pattern, and one for her 5-year-old, adding the armholes after Rnd 13. She used Katia Paint Gradient for both!


Michele made this bright & citrusy Flower Child PulloverΒ for her 13-year-old using Caron Cakes yarn! Looks super groovy πŸ˜€ Plus you don’t have to weave in as many ends using those long-color-change yarns πŸ˜‰ Thanks for sharing!

Kym Stroud Smith Scrappy Granny


Check out those colors on this amazing Scrappy Granny ShawlΒ made by Kym Smith! She’s stitching in Australia so it’s the perfect time to make up something cozy. I just love that golden mustard color next to the smoky lavender and grays!


Keltronica’s Lotus Mandala DusterΒ came out looking perfect! Check out her helpful notes on the project on the Ravelry project pageΒ . Lovely photos taken by Tim Sutherland.

Ravelry Projects Episode 2

I’ve said it many times, and I’ll say it again – one of the very BEST parts about designing patterns and being part of the online crochet community is seeing the awesome stuff people make from my patterns. Everybody adds a little something different – a different perspective, technique, flair – to the projects that make them truly unique! Plus I get to see more variations than I would ever have time to do myself, so it’s basically like I get to stitch vicariously. Which is awesome. Have I mentioned I love you guys?

Anyway, here are some lovely projects I have gathered from Ravelry users, all photos shared with permission of course.

This is ACountryYarn’s beautiful version of the Lotus Mandala Duster, from the free pattern on my blog here. I love it in those soft colors!


Check out BekkaPoo’s Winter Wizard Hood, made using half double crochets in the back loop instead of Tunisian – so magic! Much wow! She used the Tunisian Fantasy Hood as a guide, a pattern that is more or less the ancestor to my recently released Trickster Hood.

If you follow me on Facebook you may have seen these over the summer, a fabulous top made from my Plus Size Sol Halter pattern. Made by Sandy from the Etsy shopΒ Sandy’s Sundries who graciously helped me pattern test!

This version of the Lotus Duster features handspun in the center – I dig those blues and oranges! Made by Raveler Mamadear – you can see the full project page here. So pretty!


Finally here’s a stunning Scrappy Granny shawl from the free pattern I recently released on my blog and asΒ download on Ravelry, stitched beautifully by Chicky Magoo!

HUUUGE thank you to everyone who has shared photos of your amazing projects! If you’ve got a project you’d like to share with me and/or this blog, message me on Facebook or tag me on Instagram!

Ravelry Projects Episode 1!

I was really excited to discover some photos of projects made from my patterns posted on Ravelry recently, and I couldn’t wait to share them here. I adore Ravelry for supplying the ability for fiber artists to connect and share notes, patterns, and tips and tricks with each other, as well as show off their work. If you’re not on Ravelry yet, try it out! And if you are, and you make things from my patterns, I would love to see them and share them here (with permission of course). So here’s the first episode in what I hope will be a series of Ravelry project posts of Morale Fiber patterns…

First up is tammyc77’s Morale Fiber Lotus Throw, a version of my free patternΒ where she squares up the circular motif to awesome effect! To be honest, this looks better than the original. Nice job!

Then there’s Queenie74’s Into the Woods, a version of my Woodsman’s Wife Ruana, made with regular weight Homespun instead of Homespun Thick & Quick – she has great notes on the changes written on her project page if you’d rather work with bulky weight instead of super bulky. In fact, I might try that out since I have a few skeins of Homespun on the ol’ yarn wall.

(*to self* Yeah right MF, after you finish the 90 other things you are supposed to be doing.)
