Free Pattern: Heirloom Baby Patterns

Are these patterns gorgeous or what?! I was looking for scarf patterns and got sidetracked. These were too cute to pass up. Love DROPS Design.

Pattern: Big Stitch Rug

I made this mock big stitch rug as a dog mat/bed for my new puppy, Erica. It’s my do-it-yourself version of big stitch knitting without actually investing in specialty needles or yarns. The yarns and needles are expensive and hard to find. So rather than spring for giant knitting needles (I’d rarely use), I made […]
