I’m a craft designer and author of hundreds of articles and reviews about crocheting and other crafts. I search out and present novel approaches to classic patterns and techniques to encourage you to try something new. I’m delighted that so many of you read my posts and that I can contribute to promoting our crochet community. I’m interested in crafts, interior design and love traveling and sitting next to a campfire. I live with my husband and three kids in the Rockies.

As sung as a bug in a rug, but as beautiful as any butterfly.

Well, seeing as the weather suddenly took a turn for the worse, it’s high time that we start crocheting warm, bulky and comforting items. In this vein, cocoon sweaters are great because they’re thick, drapy and super comfy to wrap up in on a cold morning or evening. Although they are a fair bit of work due to their thickness and size, they are super rewarding to make. Needless to say, they are also extremely relaxing and fun to wear, and appreciated even more as favorite gifts.
