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.

So, as I sit here, the leaves are falling outside.

Indeed, fall is well and truly here and on its way to winter. Thus it’s definitely time to bundle up and keep warm. While there may be better ways to do so, few top a crocheted cowl vest. Therefore, I’d like to present a few patterns for these wonderful, fun garments that will keep your shoulders and torso warm, but still give you lots of freedom. After all, despite wanting to bundle up and not do anything, this is a busy season and there is lots to do and to make. Consequently, meet all these challenges in true crochet style.
