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.

Crocheting is a great way to make outer garments for the approaching spring and summer seasons. In fact, crocheted outerwear is great for any season other than the dead of winter. So, without further ado, here are some patterns for crochted coats and sweaters to enjoy outside.
