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.

While it’s good to prep for various holidays, sometimes it’s nice to crochet for the sake of crocheting.

Therefore, here are some projects that allow you to treat yourself just for you. Of course, what better way than nice sweaters, and a patchwork cardigan has to near the acme of that. Indeed, there is something so classic, yet so playful and joyous in a sweater that’s made of little crocheted squares. Moreover, they are infinitely customizable, because modifications can range from the whole cardi in one type of square to each square different, and anything in between. Truly, you can go from order to chaos and back, and define your own style down to the stitch, all while having so much fun.
