Crochet: Om Shanti Yoga Mat Bag

 I wanted to create a yoga mat bag with lots of texture.

Nailed it.

This functional bag features layer upon layer of shell ruffles worked on top of a single crochet surface stitch which is worked on top of a simple single crochet tube bag.

While it does take some time and dedication it will be  worthwhile to see stitch within stitch within stitch construct this fabulous bag.

It's stitch-ception at its finest.

Crochet: Miss Cosby Sweater

An oversized cardigan inspired by one of America’s greatest T.V. families. This classic cardigan gets a retro touch of Cosby coloring and shaping while still maintaining a contemporary sensibiilty from being constructed in a silky yarn that offers great movement and drape.

Complete with a chain belt, wear this cardigan while  running errands or meeting a good friend for coffee.

This intermediate pattern uses the half-double and herringbone crochet stitch along with some basic shaping techniques.  It's a great design for those crocheters who want to make their first cardigan.
