My Favorite Hat Pattern

Online Crochet Class



When I taught myself to crochet I was determined to only use free patterns. Until I found this Shabby Chic Shell Hat pattern from BlueJCrochet I am pretty sure this was my first pattern purchase and I still love it.

I have been meaning to put together this tutorial for years now. That's not me exaggerating either. My first applique set was released in 2013.I now have 6 sets of 12 appliques and am currently working on the 7th. You can find them all here: http://www.ravelry.com/stores/teri-heathcote-designs

Brrr, it's starting to getting colder here, but that just gives me an excuse to start making our winter accessories (not that I need an excuse to crochet).

Temperature Afghan




So I have been noticing a lot of talk about the temperature afghans lately. Have you started one?

If you have no idea what I am talking about check out this post from the Crochet Crowd which explains how they work. http://thecrochetcrowd.com/crochet-temperature-afghans/. And don't worry, no one is going to know you didn't start at the beginning of the year.

One idea a lady shared was to do 7 days of temperatures in one Granny Square. Each square would equal a week. I thought this was a really great way of doing it.

If you have been following me for awhile you might remember the Granny Square CAL. Some of these patterns will work great for the temperature afghan.

Hi everyone, I hope you are all doing well and not stressing too much this Christmas season. It has been months since I have picked up a crochet hook. I just couldn't find the right project to start. When I came across this Reindeer Basket while looking for handmade ideas for Christmas, I just knew I had to make it.

Hi everyone,

It's been a long time since I have written a post on here. I have just completed the Certificate in Fashion Design (Apparel Manufacturing) course. It was lots of fun and it was good to have a break and try something new. This is my first week back at home so hopefully after this you see more of me.


Since Christmas is coming up I have decided to have a sale. Now is a great time to grab all those patterns you have been meaning to get. All of my patterns in my Ravelry Store are now 25% off. This includes the single patterns and the eBooks. No code is needed. Simply add your patterns to your cart and the discount will be applied automatically.

All the patterns can be found here: http://www.ravelry.com/stores/teri-heathcote-designs

You will also find that the base blanket patterns are free. So why not try something new. Play around with the different appliques and bases. You can find some great ideas in the Ravelry projects for each pattern. Some people have created great blankets using one or two appliques.
