Birds Crochet Pillow Pattern

Birds Just Hangin Out

Good morning, fellow crocheters. I’m having such a great time designing my new crochet pillow line. Check it out at www.pattydavisdesign.com. You’ll see that I love mixing textures. The pillows are easy to create, but have great texture by using combinations of single crochet and double crochet. It’s also fun to mix chunky yarn and sleek yarn in the same design. Adds so much interest and fun.

I can’t wait to share the 6 new crochet designs with you.

Happy Crocheting,

Crochet Pattern Update

Good afternoon, fellow crocheters. I am making good headway on my crochet pillow patterns, and am feeling good about the launch of the line in June. In fact, I am currently at OSU for Mom’s weekend. My daughter Erin is a junior here. There are lots of fun events for moms and daughters. I even ran a 5K with Erin and about 300 others this morning. Need to have a little couch time before we go out tonight. I have a couple of crochet hours before I have to get ready. Can’t look like a frumpy Mom… 🙂

Have a great crochet day.

Crochet Hazards

Crochet Hazards? Are there really crochet hazards? Well, yes there are. OK, maybe not if you are crocheting a reasonable number of  of hours a day. But since I’m working like a crazy woman…or should I say crazy crochet pattern designer…I’m discovering crochet hazards. I say this with a laugh, but have any of you crochet addics worn a sore spot on your little finger, or stabbed yourself multiple times, with a needle, while adding detail? And of course, the only band aids in the house are Dora The Explorer. Thanks, Sara.

Truth is, I wouldn’t have it any other way. I’m having a blast, and can’t wait to get back at it. Bandaids and all!

Have a great crochet day.

Crochet Tips

Good morning, crocheters. I have a crochet tip that will help you add interest and texture to your crochet. Change hooks on different parts of the pattern.

When designing my Brite Babies TM patterns,  I use simple crochet stitches so that beginners can easily crochet  my designs. To add interesting texture, I change hook sizes on parts of the garment.  This technique gives the garment more interest and is very easy to do. Give it a try.
