Crochet Quote

knit crochet hat pattern

“Time and time again I’m reminded of the beauty in simplicity. Don’t get me wrong – I love a complex, gorgeous, time-consuming project as much as the next girl….but those aren’t the ones that I end up coming back to over and over again. I’m much more likely to return to a simple, sweet, and quick pattern that I can whip out in just a few hours.” – Melody’s Makings

Crochet Art
