I have really been enjoying the seasonal crochet pattern collections from Annie’s Signature Designs. Much like the world of fashion, these are collections of patterns that fit a theme and are released periodically throughout the year. The designs are timeless in the sense that they can be used again and again and really do translate to additional seasons across the years but each collection as a whole evokes the mood of the season in which it is released.

This is the next post for the Endangered Animal Crochet Project, through which I hope to raise awareness about endangered animals and offer you ways to do the same. There will sadly be several different posts for the apes since so many of them are endangered; we will begin today with the orangutan.

April is National Pecan Month. This yummy treat is often overlooked but is honored this month as a way to raise awareness of how it can be a great snacking option that fits into many diets and lifestyles. Pecans can easily be taken on the go and they last a long time so you can always have a bag in your purse or project bag. And if you love to make crochet food then you can also use pecan crochet patterns!
When you add crochet to your bicycle, you make it more personal. Your choice to use colorful crochet or a sophisticated simple color palette says a lot about who you are. It makes your bike easier to find in a crowd. And it will make you smile each time you set off for a ride. These bicycle crochet patterns include crochet skirt guards, bike seat covers and more.
I have really enjoyed the seasonal collections from Annie’s Signature Designs which launched with Summer Love, continued with Autumn Bliss and now includes the Spring Breeze collection. This series of patterns comes from lead designer Lena Skvagerson, who I’ve been lucky enough to interview for each collection, including this new one.
