This time of year is tough in Northern Ontario. The mornings are below freezing, but the afternoons warm up nicely, although there is still a definite chill to the wind. Perfect poncho weather! You can slip it easily over your head, they are cinch to layer over clothing, and everyone loves the way they fan out when you twirl. Who can argue with that?!

The Ragged Falls Cocoon Shrug Pattern combines the fun and easy stitch pattern of the Ragged Falls Poncho and Scarf patterns, along with the simplicty of cocoon shrug construction! I am hopeful that Spring will be here before we know it and this kind of layering piece will become a wardrobe staple. It's long shot up here in Northern Ontario, but a girl can hope, right? Layered over long sleeves in colder temps, or to keep shoulders warm when worn over a tank, the Ragged Falls Cocoon Shrug is exactly what your little girl needs!
The Lucky Penny Crochet Poncho Pattern in Child sizes is here!!! I seriously love ponchos, don't you? They are perfect year round. Not sure what I mean? When Spring is here and it's too cold for a t-shirt, but too warm for a coat, a poncho has you covered! When you just need something over your shoulders to beat the chill from the a/c, what about a poncho? And let's not forget about a poncho, perfect for the transition back to colder temps. This of course leads me to the Lucky Penny Poncho. The perfect cold weather friend. The squishy yarn, dense fabric, and cushiony cowl make this a go-to design for Winter.

I purchased some beautiful Merino Superwash in this lovely lilac color at my Local Yarn Store. As soon as I put hook to yarn, this gorgeous Bunny Bonnet began to take shape! I love the texture of the Bonnet as well as the little bunnies that play along the Brim! I think the timing is just perfect with both the first day of Spring and Easter just around the corner!

Crochet an adorable Crochet Octopus for a Preemie, an older child or even for yourself! Backstory: I read an article about how infants in the intensive care unit find comfort wrapping their fingers into the curly tentacles of a crochet octopus. It reminds them of the umbilical cord in their mother's womb! I loved this but was not a fan of the crochet octopus I found in the story, so I designed my own! Please note: if you are concerned about the safety of safety eyes, please embroider instead. To donate, please contact your local hospital to get their requirements.
