Simple Dress To Impress

    Today I have a new crochet summer dress pattern for ya! The Simple Dress to Impress is a beginner friendly project and perfect for those who want to give their very first crochet dress a try.

    It’s the first time I’ve made a crochet summer dress pattern. Actually, it’s the second time I’ve made a piece of clothing at all (my first project was this simple crochet cardigan).

    Lovely Luisa Shawl

    I am excited to share my new free crochet shawl pattern: the Lovely Luisa Shawl. This shawl has a beautiful texture created by the combination of two simple crochet stitches. The border is made out of little hearts. It is the third design in my new series of patterns dedicated to my extended family (people with the same condition as me).

    Get the free pattern below or purchase the ad-free PDF version of this pattern on Etsy and Ravelry. The PDF is designed for printing and this way you can support me!
