It’s time for April’s Designer Showcase! Once a month have one of my favorite designers share a bit about themselves, and then I follow it up by sharing my 5 favorite free patterns that they’ve designed! This month I’m excited to have Jennifer Dickerson, blogger, designer, and all around super sweet lady, from Fiber Flux! While she is perhaps best known for her scarves and cowls, she’s got fantastic patterns in a variety of categories. But first, let’s hear from Jennifer.

Knitted Mitts & Mittens: 25 Fun and Fashionable Designs for Fingerless Gloves, Mittens, and Wrist Warmers is a new knitting pattern book just out, by Amy Gunderson. And while you might think it’s an odd season to be thinking about mitts and mittens (unless you’re in the Southern Hemisphere) – let me tell you, they’re the perfect project for the warmer months! Small and light, they keep the yarn up off your lap, and you’ll be so far ahead of the game come the holidays. Plus, if you knit as slow as I do, you can use the extra time. So today, I get to give away a copy of this fab book to one lucky winner in the US! But first, let’s learn about the book and the author.
Is there anything worse than pouring a piping hot cup of coffee, tea, or cocoa… only to find it gets cold before you can even drink it? That’s where mug cozies come to the rescue! And of course, have a bit of fun while they’re at it. So here are 10 free crochet patterns for mug cozies!
Finding masculine crochet can be difficult – crochet was, after all, originally used to make lace! But if you look hard enough, it’s out there. In fact, I’ve got 10 Free Crochet Sweaters and Vests for Men to share with you today!
