This week I have been sluggish. I am trying to get the year planned out and organized, and it resulted in less articles appearing on Whistle and Ivy. I am so excited about what I have planned out for the year and I hope I can create content that you absolutely LOVE. This granny square cowl is a pattern that I designed about 18 months ago, but I am republishing it here so you can find it easier. It is very cozy, and quite easy to whip up, especially if you love making granny squares.

Time to double-down on hat making. We had an extremely mild fall here, and it has spoiled me a bit. I stepped outside this morning to take The Boy to school and wowza! It is cold out there. Time for a new hat. I randomly pulled out these colors to make this Winter Peaks Hat and I am IN LOVE. Don’t they look beautiful together?

These cute crochet woodland animal hats feature a cute plaid and gingham color scheme! They are worked from the bottom up and forming the ears is simply done by closing the top flat and cinching the ears a bit. The pattern includes sizing for the whole family
One of my favorite patterns from Plaid Week this year was my Plaid Fox Hat. It was a vision that came together beautifully and I was so happy with how the pattern turned out. When I shared in on Facebook, I had a few people throw out ideas for other animals. I loved the idea of a whole woodland animal set, so I got to work designing other Plaid Woodland Animal Hats. The Raccoon and Deer were simple enough, but the Bear was a bit tricky. Bears have roundish ears so I had to do a bit of experimenting. Luckily, and idea of how to make the ears round came to me, and it worked out beautifully!

Septembers here are pretty darn unpredictable. They could be chilly. They could be like a second August. They could start out like August and end like November. So we need to be prepared!
A couple of years ago, I had a friend reach out to me about some crochet hats. She was making some for an elementary school class and wanted to make sure each child in the class had one. I decided to whip up a pattern that was perfect for chilly school morning and fast to make. This simple Schoolyard hat is perfect for both girls and boys and is an easy pattern for when you need a hat fast.
I am working on a very special post, ya’ll! You guys need to get excited, because I get asked a certain question A LOT. And honestly, I don’t know the answer, so I decided to find it out. I am working behind the scenes to figure it out (the question and answer coming next week!), but in the meantime I made a quick and fun pattern for crochet slippers. These 30 minute chunky crochet slippers really only take 30 minutes to make, (probably less for you, I am a slow crocheter) and the chunky yarn makes them so very comfortable.
I just love that hot pink color. The gray and hot pink match perfectly with this Autumn Frost Slouchy.

I’ve struggled with my crojo this week. Summers are hard for me! Plus, my old iPod also died a few weeks ago. It was a 5th generation classic, so yeah, it was about 12 years old. I snagged another one and have spent that last few days putting all my music on it (some of it needed to be ripped from CDs… ‘memba those?). I have forgotten about some of it and it’s crazy how listening to an old song can transport you back in time. It’s been very fun and nostalgic. Even though my mind was focused on getting all my music transferred, I was able to complete an itty, bitty project anyway, this Crochet Flip Flop Keychain! These cuties are made with cotton fingering yarn, and are so fun to mix and match colors.Click for more
I think we can collectively agree that crochet is awesome. It’s therapeutic, it’s useful, it’s fun, it passes the time…need I go on? Today is National Knit or Crochet in Public Day, which is an awesome holiday in my opinion (although I’m sure you don’t need a holiday to crochet in public, ammi right?). This cute Crochet in Public Bag is something that I thought up some time ago, but today is a fitting day to finally write and publish the pattern. This bag is perfect for a quick project on the run, especially if you are somewhere where you can’t sit or hold your yarn in your lap. Take your crochet literally everywhere.Click for more
This darling easy crochet pouch case is easy to make and so lovey for any occasion! Use it as a clutch or for a case for your notions. The yarn for this post was provided by Wool and the Gang. Thank you!
I guess I have been on a crochet clutch kick lately (check out my Color Pop Clutch, Tide Pool Clutch and Everia Clutch). Crochet clutches are on trend right now, and summer is the perfect time to make them, since you don’t really want to snuggle under a cozy blanket in the summer heat. This Crochet Cindy Case turned out absolutely gorgeous. I was working on it while visiting family this weekend and everyone commented on how pretty it is, and what a lovely texture it has.

I am pretty excited to share this Crochet Air Plant Pot with you today. I was gifted a large air plant last month and it’s sort of been sitting on the widow sill next to my cactus since then. I haven’t given it too much thought until I saw this fabulous Crochet Air Plant Jellyfish by One Dog Woof. So cute, right? Although an air plant will be perfectly happy and healthy sitting in the bright windowsill, it is a bit fun to make a crochet pot for it.
This week came so quickly! Today I am sharing the third and last clutch I designed as a possible accessory for the Women’s Choice Awards, I call it the Everia Picot Clutch Crochet Pattern. I am taking photos and trying to get packed for the trip and I admit, I am pretty nervous. I am a born and bred small town girl and I hope I don’t feel too out of place in shiny and beautiful Hollywood! I still haven’t decided which clutch to take to the event, so I was really hoping you will help me. I have three total: Today’s clutch, the Color Pop Clutch and the Tide Pool Wrap Clutch.
Which is your favorite?
This cotton yarn was perfect for this clutch! It’s easy to meet a gauge with it, since it’s a bit finer than other 100% cotton yarns, and it’s easy on the fingers. Does anyone else get a raw spot when working with cotton? I didn’t have that problem with this yarn. It has a lovely drape as well, I might have to design a summer shawl with this yarn.

Hey everyone! I wanted to thanks so much for you encouragement and excitement on my behalf! Yesterday, I announced that has Red Heart invited me to Women’s Choice Awards. It is such an honor to be invited by amazing women to celebrate amazing women. I wanted to involve my people (stay tuned for my first-ever Facebook Live), and let you vote on which clutch I should take to the event. Yesterday I shared the free crochet pattern for my Color Pop Clutch. Today, I am sharing this gorgeous Tide Pool Clutch.
Thanks to Red Heart for providing the yarn for this post!
You guys. I have some pretty exciting news. I’ve been keeping it quiet while I get things ready, but am now able to share with you: I have been invited by Red Heart Yarns to attend the Women’s Choice Awards! I cannot even explain how flattered I am to have the opportunity to be surrounded by so many amazing, fierce women who have done so much in the advancement of their fields and in creating a better world for us all. It’s also beyond exciting to be noticed by America’s favorite yarn brand! This event honors extraordinary women who are making great and wonderful changes in the world, and it also supports the non-profit group I Am That Girl, whose mission is to empower girls to find their self-worth and gain confidence in themselves and in their potential. Red Heart has been voted America’s Most Recommended Yarn Brand, and I am beyond thrilled to be able to celebrate with them at this fun event.
Hey friends! Today I am bringing you an easy and simple free crochet pattern. I had an idea for a wrap clutch a few weeks ago, and it turned out just as pretty as I imagined. The tassel is an absolutely must! This wrap clutch is a perfect beginner project and will be a finished item that you will love using.
The idea for today’s free crochet pattern is brought to you by my husband Dallas! He was a real whiz with a hacky sack back in the the day (still is!). It’s funny, and really cool, how you can be married to someone for almost a decade but still learn little things about him/her. He can keep this crochet hacky sack going for a while, and it’s fun to watch him teach our 5 year old his mad skills! I was never good at it, but it’s fun to stand around in a circle laughing, chatting and kicking around a foot bag (fun fact: “foot bag” is the generic term for a Hacky Sack).
These blocks make a sweet toy for baby. Light enough to be stacked or thrown, these soft playthings are safe for little ones and add charm to any nursery. Place a jingle bell or sound maker in the interior for a playful noisemaker!

Happy weekend friend! We are off to get dirty and enjoy the beautiful sunshine, but I wanted to share this adorable Crochet Gerbera Daisy Wreath pattern with you before we head off. This pattern is a lovely weekend project, and you could have a bright, pretty wreath on your door by Sunday morning.
Last week I shared these pretty Gerbera Daisies, and I knew they would be perfect for a fun, springtime wreath.
CROCHET GERBERA DAISY WREATH
Start by making several Crochet Gerbera Daisies. You can find a full tutorial here. I made 11 total for my wreath. Be sure you don’t skip the blocking step when you finish your flowers! You want your flowers to lay flat and pretty, and blocking fixes the intense curl they have when you finish crocheting them.
Once your flower are done, set them on your wreath the way you would like them to lay. They look very pretty overlapping. You can glue them in place with your hot glue gun. Be sure to put a small dab behind the petals in the top front, as gravity will pull on them when your wreath is hung, and they will want to flop down.
Next, wrap your burlap ribbon around the remaining bare wreath. Glue it in place on the back.
How simple was that?! Those bright, pretty colors make my happy. I love how it looks next to my door.

Happy March, Beautiful! I live in Utah, where the weather is incredibly unpredictable. I am sitting here typing this post, while the warm breeze blows into my office and it’s so heavenly. And would you believe me if I told you I just learned how to work the C2C technique? Well I did. And it’s so. much. fun. My head is bubbling over with ideas for graphs (I am wrapping up designs for a CAL coming SOON, so stay tuned!) and these Crochet Rainbow C2c Arm Warmers were something that I thought of and decided to try.
