For Day 4 in my 12 Days of Christmas, I’m stepping outside of the Yarn + Chai walls for a bit!
I spent some time this morning exploring the blogs of several designers that I admire, and it was so fun. As a designer myself, creating new patterns is my full time job and I very, very rarely get the chance to make something that someone else designed. There is so much beauty and creativity out there! And there’s more than enough room for all of it.
So with that said, for Day 4 I want to introduce you to some other blogs that I love, and share my favorite pattern from their collections. If you’ve been looking for modern patterns for a while, you’ll probably recognize these designers or their work, but if you’re new to the craft, you definitely don’t want to miss out on them! If you love my patterns, I think you’ll love theirs, too. Be sure to take a look around their blogs… you might find a new designer to add to your favorites list.
The Snowbound Pullover
by Make & Do Crew
You’ll find no shortage of beautiful wearables on Jess’ blog! This one caught my attention because it’s crocheted top-down, yoke style. I have yet to try that method myself!
Fleece Teddy + Bunny by All About Ami
This adorable pair of furry friends stood out right away because of the simple, timeless look they have. So precious. And you’re sure to love all of the gorgeous photography on Stephanie’s blog!
Braided Beanie by Cute As A Button Crochet
Using different textures in a project and keeping it modern is a delicate balance, and Esther does it really well. I love this beanie pattern and I spy some SC in FLO, a stitch I’m loving myself right now!
Snowy Mountains Baby Blanket by Daisy Farm Crafts
Tiffany and Hannah are the mother-daughter duo behind Daisy Farm Crafts and the huge library of blanket patterns it has! I’m absolutely in love with the design and colors in the Snowy Mountains Baby Blanket.
Which of these designers were you already a fan of? Did you discover anyone new, or find a gorgeous pattern to add to your list? I’d love to know!
