Fav Quick Knit Patterns (Market Prep Series Part 2)

I Hope Part 1 of this Market Prep Series was helpful to all of those who crochet. This installment will feature quick and east knit patterns. Now I am by no means an expert knitter, I would consider my skill set pretty beginner and all of these patterns worked up beautifully. All of these patterns once again use chunky yarn (I clearly have an obsession).


Linden Hat

This hat by Whirls and Purls has one of the most beautiful textures ever! It is amazing and only uses the knit & purl stitch so definitely beginner friendly. This was one of the first knit patterns I made that had purls in it and was honestly intimidated at first, but it is such a quick and easy pattern to follow!!!!

Meet Your Maker-Sunday Morning Glassworks

This week on MYM we have Emily from Sunday Morning Glassworks.  Emily makes lovely stained glass artwork that is inspired by nature. If you are looking for a beautiful gift for someone these works of art are perfect.

Introduce yourself and your business.

My name is Emily and Sunday Morning Glassworks is my stained glass business. It’s inspired by nature and all things that light up the soul. In the past I’ve sold tons of small sun catchers, but I want to start moving towards bigger home projects.

How did you launch your business & what made you want to start a small business?

I started my business right after I finished taking a stained glass class at my local art center. I didn’t really know I wanted to start a business until it happened and all of the sudden I was releasing things to sell! I sold to a lot of friends and family first. I quickly got on etsy and was surprised to have them feature me on Instagram a few months later which really got my name out there and my account flo…

Fav Quick Crochet Patterns (Market Prep Series Part 1)

With Fall and winter market season just around the corner I know a lot of makers like myself are in full market prep mode. I thought i'd share with you some of my favorite quick and easy crochet patterns which are perfect for market prep. All of these patterns use chunky yarn which helps them work up quickly! I love the stitch definition a lighter weight yarn makes but a nice bulky weight 6 yarn will always be my #1.
