Complete top 98 list here
Not just 1 but 2 of my patterns made it into the top 98 patterns of the year list!!
Berries in the Snow Scarf
The Berries in the Snow scarf was a fun one to design because I feel the yarn really spoke to me. I went to Joann's looking for a red and white combo to make a candy cane type hat pattern and WOW I had never seen redheart team spirit in person ( only in adds in crochet magazine's! Crochet Today! is my personal favorite! ) This is the White and Burgundy combo but looks more like a deep red to me. I started playing with it when I got home and thought hmm this would make a pretty Queen Annes Lace Scarf but I have made soo many of that pattern ( one of my go to for gifts!) so I wanted to play with it and make it twist like a potato chip scarf but still keep the lace type pattern. I was thinking peppermint twist for the name but I couldn't decide so I asked all the fans on the AFC facebook page and they named if for me!!! Berries in the snow is such a pretty name and I never would Have thought of it! This pattern also was PUBLISHED ina new AFC FREE  Ebook find and download here!


Queen Anne's Lace Scarf
I am a huge fan of Victorian type laces but I rarely spend more than a few hours on a project ( Can you tell by my patterns? most of them take a few hours to a weekend tops!)  SO a friend sent me a photo of this lace done in thread and wanted to know if I could make a scarf for her out of it.... It took me a week to get it LOL I had so much trouble with the 2nd,3rd, and 4th motif and getting them to hang like a scarf and NOT go into a circle!!! But I did and quickly I, my friend and many others ( It was my money maker for a while and if I started selling my work again I would make this scarf one of my staple do to the small yarn and time cost and high mark up value)

To give you a laugh check out this funny button I found online ( no clue where it came from or I would credit it)

Every other one***
*turn, slip stitch until you and in the ch1 space, ch2,1hdc,ch1,2hdc* repeat until you have the length desired, * it should stretch slightly to slide on and off your wrist.. **

sew the 2 ends together and weave in your tail at least 4 inches worth so it will not come undone.
