The road to Mrs. started with a photo shoot for Crochet Chiq


So do any of you remember this post?  from over 5 years ago?

My long time friend Harold was kind enough to model a beanie for me. We ended up going to downtown Disney to take some photos and grabbed some dinner while we were there. Well If you haven't been to Down Town Disney at Christmas at night let me fill you in, it is extremely beautiful and romantic! That evening I only took 2 photos because I was all nervous and distracted by "My maybe he is more than a friend", friend! At the end of the night I think he stood talking to me at by back door for almost 30 minutes and I thought he was going to kiss me! I found out later he was thinking about it but was also afraid of being slapped! We ended up hanging out a lot and had a lot of almost kiss moments and then he finally asked me out for our first official date! Problem was it was for New Year's Eve on the Queen Mary and as a single mom of 2 I had nothing to wear and very little money. I found a great sleeveless dress  on sale and decided to make a shawl in 2 days to wear!! EEKK! I was so stressed and grateful my job was to demo at Michaels so I worked on the shawl at work!! A few months later I wore the shawl to the CHA Craft show and RED HEART YARNS bought the PATTERN!!!! View that post HERE or see the The Crochet Crowd how to video HERE! WOW when Mikey covers your pattern you feel pretty amazing! I never would have made this particular design If Harold hadn't asked me out to a super fancy place! And yes we had our first kiss that night! If you look around I mention him a few other times on the blog and he even designed and crocheted a granny square here !
This blog was like my wing man and I am so happy to share with you that we tied the KNOT in February
and couldn't be happier! If you are a romantic his mom did get the proposal on video and I have that here .

Now that things calm calm down I can't wait to get back to designing! What type of patterns would you like to see most? Comment below and let me know!

I wrote this pattern at the request of AFC Check  them out to see all the other amazing patterns and videos they have!!!


Hello everyone, Have you noticed how many celebs are donning crochet items? I've noticed a lot of crochet shorts out there, why buy them when you can make them with this free pattern? The other upside to making them is you can make them the length, color and size you want!! I will write out directions for a small adjust them as you go for your size. For example to start  do FDQC until you are from one hip to the other and then add a few extra stitches for the seam. 
To start this pattern is worked int twp pieces the front and back. They will look like undies until we get to the legs

Use crochet hook size J
Use any 4 ply yarn 
1-Start by doing Foundation quadruple crochet 50 2-sc in each stitch for a total of 50
