Hello and welcome to my website! So many of you have found me because of this adorable Hudson Bay stripes inspired sweater and are anxiously awaiting the pattern. First, I’d like to introduce myself a little because I’m feeling nervous about this pattern I’m going to share. I am not a crochet professional by any means! I started crocheting again a few years ago, (I did learn as a young girl) in hopes I’d become a grandma. If you’d like to read about that more specifically, go here. I started making blankets wishing that if I crocheted it, they would come. (No grandbabies for us yet, but other babies did come!)
Anyway, I shared all about the blankets and other items on Instagram where many asked about the patterns. So, I started this website and I’ve loved sharing! So many have made the gingham blanket, the chevron blanket, or the modern granny and tagged me to see your lovely work. And now, it feels like that every blanket made from these patterns is just one more prayer sent heavenward to help my daughter and her husband start their little family. So, I thank you! You probably had no idea it meant that much to me, but it does.
Here’s the important thing you need to know about this project, it’s only the second sweater pattern I’ve written in my whole life. As I was writing it, I wished there was a crochet school I could have attended to learn the proper way! But, I have found with my other patterns that if I explain it as if I am sitting next to you, it turns out okay.
I previously have made a baby blanket inspired by the Hudson’s Bay colors and in my research, I kept seeing a cardigan. After I finished the blanket, I thought I’d take a stab at it and as I think you’ll agree, oh my gosh isn’t it the cutest? I’m praying so hard this pattern will work for you because every little one is just going to be adorable wearing this!
