Hello friends! Fawn Leach here with EL’S Baby Crochet. I wanted to share a quick little crochet story. When I first started to crochet almost three years ago I had just recently had a baby a few months prior and wanted to make her and my older daughter some hats and ear warmers.
Soon after learning to crochet I had some friends and family asking to buy my ear warmers. In my search for patterns I came across the Easiest Headwrap Ever.
This free pattern from Frayed Knot is just as the name suggests easy. I loved making them and everybody seemed to love wearing them. Fast forward a couple years and some major growth in my crochet world and I came across this absolutely adorable pattern for fingerless gloves titled The Ridgeline Gloves. I tell you, I could not make these things fast enough and had more than enough orders to keep me busy well into the winter season.
It wasn’t until I had already purchased the pattern and was looking through my Ravelry Library that I realized that the designer for the Easiest Headwrap Ever and the Ridgeline Gloves was one in the same. And to make things even better I had three more Frayed Knot patterns in my library, including the 15min Coffee Sleeve, which is my go to pattern for a quick and easy gift.
My daughter gave these cute coffee sleeves with a gift card to a local coffee shop to all of her teachers. They were a big hit. I don’t think it is a coincidence that I ended up with so many Frayed Knot patterns. They are gorgeous and have wonderful texture.
