You are probably seeing lots of the V-Stitch around lately as it is such a simple, yet pretty, stitch. It's great as a stashbuster. And it doesn't require any thought so it's super rhythmic and relaxing to work, I think. So with the holidays approaching and decorating on the brain, I decided to make up an easy little Placemat and Napkin Ring pattern with color (surprised?), whimsy, and versatility.
But check out this sample made by my tester Brittany of R&L Crochet Co.
In a single neutral color it makes the design so elegant and clean--plus those little kidlets are so stinkin' cute, huh? (That fingernail polish in different colors sooo reminds me of when my Lizzie was little. Those were cherished times!)
I love the pom edging. I love the rhythm of this stitch. And I love the versatility. The pattern includes a multiples number to make it any size you want--think scarf, table runner, blanket or afghan, lovey for a little one, etc. One of my testers gave it to her babe as a blanket for a stuffed animal with the napkin ring as a bracelet. Cute, huh?
You can find the pattern in my Ravelry or Craftsy shops as a FREE download. Happy Hooking, and if you make something lovely from it, please feel free to share on my Facebook page here. I love to see the wonderful things other hands and hearts can do with my patterns.
I've got soooo many new designs in my head, two in testing, and three on my hook. Anyone else feel like you just need more time in the day or wish you could crochet faster!?
Be well. Be at peace. Eat your vegetables and wear your seatbelt. (Hey, I'm a mother.)
