Spring Fling Crochet Patterns - a new collection for Spring

Welcome Spring! Oh, how I've missed you! My all time favorite season of the year! Days are warming up, flowers are blooming, trees are budding, everything that is grey is turning to green!

To celebrate these wonderful days, I've created three lovely crochet patterns - sweaters to wear all Spring and Summer long.

Introducing: The Spring Fling Collection


Camden Summer Top Delicate stitching across the top creates a dressed-up look, while the cotton yarn fashions a breezy summer sweater.

Eloise Cardigan A sweet, heirloom style baby/girl’s cardigan to keep your little one warm on chilly days. A puff stitch is combined with basic stitches to give this cardigan a treasure-able look and feel. 

Make it short or long sleeve in her favorite colors.

Breezy Summer Vest Dress up a summer outfit with a fun, flowy summer vest, or wear it as a gorgeous swimsuit cover up. An open stitch pattern keeps this summer vest cool to wear and quick to crochet.

Crochet tutorial video included to teach you the lower ribbing stitch.

Welcome Spring with one of these lovely new Spring sweater crochet patterns.

Yarn Review: Balance by O-Wool

Yarn Review of O-Wool's Balance yarn by Little Monkeys Design

Who doesn't fall in love with a super soft skein of yarn? I know I can never have too many - on my shelf, in my lap or on my hook!

When I started my journey of crocheting with all natural fiber yarns, I discovered O-Wool. I've been using her yarns in my crochet pattern collections ever since.

I created a fun yarn review video of O-Wool's Balance yarn to show you this yarn up close!

The Ultimate "Netflix & Chill" Crochet Pattern Super Bundle

Crochet Patterns - Ultimate Netflix & Chill Crochet Pattern super Bundle

The Ultimate "Netflix & Chill" Crochet Pattern Super Bundle

If there are two things I fall back on to help me unwind after a long day, it’s Netflix and Crochet. My absolute favorite thing to do when I relax is to pick up my hook or throw on my latest guilty pleasure.

Then, I had a stroke of genius and realized that I could combine the two. I love learning new patterns and difficult stitches because I find it to be challenging, rewarding, and it keeps me on my toes.

But, intricate patterns often involve a lot of concentration and they aren’t exactly ideal for multi-tasking. That’s why I’m so excited to introduce The Ultimate “Netflix & Chill” Bundle.

How to Crochet the Chevron Stitch

Crochet tutorial video - How to crochet the Chevron Stitch - by Angela Plunkett of Little Monkeys Designs and Mastering Crochet

I love to create How to crochet videos! A customer recently purchased the Chevron Pillow Cover crochet pattern and then realized she wasn't sure how to crochet the chevron stitch.

I created this short video for her and it helped a lot! The video, along with several other crochet tutorial videos, are on my YouTube Channel. I wanted to make sure you saw it.
