By Yarn and Needlework Contributor Stephanie from the blog Twilly 23

Cooler temperatures have started trickling in where I live. Fall is returning and so is the need for knitwear. A close fitting cap makes an excellent bike hat to wear under your helmet.

Though this pattern is for intermediate knitters, if you are a beginner knitter who wants to level up this is an excellent project to do so. Once mastered, cables are easy to do and are an impressive addition to knitted gifts.

Crocheted Flower Necklace

I’M BACK! And I am so excited to share with you this necklace using last week’s crochet flower pattern. This project merged my two current crafting loves right now, crochet and jewelry making. Don’t let it fool you, it really isn’t that difficult to make (I think I may be getting the hang of those jump rings…finally). I LOVE how it turned out, and I hope you do too!
