The new Owen Hat pattern has been released!!



I am so excited about this hat design! Learning new stitches that create a rich texture is something I really try to focus on, and I think this hat has a beautiful texture. I love that it is suitable for girls, as well as boys, which is sometimes hard to do. Sizes included in the pattern are from 0-3 months through adult.



Use two or more colors to show the texture even more. 



As an added bonus, I have included directions to create a different design/texture as shown in the photo above. 

You can purchase the pattern in my Ravelry and Craftsy shops for the introductory price of only $2.99 through Monday, Feb. 10th.

Dreaming of warmer weather!!

I don't know about you, but I am so over this cold weather. I'm longing for days when I can open the windows and enjoy the cool breeze, being able to take my grandson to the park, and going camping and biking with my hubby. What about you? Do you enjoy the winter months or are you ready for Spring?

How about a look at a few of my patterns to help shake off the winter blues? Here are a few of my favorites. :)

First is my Sailor Hat. This is probably my most popular pattern. Make one as a photo prop or as an accessory to a cute little sailor outfit.


My Little Man & Little Miss Sunhats are also fun hats for the warmer weather. The patterns each include 4 applique patterns. Your little one will be the cutest kid at the playground wearing one of these sunhats. ;)


My Peek-A-Boo Cocoon is an adorable photo prop and perfect for Spring. It makes me think of butterflies that will be fluttering around.


I hope you've enjoyed this little peek at a few of my patterns. All of my patterns can be found on Ravelry, Etsy, and Craftsy.

New designs AND a sale!!

Hope the New Year has started out great for you! Ours has been wonderful with the addition of our first granddaughter, Serenity, on January 2nd, and let me just tell you, we are in love! :)

I have released three new patterns this year. First was the Elise Wrist Warmers. These are very quick and easy to work up and the stitch creates a beautiful texture which is also very warm.


My next pattern that was released this month was the Elise Slouch. This is a fun hat that goes perfectly with the Elise Wrist Warmers and the Elise Cowl, all found in my pattern shops. Sizes include newborn through adult.


The latest pattern I released was the Serenity Hat, named after our sweet granddaughter. This hat also comes in newborn through adult. Here is our beautiful Serenity modeling for Nana for the first time. :)



I've decided to have a "Just Because" sale in my Ravelry shop
through tomorrow night, so you can stop by and pick up one of these (or any) patterns for 25% off. Enjoy!

Welcome to the new blog launch of Loops of Love!

I'm so glad you stopped by! Let me start by telling you a little bit about myself. :)

I started crocheting about 4 years ago. I knew several people having babies, so I started off making baby blankets. I think I made 6 blankets that summer. A couple of months later, my daughter, who was pregnant, asked me to make some baby hats and cocoons for my grandbaby. The rest is history. I was totally hooked on making those adorable little hats, diaper covers, cocoons, baby booties. Oh the cuteness was just too much. :)

Once I started, I couldn't stop. So what to do with all of those hats? I decided to start my own shop on Facebook the following Spring. One thing led to another, and soon, I began designing and selling my own patterns. Crocheting is a huge part of my life. I love creating new things, whether it be something practical for every day use or a photo prop for newborns. I have also enjoyed doing several craft fairs as well as selling my items in a local shop.

I hope you've enjoyed this little glimpse into what started my love for crocheting. Be sure to follow me so you won't miss out on sales and new releases. :)
