Mason Jar Cozy  |  Free Crochet Pattern by Little Monkeys Crochet (lwww.littlemonkeyscrochet.com)

This past fall, our family moved from Indiana to Michigan. We purchased a cute little house (our first!) and settled in just in time to see the huge tree in the front yard shed its fire-red leaves, and before we'd even unpacked everything, the winter chill was moving in. So you'll understand what I'm saying [...]

Maribel Cowl & Boot Cuffs Crochet Pattern  |  a free crochet pattern by Little Monkeys Crochet

This is a matching set of patterns that I'm very excited about! In fact, I'm officially declaring this set my "Favorite Winter Accessory of 2014". (Last year it was the Chunky Ribbed Cowl.) I made my samples in linen and light gray, because I'm a sucker for neutral colors. But, this set would look great in [...]

Maribel Boot Cuffs  |  free crochet pattern by Little Monkeys Crochet

Boot cuffs have become increasingly popular over the past couple of years, and the trend doesn't seem to be slowing down a bit.
