  • Sprinkle your home with some love with this Heart Cushion! I crocheted this with a worsted yarn in white and black to give it a minimalist touch since that's the theme I am aiming for.

But, Hey! You may add pompoms around the edge if you're feeling a little festive or may change your yarn colors to pastel for spring, bright colors for summer and orange-y colors for Autumn, or whatever color you wish to use! This graphgan pillow will never fail you and your space, the only limit is your imagination!

Head over to the link on my bio to directly get to the free pattern I posted on my blog at creamofthecropcrochet.com

  • In my previous post, I have shared with you how to crochet a sweater using the graphgan technique.  As they say, practice makes perfect.

Because this free Kid’s Heart Mittens Crochet Pattern actually match the previous sweater project! 
Get started with your little girl's matching outfit and OOTD and get over to Mermaidsandmonkeys.com and grab this free pattern. This project will really make you worth your time.

  • When I am home chilling on the couch, I usually pull my hair in a bun. It makes me feel more relaxed and comfortable until I realize I have to run to the grocery! Gaaaah! Who else can relate? 😂😂😂 That's when my Pretty in Pink Messy Bun comes in really handy! Ever-since I made one, I always make sure to have one in my car's front compartment so I could just jump in the car without worrying about my hair and tick my errand as done even on a lazy day! <3
