I made this last fall but wanted to share it with you now, since it’s the perfect time to make your own! Continue reading “Cro-Shayley makes a Fish and Fisherman Hat”
My favorite time of year will soon be here. Everything from pastel colors, trees and flowers in bloom, warmer weather, Easter egg hunts to bunnies. Yes, bunnies!

Join-as-you-go crochet (also known as JAYGO) is important to add to your repertoire of crochet techniques if you love to make items from lots of small motifs but don’t enjoy the end stage of the project when you have to join the motifs and weave in all of those ends. With JAYGO, the motifs are all joined along the way, and although there are some ends to weave in, you can handle a lot of them as you go so that the finishing stage of the project is only a small part of the process. JAYGO is also great for people who like to take their projects with them on the go and don’t want to worry about losing motifs in the shuffle!
