You Made This! – Simply Collectible crochet patterns
I've been so grateful and humbled to receive your images from my Coraline on Sabbatical Traveling line. Everything you guys are making makes me smile and I want to see more. I love seeing the colorways you choose as well, so keep them coming! I have a good amount of them to share for the next edition as well. (I took a little break over the summer to brush up on my sewing skills, so know that you will be seeing some sewing projects come up on SimplyCollectibleCrochet.com in the future.
This time around, I'm seeing some made with the new cake yarns which were not available at the time I designed these patterns and you must admit the look is just as cool!

There are quite a few in the lineup from over the summer so if you don't see yours just yet, please be patient. Another edition of You Made This! will be coming soon. Keep those pics coming!

Debbie Herndon make my Adorable Cupcake Lovers Beanie and says, “I followed the pattern exactly for the first one. I think next time I will go up a hook size because I tend to crochet tight. It's so easy to make. Less than an hour and it's adorable.” Well, you did a great job, Debbie! Thank you so much for sharing your project.

Done in less than 2 hours (closer to 1)” Great idea, Dawn. I'd love to hear what chain you started with for the cup cozy. Feel free to add it to the comments and I can add it here. Such a cute set. That would be great as a craft fair project, too.
Here's what Angelique Loeffler from AngeliqueCrafts says and an image of the one she made:
“When I found Simply Collectible's ‘Coraline in San Francisco‘ cowl pattern on Pinterest I instantly became excited! I was looking for a quick and easy to work pattern for a bulky yarn. This pattern not only fit my criteria, but it also had great versatility in how to wear and drape the cowl! Thank you, Celina, not only for posting this pattern but also for sharing it for free!” – https://simplycollectiblecrochet.com/2015/01/coraline-in-san-francisco-free-cowl-crochet-pattern/
Marcy made my Striped Stash Buster Blanket crochet pattern. She makes a GREAT point. ALWAYS check the pattern for the completed size of the blanket- especially if you really want a full bedspread. Thanks, Marcy!- “Well, I followed it as written until I realized it was too short [for a full], so I added identical borders (at right angles) on each end to lengthen it and then made a whole-afghan border all the way around to tie it together. In summary, though, I had so much yarn that it became big enough for a King-sized bed, though my picture is shown on a Queen. Full story is at my blog. I liked that I could use up so much random yarn and that it was fairly easy, although I kept messing up the sc/hdc cycle (I am too used to using dc). My only suggestion would be to figure out what the best starting-chain length SHOULD be, since 72 is not really long enough for a bed spread.” Glad you figured that out and solved your problem! It's really pretty. Success!
