  • Might change the title to include crochet as several of these (very cute) projects are not knit.

    If you could add direct links to the knitting patterns featured above, it would be extremely helpful.

    #6 looked really interesting, but the link provided was for the bloggers Instagram page and not the pattern. When I followed the blogger’s link on Instagram, it led me to her blog and, again, not the pattern. Her blog was really nice, but after 10 minutes of searching I still couldn’t find the featured pattern. I eventually just gave up, went to to find a similar pattern. So please could you start including direct links to the patterns you feature?
