I've long been obsessed with all things hexagon. And if you've been around here since the beginning and my Autumn Walks Triangle Scarf, you'll know I'm a big fan of the puff stitch. It was only natural that these things would come together in a design at some point, and lo and behold, the Bumble Puff Beauty Biscuit was born!
I know with the crazy COVID-19 going around right now, markets are probably the last thing you want to think about, IF they even happen this year. But while we are only at the beginning of this corona virus mess, the fact is that it won't last forever. So whether you're prepping for just in case markets this year, planning ahead for next year, or you're just bored at home with all this social distancing or a self-imposed quarantine, I've put together the ultimate list of Spring & Summer crochet makes for markets.
I thought I would share two different styles of coasters I made from working up to certain rounds of the original Marigold Market Bag Mandala portion. I used two different weight yarns to achieve completely different looks, so I'm including directions for both versions here for you!
If you have been around for a while, you might know that I am a big fan of the Puff Stitch. Give me all the lovely, puffy, texture! So today, I'm going to share with you how to make this fun stitch, and then you'll be able to start working on your own puffy projects!
I'm here today with a quick crochet tutorial for you for one of my favorite stitches. Who is ready to learn the Three Double Crochet Cluster (3dcCl)?

The Kiss Stitch was originally introduced in my XOXO Throw pattern, worked in flat rows, which is a fantastic way to practice the stitch. But if you want to use this stitch pattern for other fun projects made in the round, the beginning and end of the round will vary from the way rows begin and end when worked flat.
I, personally, HATE working into a foundation chain. Sometimes it's unavoidable, but when you're working a solid row of single, double, or half-double crochet stitches as your first row, you'll be happy to know that there's another option! Foundation stitches!
The Magic Circle, also known as the Magic Ring, is a fun little trick you can use to avoid that little gap in the center of your work when crocheting in the round. It’s magic because you just pull the tail when you’re finished with your first round and it will cinch completely closed! This is a bit tricky when it's brand new, but once you have mastered it, you'll never look back. Don't be intimidated, you can do this!
