Super Crafty Sunday Link Up #3 - Etsy Gift Card Giveaway

Welcome to the 3rd Super Crafty Sunday Link Up!

Since last month's party, here's what I've been up to:
Women's Ripple Fingerless Gloves - Free Crochet Pattern 


This Week's Most Clicked Include:
Top: Retro Granny Square Coat from Atelier Marie-Lucienne - Crochet Inspiration with Basic Chart. Do you follow Marjan on Instagram? I have been following her through the process of making this coat. Though I did not know what she was working on through the follow along, I was so intrigued, especially with all the beautiful colors and patterns. This post shows the finished coat, and shows a drawing of the initial interpretation - a great technique! I think my favorite part about this coat is the pleat in the center back of the coat - don't see things like this very often in crochet. The zipper is also an excellent addition, especially to avoid additional stretching from putting on and taking off. This is such a beautiful project! Awesome job, Marjan!

Bottom: Waffle Stitch Mug Cozy from Raji's Craft Hobby - Free Crochet Pattern with Photo Tutorial. I love the idea of mug cozies! And this blue is just beautiful, paired with the texture of the waffle stitch - such a nice cozy! This free crochet pattern comes with a step by step photo tutorial. I will add that it doesn't specify the yarn used, and to me, it looks like an acrylic blend. I will caution that acrylic yarn is a synthetic material that can melt, so I always recommend cotton yarn for mug cozies. I will add that cotton does not have the same bounce back as acrylic, so you will need to add a little extra at first, as you won't be able to take stretch into consideration.

A Little From Helena:
Granny Square Poncho - Free Crochet Pattern. I am IN LOVE with this poncho! The squared neckline (I know there's another word for it that I can't think of right now...), the lacy appearance of the granny stitch, the flowy sides, and even the pop of the bright white. I can't wait to get me some yarn, and try this out! I would really love to see if I can turn this into a top with armholes. The poncho would also look great turned with the points down the front and back centers.

This Month's Giveaway is sponsored by ME! Alexandra of EyeLoveKnots. In honor of National Craft Month, one winner will receive a $30 gift card for Etsy. It will be purchased in USD. If you use a different currency, and you win, you will need to temporarily change your currency in your settings to use the gift card, then switch back after.

The Super Craft Sunday Link Up is hosted by EyeLoveKnots, and Crochet n Crafts, so when you link up to one of the blogs, it will show up on both! Double the exposure!! It will go live on the first Sunday of the month, and end the Thursday prior to the next month's party starting. Post times will vary, but you will be able to link up from midnight EST through midnight EST on the indicated dates - check the top of the Rafflecopter for more details.

Please share projects, recipes, and other posts that are family friendly, and not spammy. Feel free to reshare previously shared links, and links to giveaways and other link ups. Please make sure to link to a specific post, and not your blogs home page.
