Pictured: Winter Mosaic Pillow and the Warm Lights Pillow

The winds have shifted and fall is here which means it’s time to get serious thinking about the end of year gifting and giving. Whether you’re someone who is not really into the holidays or you’re someone who has had your home decked out in winter holiday decorations since August, your friends at WeCrochet are here for you.

In this episode of the WeCrochet Podcast, we talk about our brand new holiday crochet patterns, and get some advice on swatching in the round from designer Brenda K.B. Anderson.

First, Katelyn joins Sara and Heather to talk about the release of Issue 5 of WeCrochet Magazine and then share their favorite projects from the Warm Wishes collection. This collection is full of brightly-colored holiday decor items from ornaments to festive pillows and throws.

Next Sara and Katelyn chat about the 12 Weeks of Gifting, free crochet patterns we are releasing every Tuesday.

Finally, designer Brenda K.B. Anderson joins Heather again to give her tips for swatching in the round. We also discover what the crochet mascot would look like if crochet had a mascot.

WeCrochet Podcast Episode 9: Enter the Unicorn-Verse

What could be more fun than talking to kids, talking about unicorns and crochet? On this week’s episode Heather and Sara check in and talk about all the different ways to engage your young person with crochet. Many people are having to stay at home with their children more than they had in the past so hopefully this discussion will help. Heather connects crocheting and doodling in a way that will help ease you into to joys of crocheting at home with others.

Since our team is working from home, we each interview a special guests to talk to us about crochet. First Heather talks to her 10 year old, Gideon, about her job and they brainstorm projects to do at home as a family. Next Producer Sarah chats to her 2 year old, Flower, about her job and crochet. Then Kerry talks to her 17 year old, Lauren, about how she first learned to crochet and what advice does she have for parents trying to teach their kids to craft at home.

Heather and Regan dive into the newly released softie patterns, or amigurumi projects, and even offer tips to how to improve upon what the patterns say. They also give a behind-the-scenes peak at the origins of this photo:
