Fall 2022 Collection

The Pebble Puff Stitch Crochet Hat is part of my Rocky Mountain Fall 2022 collection. These crochet patterns are inspired by nature and the beauty of the great Canadian Rocky Mountains.

It was an adventure to travel with my family this summer to photograph this collection. Each of my children contributed to making these designs extra special, and it was incredible to photograph each piece in the places that inspired them.

There are so many beautiful lakes and rocks throughout the Rocky Mountains. The large rock and tiny pebbles along the shores inspired the Pebble Puff Stitch Crochet Hat Pattern.

With its gorgeous flecks, Brava Tweed was the perfect yarn to capture the look of pebbles, and it comes in 6 beautiful shades perfect for Fall.
