Crochet Patterns Released In 2018

As 2018 draws to a close, I thought I would take a moment to post an easy-access list of all the free crochet patterns I released in 2018, just in case you missed any! It has been a crazy year for my family, so I did not post as much as I’d hoped, but I’m happy to say I still published more patterns than the previous year! I will call that progress! If you’d like to hear a little about my crazy year, scroll down below the links. But for those of you who just want to get to the patterns, I’ll put them first.

I am looking forward to more creating in 2019!

My Crazy 2018:

Well, I was really plugging along in early 2018, when my husband was offered a wonderful new job in a nearby town. So, in March of 2018 we started to get our house ready to sell. Home renovations, purging and storage units, here we come:

Our completely gutted bathroom… Because any time you take something apart, you find something else that also needs fixing!

By June we finally had our home on the market and were taking offers while simultaneously looking for a new home! Packing, packing and more packing. Paperwork. Signing, signing and more signing. By the end of July we had closed escrow on both houses and moved all of our stuff into our new home. Loading, driving, cleaning, cleaning cleaning.

After one night in our new home, we were evacuated due to the Carr Fire in Redding, CA.

The scene behind our home the night we evacuated.

Thankfully, our new home was spared and after about a week we were able to return. Here is the happy hubby and I when we were able to get safely back into our new home:

About three weeks after getting back into our new home, school started up for our three boys. It was a big change for all of them, but our middle son (who has special needs), struggled especially. By the end of October we made the decision to pull him out of the traditional classroom and see if homeschooling would be a better option for now.

We’ve been doing that for a few months at the time of this post. It is a big time commitment on my end, but for now it is worth it to relieve some of the stress on our son. We will see how it goes and take it one step at a time.

I look forward to spending time in 2019 finding our new routine and hopefully recuperating from the craziness of 2018! Maybe I’ll even finish unpacking!  And I’ll do my best to fit in as much crocheting as possible!!

Happy New Year from my little family to yours!


    1. I will have to see if there is a way to change it. Unfortunately it is a built in aspect of the website theme I use. I have heard some people say if they copy and paste it into a word document it darkens.

      1. Thank you for your comment. There should be a way to change it as the grey is just too light. Copy and pasting into Word is a thought but takes too much time.
