Cook ups with friends, dancing at your niece’s wedding, real freakin’ life hugs, the IRL (in real life) season has begun! With that comes more occasions to gift loved ones, more netflix and knitting downtime needed to recharge, and a whole lotta DIY home decor to play hostess with the mostess. Of course, we’re taking heed, we’re still sewing facemasks aplenty, finding cute ways to carry our essentials - hello sausage dog sanitizer cover, and lots of us, including the LoveCrafts crew, are working from home if we can (rocking the WFH wardrobe, naturally). Read on for the best of the new in knitting patterns and latest crochet patterns.

The coolest crop on the block
Lindsey at justtheworsted has designed this retro cool, crochet cropped tee in sizes XS-5X. Made in cotton or acrylic DK yarn, the pattern includes instructions for colour changing charts that even confident beginners can follow along with!
The Block Party Tee is a playful design that conjures up the colorful festivity of a city coming to life in the summertime — with the jangle of ice cream trucks, the sensation of an ice cold drink in your hand, and balmy evenings on the stoop." Lindsey of justtheworsted
