9 Mediterranean Patterns

Mediterranean

Happy Halloween, crocheters! I have a brief anecdote that inspired today's round-up of patterns. I woke up this morning in Chicago excited. Halloween has always been a very fun holiday at my house.

Each season has a different aesthetic. There’s the light and feminine for spring, bohemian and nautical for summer, and of course woodland and rustic for fall. While I can appreciate an aspect from each of these aesthetics, I’m particularly fond of fall. I’ve always been partial to combination of the darker tones of fall, especially […]
