#118 Designing Simple Crochet Patterns to Publish

Are you ready to design your first crochet pattern?

Well don’t worry, it’s much easier to write your first crochet pattern if you keep it nice and simple to start out! Basic shapes and stitches are the perfect starting point and if you would like to add some interest, throw in some colorful stripes!

In this episode of The BHooked Podcast you’ll hear from Krista from the blog, EasyCrochet.com (formerly known as Rescued Paw Designs). She shares just how easy the process of writing crochet patterns can be. This is pretty much her specialty and she shares all her tips in this episode!
