Hello there!  How are you doing?  I hope you had a good Easter, in spite of the current circumstances.  I myself enjoyed some much needed laughter with my family.  I forgot how good it feels to just laugh!  I hope you find something to laugh at, even if it's yourself.  Trust me, I do that a lot!  

In the spirit of mental health, I wanted to let you know about the Kisses N Hugs Cowl!  It's another pattern I created that is easy, cute and a new piece of the Kisses N Hugs Collection!  I just named it that...I didn't realize it would be a collection, but I just really like the texture!  I'm working on a hat and a bracelet with the same stitches so they'll be coming soon!

The Kisses N Hugs Cowl

It's so Easy!

The cowl is worked in rounds and is made up of puff stitches and single crochet X stitches.  I included links to video tutorials if you need to see how the stitches are worked.  
All you'll need is:
  • ​Size J/6.00 MM crochet hook
  • 1 skein of Caron Simply Soft (#4 weight) or comparable yarn
  • Scissors
  • Yarn Needle for weaving in your ends

Perfect for Spring!

Let's face it, Spring is not always warm!  In a single day here in Central/Upstate New York, we can start in the 20's and end up in the 70's!  We may or may not get snow, and that can last into May!!  We have to be prepared!  If you're anything like me, as long as your neck and hands are cozy, it's mostly good!  The pattern uses a #4 weight yarn, so this cowl is just right for those in between days of Spring!

    Join me for Crochet Fun!!

The Kisses N Hugs Cowl pattern will be live on Ravelry on  4/17/20!

Ya know what else?  This would make an awesome Mother's Day gift!  I made one for my mom for her birthday in March.  She loved it!  
I hope you grab your copy of the pattern and enjoy!  Please reach out to say hi and keep in touch!  As always, I'd love to hear about what you think!  

Please stay safe and take care of you!
Sending you positive energy,
​Krista ☮

<![CDATA[KISSES N HUGS FINGERLESS GLOVES]]>Mon, 09 Mar 2020 16:15:05 GMThttp://crochetandpositivity.com/premium-patterns/kisses-n-hugs-fingerless-gloves
Hi!  I know Valentine's Day is over, yes, I really do, but I just had to say a little something about it.  I get soooo excited over this holiday for a couple reasons.  First of all, I love Love, whether it's the love of a spouse, a significant other, a partner, a best friend, a child, I could name a million.  Love is one of the most powerful forces in the world!  It can heal a broken heart, mend differences, and bind us together.  Yes, I know we should celebrate this all the time, not just on one day of the year, BUT, it's one day a year when us "gushers" are not judged so harshly for gushing!  
Another thing I love about Valentine's Day is HEARTS!  I mean, who doesn't love hearts!  They are the universal symbol of love and affection.  If you love hearts too, come check out some cute heart coasters at my Etsy shop by following this LINK!
And finally, Valentine's Day brings to mind two more of my favorite things, HUGS and KISSES!  ❌⭕❌⭕.  That's what inspired the Kisses & Hugs Fingerless Gloves pattern!  Alternating rows of cute little kisses, then cute little hugs!  These gloves are super easy and work up quickly!  I'm not a super fast crocheter and I can make a pair in about an hour.  This pattern is available on Ravelry and Etsy so you can make a pair for someone you love (this includes you, by the way ;-) )!
