ILikeCrochet.com is an online/digital magazine that is published by Prime Publishing. You can view the bimonthly issues on either your desktop/laptop or your tablet.

The site offers a couple different options for access. Either tablet only, website only or combined tablet and website access. I don’t have a tablet so I only use it via my laptop. The great thing about the website subscription is you get access to ALL THE PREVIOUS ISSUES dating back to April 2014, as well as 6 new issues a year! That’s a lot of patterns and articles. FYI-back issue access isn’t an option with the tablet only subscription, just the website subscription.

In addition to my contributions to the magazine, I have also made the following hats; The Butterscotch Cream Hat from the December 2014 issue and the Darling Baby Hat from the April 2015 issue. Both have been donated to Halos of Hope as part of my 2014 and 2015 Stash Busting Challenges.

Check it out, see all the great patterns currently available and imagine all the fantastic patterns still to come.  If you do subscribe, please follow my link. This is another way they support independent designers by providing referral fees. How awesome is that!

Review-I Like Crochet February 2015 Issue

Live. Love. Crochet. is Spot On!

Owl Always Love You crochet amigurumi pattern by Darleen Hopkins

Now available for instant download.

ILikeCrochet.com’s slogan is Live. Love. Crochet. Not only is this true for everyday life but it is perfect for the February 2015 issue.  February is the month we celebrate those in our lives that we love with lots of pinks and reds and hearts and – in this issue – lots of owls!  If you have followed my blog, you know I like to make hats, particularly silly hats for the little ones.  This issue has an adorable Little Hootie hat that I will be making in the very, very near future.  Another owl themed pattern in this issue is a cute owl candy holder.  This is a great way to dress up a candy bar for your sweetie.  And when the candy is gone, I bet the candy holder would make a great bookmark!  The last owl, and personally, my favorite, is the amigurumi Owl Always Love You.  I’m a little partial to this cutie as he is my design-shameless plug, I know.  But, he is adorable and really, who can resist an adorable owl?

Stash Bust Challenge Update: Aug. 2013

WHOooo’s Stash Busting?

P1020887 (750x543)I fell a little behind in my stash busting for June and July.  Although I made a lot of  hats for Halos of Hope, I didn’t use the Bernat CottonTots in my Stash Bust Challenge.  I plan to make up for it this month.  I have a current design I’m working on and a magazine deadline (yeah!) to meet, but I hope to squeeze in a couple more hats this month.  I did spend this weekend working on two cuties.  The design is from Sarah Zimmerman and you can get the pattern here: Crochet Owl Hat.  I made some modifications to the hat design to make it work with my smaller scrap pieces (you can see my notes here).  Overall, I’m real pleased.  It’s a fun, quick hat to make.  Together, they weigh in at 4 1/2 ounces.

Total Stash Bust Yarn Used to Date: Just over 3 pounds!  Officially 1/2 way done!

Total Stash Bust Hats Made to Date: 15
