My style as a crochet pattern designer is fun, quirky, colorful and all about letting YOU get creative. I try to break patterns down to their most basic elements so that you can take the design and make it your own. My patterns use almost exclusively bulky & super bulky weight yarn (so they work up QUICK!) and are meant to be beginner-friendly!
You can shop ALL of my patterns in my Etsy shop here or check out a few of the free patterns from my blog below!
The Enid/Wednesday Snood
Written Tutorial - I’m not usually one to jump on a trend bandwagon but my love for color, chunky scarves and the new Netflix show Wednesday made this one too tantalizing to ignore! I decided I needed to make my own version of the Enid/Wednesday snood and share the pattern with you all!
The Luna Cardigan
Video Tutorial - This pattern has truly become what I would call a Pink Sheep "classic" design! It was my first long sleeve cardigan, released in back in 2020 and remains my favorite design to recommend to people if they are looking to crochet their first cardigan! It is SO simple and beucase of the super bulky yarn it works up FAST–seriously, you can make one of these babies in a weekend!!! So grab your chunky crochet hook & some yarn and let's DO this! This is a crochet-a-long style tutorial so you get to make one "with" me–this is also a great pattern if you are still learning to read crochet patterns since I walk you through the process!
The Dobby Cardigan
Written Tutorial & Crochet-a-long - This pattern was released as part of the Furls Crochet 2021 blog hop! It is a fun, simple hooded cardigan that uses two strands of Furls' Whims Merino Worsted Weight (4) yarn held together and a 10mm hook! This pattern is a great stash buster since you can use any combination of worsted weight yarn to create your own colorful cardigan!

I have included a full video tutorial and lots of photos to help make it easy to follow along, even for beginners.
The Scrappy Fringe Scarf
Written Tutorial - I work 99% of my scarves (and hats for that matter!) in the round, but I decided I wanted to change it up and design a fun, colorful long ribbed scarf! For this pattern you will need 3 different colors of a super bulky (6) yarn, a multicolored bulky (5) yarn, and a 10mm crochet hook!
The Sneaky Buns Bucket Hat
Video Tutorial - This was such a fun little pattern to design and in this free video tutorial I will walk you through the process step by step! This is a super simple and FAST make, perfect for quick gifts and to sell at summer craft shows!
The Scrap Cowl Scarf
Written Tutorial - I love chunky yarn. So much so, that I end up stashing away any of the lighter weight yarn I purchase for months or even years before it gets used for anything! This weekend I decided to do a stash busting scarf to help use up some of these lonely closet skiens It’s a super easy pattern, perfect for accompanying some Netflix binging! You'll need 4-5 strands of light and/or worsted weight yarn and a 15mm hook!
My Favorite Headband
Video Tutorial - I've never been much of a hat person since my hair is usually up in a messy bun. This means that my go-to item in colder weather is usually a headband. Since I designed this headband for craft shows, I needed something that worked up quickly while also being functional–the nice wide band means your ears will be fully covered! This headband can also be easily be adjusted for length and width!
The Cat Ear Hooded Cowl
Written Tutorial - Although I can’t honestly call myself a halloween fanatic, I do wish I had more opportunities to dress up in costume–it really is so much fun! This cat ear hooded cowl is my homage to all those crafty people out there who wait until the last second to find a Halloween costume and end up needing to make one! This pattern is made holding two strands of bulky weight (6) yarn together to work up super fast! you'll start with a 20mm hook and move to a 10mm hook for the ears!
Halloween Themed Cat Ear Hat
Video Tutorial - The Halloween Themed Cat Ear Hat Crochet Pattern! Cat ear hats were always a great seller at my craft shows over the years, and this pattern is so quick to work up that it makes for a fun last minute addition to a halloween costume–especially if you end up out on a colder than expected Halloween night!
The Pink Sheep Signature Chunky Cowl
Written & Video Tutorial - This cowl was a best seller at craft shows every year. It is super squishy, soft and SO quick to work up! I am releasing as a crochet-a-long 2-part video series and you will need super bulky (6) yarn, like Lion Brand Wool Ease Thick & Quick a 25mm crochet hook!
Pocket Worry Cats
Written Tutorial - After having two friends loose their sweet furbabies in the same month I began looking for something simple I could send to comfort them. I found some sweet cards and charms but nothing seemed just right. After some thought I decided to make something myself, but what?? I wanted something small that they could keep with them or store with other special treasures. It finally hit me, have you heard of Guatemalan worry dolls or worry stones? I like to think of these as worry cats! I hope you enjoy this super simple pattern!
Simple Tie-Back Mask
Written Tutorial - I released my pattern for crocheted mask extenders/mask mates despite the fact that I didn’t even have a mask here at my house to try them out with! I wasn’t too concerned until we finally decided to come out of “hiding” to venture to the grocery store and realized I’d probably feel much better if I had a mask! At that point I had no time to order one and I’m not handy enough on the sewing machine to feel comfortable “whipping” one up without doing some pattern research, so I did what many crocheters do best… I found a few pattern ideas online and then decided to just wing it–oh, and write it down to share with YOU! For this mask I used about a half a skien of worsted weight (4) Cotton Yarn, a size 5.5 Hook, a few scraps of fabric to line the mask, tapestry needle, smaller needle & thread and a pair of scissors!
Ponytail Mask Extender/Mask-Mate
Written Tutorial - I had a request from a friend of mine for some of the ear savers people were using to keep masks from rubbing the back of their ears raw. I found a lot of options online but no patterns with the option to pull your ponytail through, so I decided to make my own pattern to share with all of YOU! All you need is some worsted weight (4) yarn, buttons, needle and thread and a 5.5mm hook!
