Stitchin Stairway Scarf

Maker
9/8/2019

I was first taught to crochet at the age of 10 by my grandmother but didn’t pick it back up until I was pregnant with my first. I was so inspired by all these beautiful projects I found on Pinterest I knew I wanted to make my daughter all the things. I started making headbands and hats, then went to more tedious projects like blankets. I got into designing about 5 years ago but wasn’t sharing my patterns until 2 years ago. I have been inspired to do projects that are fun and easy for all types of crochet levels. It’s been my goal to have patterns that everyone can understand and make, which is what inspired this Stitchin Stairway Scarf!

I want everyone to know we are all capable of greatness! It only takes one supportive person in your life to help you see your worth. I’d like to leave you with a few mottos I live by, first one: Peace out, God Bless. I use that one when I am banning negative thoughts or fear from my mind. Second one: This too shall pass. This one has gotten me through a lot on my mental health journey. I hope all your dreams come true and remember you have the power to do anything!
