Over the last few years, I’ve published a lot of patterns. I mean, a lot of patterns. I have seventy listed in the Ravelry database. As a designer, one thing I love about Rav is that it gives me a great way to see the projects people have made from my patterns – I can’t get over how many hundreds of items have been made from my directions. It’s mind-boggling.
Anyway, during Inner Child Crochet‘s birthday celebration I thought it would be fun to look at the five most favorite patterns (as listed by Ravelry).
With 488 hearts and 103 projects, this is a simple pattern that apparently appeals to a lot of people.
This is a variation of Beth’s Little Star Afghan, and gets more attention for its detail than its simplicity. 597 people heart this pattern, and 65 people made it. You should really check out the version made by agamerswife. It’s worth the click. Oh, yes, it is indeed.
Designed two years before it was finally released, Genevieve is one of my most lovely creations. (Not that I’m biased.) 681 Ravelers agree, although only 23 have been made.
It’s no secret why this is so popular. Harry Potter is awesome. This pattern is very easy. Also, it’s free. At the time of this post, the pattern has 777 hearts and a whopping 167 projects.
The only knitting pattern to make the list, it really, really makes the list. A simple cabled hat in three sizes and worsted weight yarn – who doesn’t like that? I can tell you who does – 1,601 Ravelers like this pattern, and there are 324 projects in the database. Woo!
And as a special treat for those of you who read through this – leave a comment on this post by the end of the month (with a valid email address) and tell me which of my patterns you love, and I’ll email you a code for 50% off any pattern purchase. Yup. 50% off! That makes everything cooler.
