My Love & Boops pattern will be apart of another Blog Hop in February 2024 and be featured on 2/23/24! where you will be able to get the pdf from Ravelry or the e-pattern from Ribblr for 50% off!

The blog post here has the written instructions for the Love &Boops crochet pattern, the pdf has a few photos as well as a graph of the image to help those who are more visual when they follow patterns. There is also a YouTube tutorial embedded here to show how to do the color changes, If this video is helpful you can find more crochet tutorials on my YouTube channel. would love to have you stop by, check them out, and subscribe if you find the videos to be helpful.

Each day during the blog hop, a wonderful designer will have a turn being featured in which you will be able to get their featured pattern for 50% to 100% the original price. This is a great way to get introduced to some amazing designers and find out what your preferred pattern style is to follow. You can find the host and all the coupon codes in the Facebook group Crochet Designer Community.
