Interesting Patterns for you to knit or crochet

Tin of Tans Pattern $5.00

Heather Ordover of the Craftlit Podcast said

It is the most adorable thing you've ever seen in your life, it's flat out genius.

My kids have had such a blast with these. I downloaded the pattern as soon as Heather sent out the link and had them done that same day. Had to also make a second set (two kids and they didn’t want to share). They have been the greatest! Kept them busy on our recent move from Washington to Montana, I heard very little out of both of them since they were too busy putting together new shapes.

The pattern is written in American crochet terminology, charted, and tech edited (Thank you Lindsey Stephens). There is a pattern for the crocheted tin cover, and a cross stitch chart for the lettering, but if you prefer a simpler label, you can cut out the paper one from the pattern itself. The pattern includes links to printable tangram puzzles, and technique tutorials for the foundation single crochet and working cross stitch on single crochet ground.
