Orange Shrug

I view a photo of the two of you, one had on an Orange Shrug ( net stitch) and the other had on an Orange with Yellow trim Shrug.
I was wondering if the pattern is available for purchase? Or can I use the Two-Tone Shrug pattern just changing the stitches?
Is there a chance you guys will be coming to California any time soon, or displaying your work at Macy's in CA?

P.S I too have identical twins, Khaydeen and Khaylenn (boys 6 yrs. old in July). What a BLESSING and JOY they are.

Good Job

I have recently started back crocheting after about 20 years. Love you patterns. They are so easy to understand and duplicate. I made the newsboy cap that was a big hit with my new group. Have been following your careers(both) . Are you going to offer the multi wrap pattern any time soon? I would love to make it after seeing your video showing it. Please reply. Keep up the good work.

Circle Wrap!

Hey Ladies! It's great to see that you all have partnered with Red Heart. I just finished the circle wrap. It was quick and fun; my favorite kind of project! Keep the greatness coming. Your creativity is inspiring. I look forward to seeing the fashions that you come up with for the"not so thin".

I love your circle shawl

Good morning I love your circle shawl so cool! But I have a question for you, This fall I saw a girl walking down the street a block away from me and she was wearing a jacket vest crocheted solid in the same circle multi colored pattern on this vest. Do you have any idea where I might find that pattern? Thanks again for the patterns I love them! Bless you heart!

Finding skirts for plus size.

Dear Ladies:
Iknow that you don't really deal with full figure women like myself, but I would love to see if you have patterns that deals with plus sized women. I would love learn how to make skirts for sizes 14 to above. If you don't have any would you tell me where I could find some, please.

Re: Finding skirts for plus size.

Greetings! Thank you so much for your support. At the start of our crochet career, we created tons of "body conscious" designs. But then, we started to find joy in creating traditional but funky, accessories like,hats & scarves. Later accessories like wraps, shawls and ponchos took our interest.
But as time progressed & we learned more about fit and style for items like jackets, dusters, skirts, & dresses for fashionistas of all sizes.
We appreciate you for continuing to follow us and we are happy to say that we have a nice skirt pattern on the way that you are sure to love! Keep looking out and rest assured that it will be offered in a plethora of sizes to flatter all body types.
Talk to you soon and continue to "do what you love, and share, what you do".

Do you have any ideas or cool

Do you have any ideas or cool designs using sequin appliques? I'd like to spice things up a bit and make some cool scarves for winter.

DS Twins's picture


Using sequins is a good idea! Sequin appliques on the bottom part of a scarf, or in the center of crochet flowers would really do the trick. thanks for the idea and look forward to some patterns that include sequins soon.
