Today's Question , " What is the difference between a Colorway and Color?


According to the Dictionary: 


Colorway - "A color or arrangement of colors; any range of colors in which a style or design is available."
So when referring to Yarn, it is the color arrangement that it 
is available in.
The Colors and blends that you can purchase the yarn in.


Colors - "Is a palette of colors used together
 to make a cohesive 
fashion statement
 throughout a collection."

So when referring to Yarn, 
it is the colors you 
chose to use, 
such as greens or blues.
How you arrange the colors together.

Live With Sara - "Is It A Stitch Or A Stitch Pattern" | Posh Pooch Designs

Live With Sara 
of

Today we are answering the Question,
"Is It A Stitch or A Stitch Pattern".
These 2 term can be very confusing.

See The Video on my Youtube Crochet Channel At This LINK



The Crochet Stitches Are The Basics Stitch -
 chains, single crochet, Double crochet....ect.

Crochet Stitch Patterns are Stitches made from 

combining stitches into patterns.
Like a Box Stitch, V Stitch, Waffle Stitch.
They contain a combination of basic stitches to form
 the Stitch pattern.

📅📅📅📅📅📅📅📅📅📅📅📅📅📅📅📅📅

Let's Make A Crochet Journal
Before The Holidays get here.
you can copy and Paste this one or
Print a monthly calendar For Free
Everything month at This LINK

Use a pen and write in all your ideas, gifts 
and crochet inspiration. yarns you tried that you 
love or didn't love. 
I even write in if I tried a new pattern and it 
did or did not work.
You can also add happy, joyful things.

I like to write with a blue or black pen, 
then use a red for changes and corrections.
