The time has finally arrived for you to see what all 12 designers have been up to this month!  Just to recap, each designer was asked to create a crochet design using the Serenity stitch as their focus along with Serenity as their theme to design around.  Serenity can mean different things to everyone, so here's a chance to get to know them a little better through their designs.

Take a look at all 12 designs here on the blog and then head over to the website to vote for your top 3 choices. Voting is open from Friday 6/26/15 through Monday 6/29/15.  The design with the highest votes will win Fan Choice , be featured on the cover of The Battle of the Stitches eBook along with receiving a prize package valued around $100.  Now, sit back, relax and find your Serenity with us.

The Stitch:

Out of ALL the amazing crochet stitches out there, how do you choose just 1 for a round of The Battle of the Stitches?  Well,  it takes a LOT of searching.  Many stitch books are browsed, online tutorials looked through and a note book to jot down the ones that stick out.  What works well for the season coming up?  Will it be easy to design a wide variety of crochet patterns using it as the focus?  It's easy to pick 1 stitch to design 1 project, but to have 12 talented designers all using the same stitch at the same time with the same theme is a little more difficult to narrow it down.  In the end, for this round, it was just that gut feeling.  You know the one, "This is it!"  It cries out that it's a MUST have.
