Well, that was a whirlwind of a blog tour! Thanks so much to everyone who posted and shared, and to all of you for the nice comments you left on each post. If you missed anything, head over to the last post, which includes links to all of them. I am thrilled to see so many projects already popping up on Ravelry! I have lots of things (patterns, books, classes, etc!) to tell you about this week, so let’s start with the pretty pictures.
First up is the Diamond Lace Scarf, made with one sumptuous skein of ArtYarns Cashmere Sock. The openwork design works up quickly and when you block it makes a lovely lightweight neck scarf. The pattern can easily be modified for a longer or wider version if you have more yarn.
Next, my Circles Scarf (originally seen in Inside Crochet) is finally available in US terms as a PDF. As you can see from the finished projects on Ravelry, it’s fun and a great way to show off a skein or two of color-changing sock yarn.
My Petal Beret, a hat worked in one skein of super springy Malabrigo lace, is also available as a PDF. This one uses post stitches and shells to form a wonderfully drapey and soft fabric and flower design.
And, my Crochet Hanger Covers (originally in Spool Magazine) are also now available as a PDF pattern. They’re a quick fun way to brighten up for spring. And, they make me want to hang up my clothes, which is always a good thing!
