New Patterns & Kits!
Whoa, trying to log in to write this post I realized that it’s been so long that I almost forgot how to log in! Life has been busy but slowly I have been able to squeeze in some time to do a few crochet designs for fun, and I wanted to share them with you. Each is available as a kit on Craftsy, with the pattern and yarn included in the price. Pretty sweet.
First up is the Craspedia Cardigan. You might remember when I made this in green, but I re-crochetd it in delicious Miss Babs “Yet” and I love it in this yarn, too. It’s light and breezy, perfect for Spring and Summer. I’m actually working on a third version right now, so you know it’s not that hard to crochet. There is a lot of shaping (don’t be afraid, that means increasing and decreasing) and seaming, but that’s what gives it such a lovely structure and shape. Try it out.
Next is the Hexagon Flower Pillow, which I just adore. Cables in the round are one of my favorite, favorite things to crochet. The written instructions include info on how to sew the hexagon insert (starting with a pillowform) so you can get a nice look. Having a white pillow form show through this would not look quite as good as sewing a simple cover that matches the yarn.
And for something that’s just easy and quick, here’s the Everyday Lace Pillow. It’s a simple repeat that’s classic and goes with any decor. I made an interior cover for this one too, to keep it smooth looking– but I think it would be fun with a contrasting color too.
