Easy to pick up and put down, knitted or crochet a wrap, poncho, shawl or stole could be an ideal holiday project plus great to wear on cool summer evenings.
These are just some of our favourites…..
Drops Design Poncho
Many customers and members of our classes have made this crochet poncho, which is a free download pattern from Drops Design “Light Embrace” which can be found on their website.
The poncho looks very different depending on the yarn used, King Cole cotton soft and finesse (silk and cotton mix) and Cygnet cottony are some of the choices which we have in store …..
King Cole Wrap
This king Cole wrap pattern is proving very popular too and can be made in a chunky or double knit weight. Recently crocheters at the shop are making this in Carousel,Twirly Tweed, and Riot Chunky plus a lighter weight version in Double Knit, Sprite and curiosity being popular choices in colour changing yarns.
Crochet Lounge Cardigan
The Duvet Day Cardigan, a Crochet Lounge Pattern is prefect for all seasons, worn as a jacket on summer evenings, shown here in Big Value Chunky and Timeless Chunky.
A Virus Shawl
And of course a Virus Shawl which is as popular as ever, and has endless possibilities for colour and look making it a very versatile garment, which grows quickly and is a fun project, we have lost count of how many people have made these ….. we even blogged about it becoming an epidemic last summer.
Isn’t it nice to be able to visit a local wool shop, see the colours and touch and feel the wool and yarn you are buying for your project.
Maybe browse through pattern books, and perhaps chat over your choices with someone who both knits and crochets.
Corinne also runs workshops and classes in both knitting and crochet including Tunisian crochet.
