This month we are featuring one of my favorite cowls in 3 Colorful Ways. It was first designed by Nancy Thomas in our new Sparkle Soft yarn in White. Everyone in the office oohed and aahed when it arrived. So it was a natural choice for wanting to see it worked up in other yarns. We re-knit it in Unforgettable in Petunia (that looks great on everyone) and then also in the new Papaya shade of With Love (an on-trend color that is in all the fashion reports). It an easy lace pattern that is perfect for those wanting to try a small project with lace – which is really just a pretty name for making holes in your knitting. You’ll find separate patterns for each of the 3 cowls linked to their photos below. The patterns are written out and charts are included that are nice to follow for the lace patterns.
The basketweave crochet stitch is a beautiful textured stitch that creates a woven fabric rich in density and beauty. It can be worked in any type of yarn although it looks especially beautiful in a classic worsted weight yarn such as Super Saver Economy Yarn because of the structure of the stitch. This guide will teach you all about how to crochet basketweave stitch. including the most popular version of the stitch and a set of variations to play with.
