Here is the lovely Carol modeling her crocheted ruffling scarf out of Madelinetosh Pashmina if Forestry. Carol chose a soft, drapey yarn making her scarf flouncey and flowy. Carol’s a knitter as well and learned the skills for this project through our Crochet 101 class.
The pattern, Spring Frills, is available for free online.
We were so happy to see this little miss in her new hat. How could we not share these photos?
The pattern for the Vintage Pixie Cap is available in Vintage Knits for Modern Babies. Her little bonnet was worked up in one skein of Rialto DK.
Ben came to us with no crochet skills under his belt and look at him now! He’s mastered the basics, crocheted gloves, conquered amigurumi, and has moved onto garments. Private lessons are a great way to cover a variety of topics outside what is offered in our already expansive class catalog. Private lessons are available for adults and children, in private and semi-private formats, with any of our bright and happy staff. If you’d like to schedule a private lesson, please drop by the store or give us a call at 415-621-6642
Sally’s Babette Blanket is stunning. Using a whomping 23 skeins of Koigu Premium Merino (KPM), Sally’s blanket is a labor of love for her son. And labor she did, Sally modified the blanket to be a little larger. Sally recommends getting 3 skeins of 8 colors to ensure even color variation. Feeling a little spunky? Throw in a color of KPPPM. The Babette Blanket pattern was published in the Spring 2006 issue of Interweave Crochet and is available for purchase online.
We’re so looking forward to seeing what Sally makes next. If you see her around, chat blankets and all things crochet.
