And a very happy Monday to you all.
I am so pleased to be sat here designing and creating again. It seems like forever since I last did that!
Life well and truly got in the way, and knocked me more than just a little sideways there.
Today I am showing you my brand new “Chill Cardi” design.
I have called it Purple Heather because the colours remind me so much of just that. Smiles.
This is the back view, which gives a much better feel for these beautiful colours.
The yarn I used to create my Purple Heather Chill Cardi, is Stylecraft Batik Swirl in Purple Mist. It is a double knit weight yarn which is actually quite thick and so soft & easy to work with. I loved every minute of creating this!
The actual stitch pattern is a simple Treble (US Double Crochet) row, and a Chain row with Trebles after that.
I also worked into front and back loops for added texture, which is how that lovely ridge effect happens. It was so quick and simple to do, yet looks so effective when it’s all put together.
You can also follow me on Instagram, and there is a Facebook group too, where you can see what I’m creating, and also where you can share your own makes etc. It is a fun and friendly little group and you are very welcome to join us there.
Hugs & Happy Crafting Everyone!
