Ocean Spray Cowl Crochet Pattern!

Happy Weekend Everyone!

The big freeze is set to arrive next week, so what better time to release my brand new Ocean Spray Cowl Pattern?!Collage 2019-01-03 10_01_27

My awesome testers love this pattern, for it’s ease and for the beautiful textures that it offers.

I love this pattern, and the design itself, it’s like wearing a big warm hug!  Smiles.

Of the cross stitch included in this design, somebody said that they are like blown kisses.  I loved that description so much!  A little bit of love wrapped around you for warmth.  Perfect.

Here is Vanessa, modelling her version.  She used a different chunky yarn and it worked up just beautifully.  A little larger, but I love it!

Another one worked up a little larger (it’s all about preference) and shows how versatile this newest Cowl design actually is.

This is the daughter of one my testers, doesn’t she model it just beautifully?!

Mine was created using Caron X Pantone (I used 2 sets, but depending on tension or if you want to make it bigger, you may need3 sets.) 

If you want to substitute the yarn for another Chunky weight yarn, then you will need 50g in each colour.  You can use 5 colours and repeat the sequence, or 10 different colours.  The choice is yours.  Smiles.

Don’t forget about the 1K Giveaway that I’m hosting on my Instagram Page, full details are on this blog post here.

Your New Favourite Sweater (Of All Time!)

Hello everyone!

I’m smiling here, as I type the title of this blog post, and think of the name that I have given my newest crochet sweater.tucked under closer

I decided on “Your Favourite Sweater” because I know that it will be just that! :0)

I made this sweater in under 6 hours, and the only way to describe it, is to say that it’s like walking around, wrapped in your favourite blanket (without looking as silly as you would if you actually did that!)

The forecasters are telling us all to expect a big arctic freeze after this coming weekend.  Well, I’m certainly ready for it with this wonderfully warm sweater! :0)

To create this fabulously warm, quick, simply, no fuss, AWESOME sweater for yourself, all you need are the following;

Your Favourite Sweater Pattern – Found on Love CrochetRavelryEtsy

A 10mm Crochet Hook

Stylecraft Special XL Chunky Yarn.

I LOVE this yarn so much I can’t even tell you.  It is so THICK.  So very SOFT and QUICK to work with.  And the colour choices are rather nice too!  Smiles.

untucked closer

I designed this sweater with a crop version in mind, where it is just perfect for wearing over a vest top of tee.

You can either wear it “down” (shown above) or wear it tucked under (shown below.)

tucked under closer

Personally I prefer it tucked under, but I do love that I have the option to wear it any way that I feel comfortable with.

Zahra sweater

The sweater above, was made by one of my lovely pattern testers, Zahra. And I just adore the colours that she chose.

Zahra loved the fit of this sweater, and said it was amazing!  This truly is a quick, simply, no fuss sweater to make, and I cannot wait to see all of your lovely creations with this pattern.  :0)

Hugs & Happy Crafting Everyone!
