Breath of Spring
[pinit] This cardigan is like a breath of spring - almost lighter than air, as it is knit at a loose gauge. It is the perfect coverup for a spring day or a cool summer evening. La Gran mohair yarn is an ideal yarn choice for the sweater, as the brushed mohair fills in the stitches just enough to soften the loose gauge, and the yarn's strength ensures that the fabric will wear well. For a smoother look, try Lily Chin's Tribeca. Higher or deeper v-neck is your choice. Crochet flowers are appliqued around hem and at the sleeves, just above the flare, as a lovely feminine accent. The weight of the appliques also gives structure to these very light fabrics, ensuring the cardigan hangs well. It's a go-to shoulder season sweater!
Crochet Flower Capelet
[pinit] This is a lovely accessory, to cover the shoulders on a cool summer's eve. It is quick and easy to make, and has no finishing! Each motif is joined to the others on its last round. After blocking it, just run the ribbon through it and wear it! After I designed the pentagon motif (with a central flower), I discovered that, when they were joined together a certain way, they created a curve - the perfect curve to drape around shoulders. This capelet is made using just 2 hanks of Oasis Yarn Aussi Wool Worsted (doubled), a soft Australian wool yarn, which come in beautiful solid colors.
Fan Stitch Crochet Scarf & Beaded Pin
[pinit] This design is quick and easy to work up. There are two styles of beading used in the design. The pin uses the hook-on method, where a bead is hooked onto each finished stitch, as you crochet. The scarf fringe uses the pre-strung method, but there’s only 23 beads strung onto the yarn for each fringe. Each fringe is worked separately, so there’s not a lot of prestringing to do at one time. The yarns used are very soft and are ideal for wearing around the neck – Targhee wool, which is as soft as Merino and Cashmere, the queen of softness! These accessories would make wonderful gifts, as they are quick to make, yet unique and elegant.
Fan Stitch Capelet
[pinit] This capelet is warm, stylish ,and easy to crochet. The size of the fans decrease from the shoulders to the neck, so that the capelet sits comfortably on the shoulders and hugs the neck. It stays on the shoulders even when the pewter clasp is undone! I used Peace Fleece Worsted as I love the heather and tweed colors. The mohair content also makes this yarn special. Or you can use your favorite heavy worsted weight yarn.
Flower Basket Purse
[pinit] This adorable spring purse is a quick knit and crochet project! The flower embellishment and picot mesh strap are crocheted in Patons Soy Wool Stripes, a wool and bamboo blend yarn. The long color lengths within this striping yarn create a subtle movement from one color to the next. The purse body is knit in a basket weave stitch pattern in a solid color to either contrast or coordinate with one of the colors in the striped yarn.
Crochet Mini bags
[pinit] These bags are the perfect size for a cell phone or car keys, credit card and lipstick! The magnetic snaps keep the top opening secure. The bags are easy to crochet and come in 3 styles - a basic bag with shoulder strap, a bag with a buckled adjustable long strap, and a bag with buttoned adjustable long strap and a shaped bag bottom. Each bag uses only 2 balls of Heirloom Breeze, a cotton/wool/lycra blend stretch yarn that's comfortable to work with.
Baby’s Crochet Flower Blanket
[pinit] This crocheted baby blanket will bring a smile to your face! The motifs are quick to make and portable – great for summer traveling. They are then sewn together into flower groupings, then those groupings are joined to create the blanket. The blanket is sampled in Cascade 220, a favorite worsted weight wool yarn.
