Berry Harvest Bandana Cowl

Celestial Strings sent me a most gorgeous and special skein of yarn – beautiful subtly variegated purples in a superwash merino – and named Moogly Berry! How could I resist? Well, ok, so I didn’t even try. What I did do was turn it into a super cozy one skein mini shawlette- the Berry Harvest Bandana Cowl!

Alpaca Your Wrap

Last fall I designed the Fallen Leaves Slouchy Hat – in gorgeous Baby Alpaca from the LB Collection! It was just one skein, and it was so fun to make. Well, I finally got my hands on some more of this lovely yarn, and have designed a luxurious wrap to match! However, “Fall Leaves Wrap” is the name of another gorgeous pattern by my friend Jessie At Home – which you should totally check out HERE, it’s amazing! So to avoid confusion, the companion piece to the Fallen Leaves Slouchy Hat has a name all it’s own – the Alpaca Your Wrap!

Beautiful and Inspiring Irish Crochet Lace: 10 Free Patterns

Irish crochet lace dates back to the the 19th century famine in Ireland, where it was a way for women to make money. It used several weights of thread, and motifs were made separately, tacked to paper, and the spaces filled in with mesh. Specific patterns and designs were often closely guarded secrets, and the finished lace was highly valued! Today, Irish crochet lace has evolved and expanded a bit, but the mesh and the rose are still iconic facets of the art. And luckily, it’s no longer a secret!
