Crochet! And a giveaway

This shawl. The work of fairies, no?

I love it. It’s crocheted, not knitted. And it’s not hard to do. I’ve just proofed the pattern, and I could easily follow the instructions. And if I can figure them out, so, oh so, can you. You’ll need a hook, (F/5) and two skeins of Sparrow. The pattern? We’ll post it on Wednesday when we release our first ever crochet (!) collection. T’will be an e-book of five lovely designs by Rebecca Velasquez: The shawl above, the mitts below, and the sweater, hat, and ascot all further below.

For a chance at one of three giveaway copies of Crochet, post a comment below. On Wednesday, just before we launch the collection/patterns, we’ll choose 3 entries and announce the winners right here. So, thoughts…? Read on for notes on the pieces that follow.

Apricot–my favorite color on this bleak, gray day in January. This is NOT how it looks here today.

An easy beret. So pretty, so modern. With a knitted hatband, no less.

And little keyhole ascot, with floral motifs embedded in the mesh pattern.

    Lovely designs for lovely yarn. Who could ask for more? Thanks for shining the light on crochet.

  10. Love, love, love the beret. Can’t wait to see the pattern and buy the yarn. I also love the idea of mixing knitting and crochet. I’ve done it with my own work for years but don’t recall a pattern with it.
    Looking forward to the pattern release on Wednesday.
