This month has been so busy, I continue to forget what day it is. I don’t think I’ve ever waiting til the very last day of the month to publish a monthly round-up, but here we are. Please enjoy this October Showcase, and if you’re interested in learning a little more about cold weather yarns and how to choose them for certain projects, I’ve got you covered. Covered! See what I did there…?
This month was a little different, pattern-wise. I really do try to release a free pattern each month, as well as a paid pattern. Due to some poor planning on my part, I ended up with two paid patterns ready before a freebie was finalized. Therefore, I released two paid patterns this month instead.
In order to make it up to you, and have a DOUBLE freebie pattern hitting the blog in November, so thanks for your patience with me and I know you’re going to love it. Keep an eye on the blog or the facebook group and I’ll post as soon as it’s ready!
Fluffin’ Cowl is really an awe-inspiring little piece of crochet work, and if you haven’t tried it yet, you really really should. Crocheted in three colors of WeCrochet’s Wonderfluff, a baby alpaca/Merino/nylon blend of blown yarn, it is light as a cloud and full of color. The tapestry crochet technique carries the yarns inside the stitches, and the whole thing is worked in a continuous spiral. Everything will think you worked some black magic, but the whole cowl can be done by the motivated crocheter in two hours! Try it, you’ll wonder what took you so long.
Now this one… this one I am really proud of. Introducing Kindred Spirit, a rectangular wrap made of two mirrored panels that are seamed together up the middle. If you haven’t seen this pattern yet, click the pic and check out all the pics on the pattern page. This is a very unique wrap, and WeCrochet’s Kindred (baby alpaca/Peruvian cotton) is the most perfect yarn for it.
In fact, this yarn quickly went into my top 10 yarns of all time. It is THAT amazing. Soft, bouncy, warm, and not the least bit of prickle, I know you’ll love it too.
I hope you enjoyed this October Showcase. Thanks for being here. Thanks for cheering me on and lifting me up. This has been a big month of learning for me (sometimes, the hard way,) and I can’t express my gratitude enough for your patience, helpfulness, and kindness. You just keep loving me through it, and I appreciate that more than you know.
As always, a quick, easy, and totally free way of helping me out would be to share this post on any social media, reblogging, liking, commenting, and anything else you can think of. You don’t have to make a purchase to make a difference ♥
