November is almost over, and Christmas is approaching quickly. It’s time to start making presents!
The first gift I’ve finished so far is my first shawl project. I used one skein of Simply Soft Light in Hawaiian Sky to make Julie Aakjær’s beautiful Spring Crescent pattern, which is available as a free download on Ravelry, here.
I would definitely use both the yarn and the pattern again. The Simply Soft Light has great yardage for the price, is machine washable, and is available in several jewel-tone colors. Even after heavy frogging, the yarn hardly pills at all, although it sticks to itself in some places. The light twist of the yarn lends texture to the finished fabric and adds interest to the project. The Spring Crescent pattern has clear instructions and simple charts. It’s easy to modify to accommodate for different amounts and weights of yarn. This simple one-skein shawl will make a great gift.
My very first published pattern, the Blaze Peplum Top, has completed testing! It’s free for the first 150 downloads on Ravelry with the coupon code BLAZEFREE. After this promotion, the price will go to $4.00.
This crochet toddler shirt pattern is formed in two parts: a top made of join-as-you-go motifs and a peplum of lacy shells. It works up quickly with 450 yards of DK yarn and a size J-10 (6.00 mm) crochet hook.
Additional Materials Needed:
Pentagon motif – 3” diameter
Hexagon motif – 4” diameter
Skirt – 2 repeats in pattern = 3”
