I hope you all had a Happy New Year and I hope this New year finds you all in good health.I have some wonderful news to share.
The latest issue of Inside crochet 61 is out now ,I'm chuffed to have my pattern published.I was inspired by the beauty of Bargello needlepoint in which distinctive patterns are built up from rows of straight stitches, arranged in a zigzag line, with repeats in varying shades or colours. It produces a beautifully rich pattern and I have adapted it to create a sumptuous crochet design
It has been mentioned on the Inside crochet blog . (crash ,bang, wallop, that's me I have just fallen on the floor.Its always wonderful it have your pattern mentioned by the editor.
The shape of the line is created by ‘steps’ between one row and the next .Pattern is cleverly formed with slip stitches. By varying these steps, the chevron can be softened into a curve, or elongated into a pinnacle.Pattern is reversible.The design simplicity allows you to enjoy beautiful colour play without having to focus too much on the stitches.
I was very privileged to receive yarn support from Millamia Yarns. The scarf uses naturally soft merino yarn.This yarn is seriously soft.Naturally Soft Merino Yarn is made from 100% extra fine Merino Wool.
Its supersoft feel makes it ideal for babies and young children, and the lovely twist on the yarn means that the resulting fabric has a great stitch definition .Millamia is run by two beautiful Swedish sister .The Scandi influence is easy to see in their designs. I urge you to go take a look at their website and search out the yarns in a store near you .
I would like to give special thanks to Max, who works with this fab duo. A chance meeting at Knit nation in a queue and a love of yarn meant we could chat as though we had been friends for years. Thank you Max.
Do check out all the other fabulous designs in the magazine, they are all fabulous
