It’s Christmas in July! Underground Crafter has organized another amazing Make Along with many other designers and crafters! What’s great about this Make Along is that not all project are crochet. There are a few knitting and sewing projects thrown in there as well for all you multicrafturals! 31 days and 31 free patterns to get you started on those holiday gifts.
This week is all about patterns specifically for women! I designed the Divine Lotus Triangle Cowl with a nice and easy shell stitch pattern. This pattern has quick to memorize repeats, making it a fast and fun work up for yourself or for gifting! For this project I used Dreamers yarn, which is a fabulously gorgeous multi strand yarn. This is a fingering weight yarn when all of the threads are combined. It makes such lightweight and beautiful pieces. However, any weight 1 (or possibly 2) yarn will work!
