Spring In the Shade of Leaves

Do you know the shawl In the Shade of Leaves, designed by EclatDuSoleil?

It’s an asymmetric triangle with an elegant, yet simple stitch pattern, and clever shaping.

The finishing touch is a border with small leaves that I find both beautiful and whimsical.

The shawl in the photo was worked in a wool yarn, but for spring and summer, I’d suggest making this shawl in Whirlette, a cotton blend.

Whirlette is slightly more lightweight than the original wool, so you might choose to go down a hook size.
This yarn has excellent yardage, 2 balls are enough to make In the Shade of Leaves!

New pattern: Rhombique

I’m happy and proud to introduce Rhombique, my brand new pattern for drawstring bags in mosaic crochet! Use this wonderful technique to draw diamonds with your hook!

The pattern is written for two sizes. The smaller bag is approximately 18 cm/7″ across and 34 cm/13.5″ tall. The larger bag is approximately 24 cm/9.5″ across and 45 cm/17.75″ tall.

If you are new to mosaic crochet, the pattern includes several links to detailed tutorials to help you understand the technique. Since this is one-row mosaic crochet, I have included two charts: a “universal” one and an “adapted” one, where the latter indicates exactly where to place your dc’s.

Circaetus, crochet shawl

I’m very happy to introduce my new design: the shawl Circaetus!

This pattern was inspired by a series of tutorials on the work in one loop only, published this spring in my newsletter. Circaetus is worked almost entirely in the front loop only.

Not only does this add a lovely, subtle texture, but it also makes for a very light and drapey fabric.

Warmth and cozyness are provided by the yarn chosen, Balayage, in baby alpaca and merino.

Time flies, and things change… I’m offering a 50% discount on five crochet patterns before retiring them from the shop.

There are no problems with these patterns, but I feel that these designs and the pattern layouts belong to the past.

My way of writing patterns, drawing charts and taking pictures has evolved.

It is time for these designs to bow out, but before that, I want to offer them at half price for a limited time.

Until the 4th October you will find them at the discounted price in the shop by following this link.
