After many requests, we have finally perfected and patterned up a crochet version of our most popular pattern, the Center Row Lace Headband / Neck Warmer.  The dimensions of the finished product are very close to the knit version, and the look is almost identical.  I hope that you crocheters out there are happy with the results.  This pattern comes out just in time to stylishly fight off that winter weather!

We’ve also been hard at work creating the patterns featured in our last post!

This trend has shown no signs of letting up. Not a shocker since military goes hand and hand with the upcoming season; who doesn’t love snuggly wool coats or bulky knits (or crochet) protecting them from the winter chill?  Truly inspired we went on a mission of our own, finding this great assortment of yarns for your next military inspired project. Each of these yarns works perfectly for Fresh.

1) Toad : City Tweed by Knit Picks

2) Khaki : Nature’s Choice Organic Cotton Yarn by Lion Brand

3) Pea Soup : Ultra Alpaca by Berroco

4) Gold/Green : Mohair Splash by Art Yarns  (has that perfect mix of muted metallic sequins and beads!)

For pops of color try:

• Navy : Redheart Soft Yarn

Ruby :  Sunnyside Ellen via Etsy.com

Let’s face it… no matter the trend camo is always in style! … not.

Recently Pantone published their color picks for Spring 2011. Pantone is the leader in color trend; influencing everything from fashion to home decor. If it’s color, they’ve had a hand in making it popular. Last years color of the year, Turquoise was seen everywhere. No doubt each of us dabbled in this lovely color this last year with some project or another. This Spring Pantone’s IT color is “Honeysuckle”, a muted pink. Mary and I have our own opinions, but pink is not showing any signs of stopping. I wouldn’t say pink is the new black but it’s pretty damn close. We love that this color group can be mixed and match to create any of our signature color stories. All these colors are right up our alley, so much so that we felt the need to share with the masses… SO what better way than help you get your hands on the colors of the upcoming season by featuring Etsy seller’s yarns. (It’s true we’ll find any reason to dig around on Etsy) Support handmade and look haute!!
