Category: CROCHET
Featured Color Group: Fresh / Weathered Wood
Featured Yarn: Vanna’s Choice in White, Pearl Mist and Taupe Mist

The first pattern of the year takes it’s vintage inspiration from the mod ’70s and all it’s plaid and fringe glory.  Keeping a modern silhouette that seems to resonate with needle artists everywhere, we have reinterpreted the cowl.  This crocheted pattern uses a simple mesh stitch along with a weaving technique (don’t worry… super easy and we explain in the pattern) that adds depth and dimension to the plaid itself.  We made our plaid oversized, but feel free to check out http://www.tartanmaker.com/ to design your own plaid.

Color Group: Fresh

We are into the new year, into the first week of the first month. The excitement brings a reinvigorated focus to better ourselves and negative things around us. What was old is new again, much like this month’s color inspiration: Weathered Wood. This Fresh color palette calls to mind the brisk January mornings… perhaps the same mornings many of us are out walking or running in order to reach our recent resolutions. We hope this cool yet inviting palette inspires you to whip up some warm projects this month.

The featured yarns are from Lion Brand’s Vanna’s Choice collection. Shown above in both solids and “mists”, Vanna’s Choice is the perfect for most projects because it is the perfect balance of budget friendly and acrylic softness.
1) White
2) Pearl Mist
3) Taupe Mist
4) Silver Grey
5) Espresso

Vanna’s Choice continues to branch out, recently releasing a Vanna’s GlamourTM collection, giving you even more options to create your own Fresh color story. Mary and I are anxiously waiting for Vanna to come out with a bulky yarn, fingers crossed!
