Hello, and welcome to my brand new blog!
I start my first post in a rather over excited mood, having just released my first self published pattern:
I’ve had patterns published before through my work with the lovely people at Artesano yarns (do pop over to their website if you can and sign up for their newsletter, which includes free patterns), but this is the first time that I’ve taken the plunge and done the whole process from idea, to knitted sample, to pattern and layout, and finally to publishing, by myself, although I did have some help from my friend and colleague Les, who very kindly test knitted and pattern checked for me, making this gorgeous version of Moon River in the process:
Thank you Les!
Moon River is a little crescent-shaped shawlette with a simple crochet edging that should be manageable for even those new to crochet. It is worked from the bottom up, then shaped with short rows and decreases into a gentle crescent shape. I’ve also incorporated shaping into the tips like this:
The whole shawlette is then edged with a simple scalloped crochet edging. Et viola! One pretty little shawlette that shows off the beautiful colours in just 2 skeins of Noro Silk Garden Sock yarn.
Moon River is available to buy on Ravelry or here:
I hope you like it – I would love to see your own versions!
Thanks for taking the time to pop over and have a look, I hope that you might become a regular visitor.
