51 Degrees North - Hooded Cowl by Kim Miller
 
Skill Level: Intermediate

Perfect for layering...this trendy, crochet hood pattern was designed with comfort and warmth in mind!

This crochet pattern calls for 5½ balls of Knit Picks® Brava Bulky [3.5 oz (100 g)/136 yds (124 meters) per ball] which is a bulky weight yarn, a 6.50 mm (K) crochet hook (or size needed to obtain gauge), and 1 – 44 mm (1¾”) button (or size needed). Also, this well written pattern is complete with illustrations to help you to successfully complete your project.

The crochet instructions are written for one size only, and will fit most adults. The finished hood measures approximately 20” long, 12.5” wide at its narrowest point (or 25” when laying flat), and 17” wide at its widest point.

sneak peek.

I am normally quite camera shy, but with my children growing up and moving away models are getting harder and harder to come by...so here it is...my modeling debut and a sneak peek.


 
 
The crochet pattern for this warm and snuggly hood should be up sometime next week.

quatrefoil throw - new crochet pattern by tara schreyer.

Skill Level: Easy

The quatrefoil is a geometric design that I am in love with. In this design, I’ve incorporated it with another one of my loves, that of filet crochet. Puts a modern spin on an old classic!

I chose to create this throw in a cotton blend, which gave it beautiful drape and some weight although done in a finer fiber. You can easily switch up its look and create a larger blanket by working it up in a heavier yarn. I can’t wait to see some of your projects!!

The pattern calls for 30 balls (3300 yards) of Knit Picks Shine Sport which is a fingering (2) weight but any comparable yarn can be substituted.

The throw measures 56” (142 cm) wide x 76” (193 cm) length.

The pattern consists of a chart of the quatrefoil design along with a few written instructions to get you started and written instructions for the border.

sneak peek.

This blanket has been in the works for quite some time, but as we finish up these winter months, and head into beautiful spring this seemed like the perfect time of year to release it!!!  It is made with a blended cotton, so lighter than your average throw, but still warm and cozy.


This afghan is made using the popular filet crochet technique but done with a modern twist. I'm hard at work and hoping to release the pattern very soon.

new crochet pattern - weekend cowl by kim miller.

Weekend Cowl by Kim Miller
Skill Level: Easy

This gorgeous v-shaped cowl will layer well with a sweater or your favorite peacoat. Plus, this crochet pattern only uses 1½ balls of Lion Brand® Wool Ease Thick and Quick, so it works up fast, making it a great weekend project!

This crochet pattern calls for a 9.00 mm (M) crochet hook, 1½ balls of Lion Brand® Wool Ease Thick and Quick [6 ounces (170 g)/108 yards (98 meters) per ball], which is a super bulky (6). The cowl is worked flat in one piece and the pattern calls for the following stitches: single crochet, half double crochet, and single crochet 2 together.

Finished Size: When laying flat the finished cowl measures 81.3 cm (32”) long, 20.3 cm (8”) wide at its narrowest point, and 26.7 cm (10½”) wide at its widest point.
 
The stunning buttons pictured on the cowl are from a local B.C. artist that creates handmade buttons from polymer clay. If you would like to see more of their creations then we invite you to visit Dave and Carolyn Good of 2GoodClaymates.

new crochet pattern - blue mist cowl by tara schreyer.

http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/blue-mist-cowl 

http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/blue-mist-cowl

Skill Level: Beginner

This slip stitched cowl is light and airy but will provide plenty of warmth during the cool months. With the chunky yarn and the large hook, it makes a perfect project for a beginner or a quick project for an advanced crocheter. Although the stitches create a different pattern on each side, both are equally beautiful making it completely reversible and adding interest when twisted around the neck.

This pattern calls for 2 skeins of Cascade Yarns Baby Alpaca Chunky which gives it amazing drape and coziness but any chunky yarn can be used as a substitute.

Finished Size (if blocked):  11" wide x 54" long
