Hortensia in Rowan Summerlite 4plySo why not treat yourself to a new knitting project for spring?  There a plenty of gorgeous things to choose from in the new Spring/Summer ranges, such as this pretty tunic from Rowan’s Summerlite 4ply book.

Rowan Crochet Along

Or why not try a bit of crochet?  The Rowan Crochet Along has started this week and the patterns are free to download on the Rowan website (click the picture above to download the first set of patterns).  The project uses Rowan Summerlite 4ply and there are three colour schemes to choose from, which you can read more about in our blog post here.

Misaki in Rowan Cotton Lustre

If you fancy a cardi for summer, we love this design by Sarah Hatton from the Rowan Cotton Lustre book. We have this sample in our shop and it’s proved very popular thanks to it’s gorgeous drape and flattering lines. Cotton Lustre is a tape yarn which knits up into a beautifully smooth fabric with a wonderful drape and subtle sheen. It has lovely stitch definition too!

Nilgiri in Rowan Tetra CottonOur last (but not least) favourite pick is this top from the Rowan Tetra Cotton book.  Knitted sideways, it has an interesting texture thanks to the columns of slipped stitches running horizontally across the garment.  A DK weight cotton yarn with a surprisingly lightweight construction, Tetra Cotton is a lovely yarn for summer, knitting up relatively quickly, but producing garments without too much bulk.

So go on, treat yourself!  Don’t forget to use the code ROW2015 at the checkout to receive your discount.

Interweave Crochet Spring 2015 is here!

Spring has sprung and it brings with it the latest issue of Interweave Crochet magazine!

Interweave Crochet Spring 2015Filled with intriguing techniques and beautiful projects, this latest issue of Interweave Crochet is a real treat.

Sapphire SweaterWe love this pretty summer sweater by Doris Chan, which would look just as good with your favourite jeans or a summer dress.  Why not try it in Sirdar Cotton DK?

Zen SweaterThe striped Zen Sweater by Natasha Robarge has caught our eye too, we love the subtle lace stripes and the pops of colour amongst the grey background!  We think it would crochet up beautifully in Debbie Bliss Rialto 4ply or Fyberspates Scrumptious 4ply.

Dogwood ScarfIf you fancy trying a new technique, why not have a go at the Dogwood Scarf by Suzann Thompson?  This scarf uses a crochet technique based on freeform crochet and Irish crochet, called crochet charm lace.  A fascinating and very detailed tutorial is included, allowing you not only to make the scarf exactly as pictured, but also giving you the knowledge needed to branch out and make a crochet charm lace project of your own design.

Really inspirational!  We can’t wait to try it out.  If you fancy making your own Dogwood scarf, Fyberspates Vivacious DK has some beautiful hand dyed colours similar to those shown, or you could try Debbie Bliss Rialto DK or even Juniper Moon Farm Moonshine.

You can find Interweave Crochet Spring 2015 on our website here.

Happy Crocheting!
