Chunky Crochet Cowl & Crochet Sweaters
The Chunky Crochet Cowl (top) is a free pattern from Kara Guzman of Petals to Picots. Manos del Uruguay Serpentina does all the work here; there are no fancy or complicated stitches, making this a great beginner project! Kristen TenDyke’s Herbal Tea Cardigan (bottom left) is included in the October 2017 I Like Crochet. The sweater is worked top down, so you can try it on as your work progresses. Five to eight skeins of Manos del Uruguay Clara are required, depending on size. The Hondius Way Pullover (bottom right) is a unique hybrid of pullover and poncho. A tonal colorway of Alegria showcases a beautiful crochet stitch pattern. Natasha Robarge’s design is part of the Fall 2017 Interweave Crochet issue.
Lundbye Scarf and Entwined Shawl
Little else says Fall like a handknit scarf or shawl to tuck in at your jacket collar or to warm your shoulders. The Lundbye Scarf by Little Church Knits is a simple ribbed scarf with reversible cables. The sample for the knit.wear Fall / Winter 2017 issue is knit in the Foil colorway of Alegria, making it a great go-with-everything accessory. Susanna IC combined simple braided cables with a touch of openwork and a modern asymmetrical shape in the Entwined Shawl. Three skeins of Maxima in Cherrywood and the Holiday 2017 Interweave Knits are all you need to get started on this ingenious shawl.
