monday May 23, 2016: crochet is cool ~ click here to comment May 23, 2016 15:59
You might feel as though I am knit biased, but really I love all crafts and especially love crochet too! Crochet, I feel is a bit harder to make modern; too many doilies are not very cool. I am happy to say, today you can find many cool crochet patterns. Vogue Knitting started coming out with a yearly or bi-yearly magazine exclusive to crochet. Noro Magazine has also included some cool crochet in with the knits. Love Crochet recently started an exclusive site just for crochet as well. Love it!
Although I have not designed a lot of crochet I did design a simple and quick crochet cowl called the Supersonic Crochet Cowl. If you already know the basics of crochet this cowl can take under an hour to make which is ideal for gift giving! If you want to learn to crochet, this is a great basic piece you can start with.
We also offer this pattern as a crochet kit! It comes with the pattern, yarn and hook (optional). We use Malabrigo Rasta which is a beautiful hand dyed 100% merino yarn; it comes in some pretty cool colors!
If you are not into crocheting but want the cowl we also offer it handmade "ready to wear!" All the Supersonic Crochet Cowls are handmade locally in Vancouver, BC Canada.
