Winter '16 Holiday Crochet Along: All the Stars Above - Part Two
Saturday, October 8, 2016
So how is your hook? I have been loving working the beautiful star stitch in All the Stars Above pattern.
If you'd like, you can see the entire crochet along schedule & details about getting started here.
All the Stars Above is a beautiful, L-shaped shawl made using a large hook and DK weight yarn for elegant drape. If you're familiar with the star stitch, you'll adore its relaxing repetition. If you're new to the star stitch, you'll have a new skill to add to your crochet knowledge base.
We'll be crocheting this beauty in three parts: doing half in one week, half in the second week, (pausing a week to catch up), and doing all the finishing in the final week. So by the end of October, you should have a lovely shawl to wear or share.
We are very fortunate that we have several excellent sponsors who have really stepped up to make this CAL lots of fun for us! At the end of the CAL, you can enter to win a fantastic prize package!!
Fairmount Fibers is the US distributor of the luscious Manos del Uruguay yarns. They are offering a prize package consisting of two skeins of their new Silk Blend in winner’s choice of color, semi-solid, or space-dyed. This is enough to make the Lace Ripple Fans Shawlette! Are you squealing yet?
"New for 2016: Soft and shiny, Silk Blend gives good stitch definition to cables and other texture patterns. Its jewel-like colors work beautifully in stranded colorwork designs."
Ask yourself if you'd like two skeins of Manos del Uruguay in silk. If yes, and if you live in North America, you could win! I think it's awesome that you get to pick out whatever color you want. So many possibilities...
And, of course, thanks so much to each of our giveaway sponsors:
