Hi & welcome! Thank you so much for stopping by! I hope everyone had a great Christmas this year! This year certainly felt like it flew by! I still managed to get some patterns done this year! I've been slowing down because life is getting busier but I hope that I will have more patterns in 2020!
Today's pattern release is the Crochet Marlo Cape in collaboration with We Crochet. This cape is designed with Billow. It's thick & thin giving it s very interesting texture! This is the 3rd of and last pattern I've released in collaboration with them. Hopefully you'll see more in the next year! Check out the other 2 patterns!
If you still haven't heard, WeCrochet is a sister company of Knit Picks. Head on over at Crochet.com and check it out! They are dedicated all to crochet, with tools, patterns, yarn, and more!
Let's talk about the yarn I used! The Billow yarn is a thick & thin texture and 100% Pima Cotton. I've worked with Biggo before and have always loved it. I have many allergies (unfortunately) and find that cotton is my best friend when it comes to garments!
There is an ad-free pattern available for purchase for just $3 in my shops if you'd like to purchase the pdf.
