It has been 18 years since Vogue last came out with an issue dedicated to crochet so I'm very pleased and excited!!! This gorgeous collection highlights the beauty and versatility of crochet and is a must see. Check out the previewhere.
Wrap up in this luxuriously thick and cozy decorative throw. This beautiful
cabled throw is crocheted using a N (10.00 mm) crochet hook and super bulky yarn
so it works up fast and makes a beautiful gift that will be treasured for
The finished throw measures approximately 36” (91.4 cm) wide by
58” (147.3 cm) long.
This detailed crochet pattern has lots of
illustrations to help you to successfully complete you project. The pattern
calls for 12 balls of Lion Brand® Wool Ease Thick and Quick and uses the following
stitches: hdc, dc, fpdc, bpdc, fptr and reverse sc.
We are always thrilled to hear from our customers! We love to see how our crochet designs have inspired them to create something wonderful for themselves or someone that they love. We recently heard from Angela, who shared such beautiful photos of her finished projects that we just had to share the gorgeousness with you. She used the crochet pattern "Hanging Storage Pouch" and she did two different versions of it.
The first one is made up of a very thick wool. So thick, in fact, that she mentioned that it could even serve as a freestanding basket if she were to omit the hanging piece. I love that idea!
The second one she made up using a finer cotton blend and it is equally as beautiful!! You can visit Angela's blog for more great photos of these pouches and be sure to check out all the beautiful items that she has in her shop "Simple Things Small Joys". A shop full of eye candy to make your space dreamy!!!
