The Leafy Lace Tunic
Today we are releasing another super pretty pattern- the leafy lace tunic by Susan Sheby. This top can be worn as a dress, a tunic over skinny jeans, or even as a bikini coverup like we’ve shown in these pics. The tunic is oversized, drapey and should fit most body types. The designer Susan came up with a beautiful leafy lace motif that creates a fabric that is a touch sheer. Can't wait to wear this to the beach this Memorial Day weekend! The pattern contains a lace chart, so knowledge of how to read that will help! We used 4 skeins of our Maharani Silk yarn in colorway Champagne. The pattern is now available on Ravelry here.
Daisy Chain Crochet Crown
Today we release another beautiful free pattern- hooray! This pattern was designed by crochet master extrodinaire, Tori Kendrew. It is a dainty crochet crown that works up perfectly in our Daisy Chain yarn. This crown would be perfect for a summer picnic or an outdoor music festival. This pattern comes in 2 sizes, child and adult. The closure is a braided tie so sizing is easily adjustable. Although we recommed Daisy Chain, this pattern would also work well in Rolling Stone, Gypsy Garden or Pixie Dust Mini. Pattern available here. Happy crocheting!
the gorgeous baby patterns & knits by Tricia Drake
I'm at a time in my life when many of my friends are having babies. It is a ton of fun and means lots of baby showers and handknit gifts. For baby pattern ideas, I turned to my good friend Tricia Drake, who wrote a beautiful book called Welcoming Home Baby the Handcrafted Way. Her book is full of the most adorable baby patterns and they are all knit on CHUNKY needles- HOORAY! Even though the knitting time is quick, you're not sacrificing on cuteness. These patterns are to die for cute and so creatively written. In her Etsy shop, she sells patterns for her designs as well as finished hats and baby accessories. Be sure to visit her Etsy shop here and check out the pics below of the hat I knit up and some of my favorite knits that she's done using our yarn. See if you can spot the Pixie Dust & Rolling Stone yarn! Tricky's photos are all done by Brooke Kelly Photography.
My hat! I knit up the Criss Cross Hat from her book in Sister yarn - soft grey heather & turquoise heather. Check out more details on Ravelry here.
Seriously does it get cuter than this hat? Insane!
