Gulf Coast Yarn Crawl Joint Project!


Gulf Coast Yarn Crawl Joint Project! 
Pattern: Advent Shawl by Crystal Tea Knits
Yarn: Gulf Coast Yarn Crawl Mini Skeins by Dream 

Linda Spruill has finished this wonderful Advent Shawl by Crystal Tea Knits. The stitch patterns kept her interest and it never got boring! Each of the shops will have just 3 of the colorways in the full exclusive set of Dream in Color Yarn minis that are made with their beautiful fingering Smooshy Cashmere. Each mini skein is 100 yards and the colors are to "dye" for! Make the full tour (or call & order) from each shop to collect the full set! 



Pattern: Nature's Walk Blanket by Sandra Paul 
Yarn: Wool Pop by Universal 

This amazing blanket is made up of squares that are joined and then the border is added in rows around the entire blanket. The squares are so much fun because none of them take very long to crochet and you get to learn many new techniques and stitch patterns. Wool Pop is the perfect yarn for this pattern ~ it is lightweight but will also keep you warm. 



Pattern: Anisie by Katherine Mehls 
Yarn: Uchiwa by Noro 

From Ravelry.com: "A stylish oversized tee is a summer staple, perfect to pop on anytime. This version, worked in the NORO Uchiwa, is knit from one side seam to the other. Garter edges play off the stockinette body, which features subtle shaping. A simple purl ridge delineates the center front and back." This pattern includes instructions for sizes extra small to 5X! 



Pattern: Awesome Hat by Mimi Hill
Yarn: Javanese Dk by Cattails 

This colorway is called Bayou Gator and will make the perfect hat for the hunter in your life! The superwash merino and silk combination make a great yarn for softness and durability.

Pattern: Everyday Sweater by Andrea Mowry
Yarn: Brighton Beach by Universal Yarns
 

 From Ravelry.com: "The Everyday Sweater is knit from the top down (meaning you can try it on as you go and add length to suit your own personal style!), beginning with the collar. You will separate the sleeves placing them on hold while the body is finished and then the sleeves are returned to the needle, picking up stitches for the underarm for a totally seamless sweater!" Linda is using Brighton Beach which is a linen/cotton/acrylic blend and she is very happy with how it is turning out so far. Stop by soon to check out the many beautiful colors of this yarn.

Pattern: Baby Squared Up Jacket by  Yarns

Yarn: Uneek Fingering by Urth Yarns


From Ravelry.com:

"Like crocheted origami, this hexagon-based cardigan starts under the arm and wraps around the body, two identical pieces joined in back. The sleeves extend from one of the six sides and the front and hem are lengthened, all worked in the same classic stitch."
