Summer Lovin' Cowl

Summer Lovin’, Susan’s newest pattern (available for free with purchase), is a quick and fun crochet cowl made out of just 1 ball of Zooey or Zooey Dappled, and a size G crochet hook.

The cowl, worked in the round, features half double crochet, double crochet, bobbles, and a fascinating way of working wrong side stitches to create a horizontal chain on the right side.

Zooey is a linen/cotton blend and a perfect weight for a summer accessory. If you would like to learn how to do these stitches, you are in luck! Susan is teaching Summer Lovin'! sign up for the class here.

Zooey comes in gorgeous summery colors, in both dappled and solids. Take a look at some of the options below, or browse the entire Zooey line here! Which one will you pick? And why pick just one?

Verna's Poncho

Verna’s Poncho is knit using a simple lace pattern that is repeated throughout the project. Rows of Canyon yarn alternate with rows of Sea yarn from end to end.

The pattern is knit side-to-side in one piece. Both yarns are carried along, leaving only a few ends to weave in.

The pattern is one size. Finished measurements: 33 inches wide by 33 inches in length. You only need one skein of Canyon (sport weight) and one skein of Sea (fingering).

The perfect accessory for day or evening. Enjoy!

Mary Gavan has generously offered to give this pattern for free to our customers who purchase the yarn to make Verna's Poncho! If you purchase online, leave us a note that you would like the Ravelry code.

Look (below) at how gorgeous Mary Gavan Canyon and Sea look paired. We have put together these kits, and as always, you are welcome to come up with your own combination.

AiryLight

From Susan Chastain:

"I moved to Flagstaff from South Florida a few years ago. My knitting buddies there, and my new knitting friends from Phoenix, are always looking for light weight projects to make and wear in warmer climates. Having made many shawls with sock weight yarn on larger needles, I was inspired to design this light and flowing top with swingy gussets at the sides, and fun lace pattern stitches."

AiryLight uses a tonal and a variegated sock weight yarn knit on US size 8 needles. For the 36" and 40” sizes, you need 2 – 100 gm skeins of a solid or tonal for the main front and back sections, plus 1 – 100 gm skein of a coordinating variegated for the gussets, upper bodice, and short sleeves. For the 44” size, you will need additional skein of each.

The pattern features a simple eyelet pattern for the variegated sections, and gives the options for 2 different allover lace patterns for the main front and back sections. The green model uses the “arrowhead lace” pattern, while the red model uses the “diamond lace”.

Susan put some colorful kits together! Browse them below! We think there is something for everyone. If you would like to create your own, we would LOVE to help! Visit all of our fingering weight yarns here, or give us a call to set up a virtual shopping appointment.
