As you are probably aware we are huge fans of Jane Crowfoot. Her eye for colour, structure and texture just take your breath away. Most of you will know her crochet designs but she is also a cracking knit designer as you can see over on our website.
Ever since she launched her first Crochet club in 2011, Janes CALs have become almost legendary. Her latest offering is called the Sunshine and Showers CAL and we are so thrilled that she has decided to offer Yarn Stories as one of her yarn options. You can see how wonderfully the colours work together here.
Sunshine and Showers is actually a relaunch of a year-long mystery CAL that ran in Crochet Now. It’s a generous blanket that is crocheted in strips over the course of 12 months. Each month Jane will release the latest instalment free on her blog although you can also buy it as a pdf download for £0.95 per instalment.
A new stitch pattern and technique will be showcased in each instalment, helping the crocheter to build their techniques and skills as they go. The design of each strip is seasonal, reflecting the time of year it will be launched. Of course, they are all just plain gorgeous.
The first strips have just been launched and we can’t wait to get our hooks into this project.
