Crochet--Lion Brand Yarn creations

Hi all,
  I just had to share with you the projects my DD and I made with our Lion Brand Yarn we received for review.  I used my Vanna's Colors-Violet for this "Crosshatch Cowl" that I found on Crochet Pattern Central.  The picture really doesn't do this pattern justice!  I am definitely not a photographer, and probably should whip out the nicer camera instead of my mobile phone. :)

  This pattern was a lot of fun to work on.  I just love the scalloped edge and I can't say enough about the yarn.  It is soooo soft, fluffy, and easy to work with.  Just pure luxuriousness as my DD would say! :)  I can't wait for the cooler temperatures so that I can wear it.






My daughter took her Vanna's Colors-Marina and made a scarf.  She decided she just wanted to do a simple half double crochet this time.  She too looks forward to some nice cold days to wear our handmade softies!  She enjoyed this yarn very much as well!  I think we both are going to hint around for some this Christmas! ;)


  So, what have you been crocheting?  I'd love to know! :)


Happy Crocheting!
Jennifer

Your daughter did a great job on that scarf! I really need you to move a little closer so you can teach my daughters how to crochet! ;)

Both are beautiful!!! I wish I knew how to crochet better, I need to practice. I can't find my hand loom right now, so I haven't done a thing with my yarn winnings, except look at it on my shelf. Thanks for sharing, have a great second half of the week...

I love that cowl--and it's in my favorite color!!! I'm such a fan of Lion Brand yarn and their patterns. You both did a great job!

Take care.

I love the colors and the pattern choices worked so well with the yarn. I'm glad I learned now, but I do wish I had learned as a child. I am working on encouraging the younger members of the family to try.

Thanks for stopping by!
