Yarn Adventure Sneak Peek

It’s time for the first Yarn Adventure Sneak Peek! Yeah!

Every week, I will show you what patterns I’m working on – not the full project, only a little sneak peek! I hope my yarn gossip will be fun! And help me to actually finish something. Which is something I’m really bad at – so a little pressure is welcome.

My next knitting pattern is a shawl worked sideways – an easy and relaxing knit. I bet everybody has this one skein in his/her stash that defies all patterns. No matter what you try, nothing looks right. But sometimes, simple is best – a bit of stockinette, a bit of garter stitch. I plan to use up the whole skein, see how long the shawl can get.

I love to combine colors that you would never expect a sane person to combine! The green yarn in the photo is actually neon green, but together with the white it isn’t as overwhelming as you would expect. The shape I choose is an octagon in combination with different stitches – crossed stitches, clusters and mesh.

This weekeend, I’m going to release a new pattern for a snuggly cowl – here’s a little eye candy for you:

Thanks for reading, happy hooking and knitting!

Ready to be a yarn adventurer?

It’s only January and I already fulfilled one of my New Year’s resolutions: start a blog about my knitting and crochet adventures!

I started designing my own patterns in October last year. It felt like the right time to embark on my own craft journey. On this blog, I will show you sneak peeks of what I’m working on, talk about my creative process and my published patterns. I try to design patterns that are customizable and interesting to knit or crochet. For me, knitting or crocheting has always felt like an adventure – and I hope that it will be the same for you!

At the moment, I publish at ravelry – my username is crochetCroco. Head over to ravelry and poke around in my pattern store if you like: http://www.ravelry.com/stores/the-yarn-adventurer
