Last Friday I brought you the wrap I made in honor of those affected by hurricanes Harvey, Irma and Maria. You can find the free pattern here.
Today I wanted to show you how versatile this pattern is. This wrap can be worn as a super scarf, as a scoodie, cowl or as a shawl wrap. One pattern, lots of different looks! To make this pattern I used Lion Brand Yarns Scarfie in the Oxford-Claret colorway. This yarn is a bulky weight, wool acrylic blend. The colors blend together beautifully; I really liked working with this yarn and will be planning other projects with it! See more pictures in the gallery below of the many ways you can wear this project!!
The summer of 2017 is almost over; once again it has passed to quickly for me. It has been a very busy summer for me. For the first time in nearly 6 years I have gone back to work. Finally healed and no longer a patient I can truly say I am a survivor!!
I have done a lot of knitting this summer, to the left is my latest project. This pretty scarf is done in Lion Brand Yarns Mandala in the Genie colorway. I have found that I enjoy knitting just as much as I enjoy crocheting.
I opened an Etsy shop this summer too, it is called Sherry's Corner Store, where everything is handmade. I just listed the Genie Scarf, you can find it at the blue link above.
I have gotten away from social media; a refreshing change, now that autumn is almost upon us I will become more active here and on all of my social media pages. I will begin sharing projects and pattern links again from a group I belong to on Facebook.
I have a new pattern in the works, I am hoping to have it finished and tech edited soon. I am going to call it "Hurricane Wrap" and donate any proceeds from the sale of pattern pdf's to the Red Cross, to help all of the people in Texas, Florida and the Virgin Islands devastated by Hurricanes Harvey and Irma. I have also created a fundraiser, you can find it under the "Hurricane Relief tab at the top of the page. This is a secure site and no information will be shared or used in anyway. The pattern will be available in Sherry's Pattern Store for $2.99
I hope that you have all enjoyed your summer. What exciting things did you do? Let me know in the comments section below! See you all again soon. ~ Sherry
I recently found this wonderful asymetrical scarf pattern on Ravelry called Normilintu by Heide Alander, this lovely knitted pattern is available free. You can find it by clicking on the name in blue and you will go right to it's page. This pattern has been translated into several different languages; perfect for everyone. I found this scarf easy to make, the pattern well written and very well received by my Instagram followers.
The yarn I used to make my scarf is called Cotton Select, distributed by BambooMN. This pretty 100% cotton sock weight yarn is very reasonably priced and comes in 25 different colors. I used the milkshake colorway for my scarf. You can find this soft cotton yarn at Bamboomn.
Don't have time to make your own scarf? You can custom order one in my Etsy shop Sherrys Corner Store, where everything is handmade.
My last post I showed you the shawl I made for the Summer Shawl Swap 2017 hosted by Crochet Creations by Leah. You can find her on Instagram @crochetcreationsbyleah or in her Etsy shop at Crochet Creations by Leah. Pop in and see what she's got for sale!!
Today I am showing you the beautiful shawl that showed up on my doorstep Monday. It is called Murcia and you can find the free pattern on Ravelry. Want to see more lovely creations? Search #Summershawlswap2017 in Instagram.
The summer shawl swap works the same as a Secret Santa. I really enjoyed shopping and making a gift for someone else. I was a bit nervous at first, wondering rather my person would like what I made, but I put on my big girl panties and shipped it out!! I will let you know what she thinks when I hear from her.
I am participating in the summer shawl swap of 2017 on Instagram. Each person makes a shawl and sends it to their "secret crafter". To see some of the other shawls that have been made just search #summershawlswap2017 on Instagram. The pattern I chose to make is called "Mine Once More" by Michele DuNaier. This shawl is worked from the top down, which was a change for me as most of the shawls I have made have been from the point up or just a rectangle. I have created a link (in blue) to the pattern listing in Ravelry. This is a premium pattern but well worth every penny.
The yarn I used for this shawl is called "Dancing Feet" a sock weight yarn that is a 70/30 wool/nylon blend. It is available in 8 different colors and you can find it at BambooMN.com
I found this pattern easy to make, easy to read and very well written!!
