I designed the Friendship Prayer Shawl in 2020, and it has been a bestseller for the past 3 years. In the true spirit of friendship, I am now sharing it with you for free here on the Straight Hooked blog! I used Lion Brand Mandala Ombre in the Tranquil colorway. I absolutely loved working with this yarn. It is so soft and easy to work with, and the color changes are just perfection!
I am so excited to share this month's edition of Hooked In because A) I made a new friend I want to introduce you to, and B) my new friend just interviewed me on her podcast! Every month, I post an interview with a crochet designer friend of mine. I want you to be able to meet some new crochet friends and not be only bombarded by my blog posts and design style, so this is a really fun way for me to promote my fellow designers and break up the monotony of you having to read only my posts!
Things are calming down a bit here at Straight Hooked Headquarters, and I am thrilled to introduce you to another one of my friends today! I am delighted to have my friend Eventine share a bit more about her and her business with you...
Things have been quite crazy here at Straight Hooked Headquarters, and I am trying to adjust and keep crocheting, but wow, is that a challenge!
The Scrunchie Carnival pattern set is a great way to use up scrap yarn you have. These work up super quickly and make for great gifts or quick craft fair projects. I love how they came out using different colorways of Lion Brand Ferris Wheel, but then again I'm sure you know how partial I am to the Ferris Wheel line of yarns.
If you are unfamiliar with the Hooked In series, I introduced it a million years ago back in 2020, and have decided to revive the series this year. Each month, I interview a fellow crochet designer so you can get to know more about them and maybe find a new designer you love! Today, I am sitting down with Nichola from Elimee Designs.
I went on a huge designing-scarves-using-Ferris-Wheel kick this fall, and each of them will be available as Forever Free patterns here at Straight Hooked. The Wild Violets Scarf is fun to make and creates a gorgeous texture everyone will rave about!
