Chevron Lace Shrug by Glamour 4 You - Pattern Review


I was fortunate enough to be able to test this beautiful Chevron Lace Shrug by Glamour 4 You. It is amazing!!! I have been so excited to tell you about it because I just LOVE it!!!

Not only are chevrons HUGE in the fashion world right now, they are actually pretty easy to work once you get the hang of it. The Chevron Lace Shrug is a great pattern for beginning "chevroners." There is a video to help and the pattern itself is so well written. 


The pattern was written up as a yarn review of Red Heart Boutique Treasure and let me tell you, you get the full enjoyment of that yarn in this pattern. The stitches are simple which lets the yarn speak. It would be really great for any yarn that has a lot of color or texture. The basic stitches really let the yarn to all the work in this pattern.

I give the pattern 5 out of 5 stars. It is easy for beginners, it includes a video to help with stitches that may be complicated and it works up really quickly. Great pattern and a great accessory to wear out on the town. It is designed to be a little big, so if you would like yours to be smaller and closer fitting I would make a size smaller than you normally do. I generally wear a woman's medium and this is how the medium size Chevron Lace Shrug fit. Ann includes directions on how to measure to you can see what size would be best for you if you have any questions before you start.



Are you ready to make your own? You should be, it is sooo easy and fun! Here is the link to the Chevron Lace Shrug. You can find other free patterns of Ann's on her WEBSITE and you can follow her on Facebook for updates on the new patterns she has coming. Make sure you leave her a comment and tell her what you think when you're done making yours.
As always,
Be Happy!

Owl Dish Scrubbie

Here is the window dressing promised in the Scrubbie Teaser Post from a couple weeks ago! How freaking adorable are these little owls???? I was so excited when my friend came to me with this idea! I approached Lorene from Cre8tion Crochet and asked her what she thought about me linking to her post and I was soooo glad that she was ok with it! Look how cute these are!!!!! 
Alright, so step one is going to be to complete the scrubbie from the previous post, found HERE. Once you have completed that you can follow along with the rest of the pattern here:
Materials  Cotton yarn in as many colors as you like. (You will want to use cotton so that it absorbs water and is more durable for repeated washings. I (5.5 mm) Hook Yarn needle Extra strips of nylon net material from previous step. You are going to stuff the owl with it.
Notes You can put a scrubbie in front, or in back or in both places. However you think it will work best! I have completed one owl with the scrubbie in the front (the orange an…

Chevron Love Afghan

Let's get ready to CHEVROOOON!!!
Woohoo!!! This pattern has been tested and is now ready for you to all enjoy! It's actually pretty simple. I think you all will be pleasantly impressed. I had so much fun making this afghan. I haven't made one in about 5 yrs. I got into a slump and between this chevron afghan and another that has me busy currently, I have come back into the world of afghans! I LOVE making them again! : D HOORAY! Also, for me, it was so fun and refreshing to be making this in boy colors. I have two girls so it isn't often that I get to play around with blues and greens and it was so so much fun!

If you are a member of pretty much any crochet group on social media I'm betting by now you have heard of or seen the new planned pooling argyle craze. To catch you up in case you have no idea what I am talking about: color pooling with yarn is what happens when you work with a variegated yarn and the colors either seem to group together or form distinguishable patterns within your finished item. I'm sure you've made a hat or and somehow the green in the variegated yarn always seems line up or something similar. Planned pooling is basically planning ahead of time to make your variegated yarn come together in a way that creates a …
