Wow! My poor blog has been severely neglected! I don't even remember how to add new posts/pics. Let's see if this works....
Here's my newest Leisure Arts book. I have another one due out any day now, and a book which includes my crochet Shawler to be released in July!

Newest Design - The Sharf! I call it that because it's a combination Shawl/Scarf. It's a versatile piece that can be worn many ways. You can make it into a skinny scarf, or a medium width scarf - or you can make it as wide as you want so it will cover your shoulders like a shawl. Make it longer by starting out with a longer chain (multiples of 11).
It can be wrapped around your neck twice for a warm, cozy neck wrap, or let it dangle to your thighs like a rock star! Add an Optional edging, included in the easy instructions. Use any worsted weight or chunky/bulky yarn. Skill level: Easy/Beginner
Stitches used: Dc
Pattern available soon in my Etsy shop.
