Love of Crochet Summer 2015

3 of my wonderful designs are published in the summer issue of Love of Crochet:

1. Beaded Box Stitch Shawl – The square stitch pattern on this stunning wrap is light and airy — perfect for summer. Finish it off with a beaded edging for an elegant look that you’ll want to wear every day.

LOC_BeadedBoxStitch_800

2. Meadowlark Dress – Enjoy the sunshine as you walk through budding gardens in this stunning dress. The pineapple motifs on the skirt create incredible drape for a
swingy shape that flatters every figure.

LOC_Meadowlark_800

3. Grecian Puff Shawl – Phenomenal texture and a versatile, triangular shape make this shawl a must-have. The airy fabric is a fabulous counterpoint to the thickness of the puff stitches, producing a lovely accessory for those cool summer evenings. Drape it loosely over your shoulders when the sun is shining, then wrap it around your neck when dusk brings a brisk chill.
