New Crochet Pattern + Kits!

I learned an exciting fact over the summer, and that’s that Cotton Carpet Warp 8/4 Yarn and crochet go together like peanut butter and jelly – you don’t have to use them at the same time but they’re just so perfect for one another, you won’t be able to resist the temptation. With the new Waiting Room - Crocheted Shawl, crocheters of all levels can enjoy this match made in heaven.

The Waiting Room - Crocheted Shawl is a super easy top-down shawl. A one-row repeat is all you’ll need to remember, and single crochet throughout keeps things simple while at the same time creating a smooth fabric with beautiful drape. The pattern gives instructions for the shawl with stripes along the outer border as shown, but the simplicity of this project means you can do anything you want with the colors. In fact, I’d LOVE to use one of the Katia Ombre Cotton packs for a more dramatically colorful shawl.Katia Ombre Cotton Kit Yarn

Cotton Carpet Warp 8/4 Yarn comes in so many colors, we decided to make a few combinations into kits.  Each kit includes the pattern and more than enough yarn to make the project.

I named this pattern “Waiting Room” because it spent most of the summer stuffed in my messy purse. I carted this shawl all over the country, working on it in the airport, at the beach, and even at a bar or two. I sheepishly recall one embarrassing afternoon when my boss found this shawl, unfinished and nearly trampled on the floor of my car. Not only is Cotton Carpet Warp sturdy and affordable, it’s machine wash and dry-able. In fact, this material will only get better with each wash as it softens to perfection. Make it anyplace, wear it anyplace. Just be careful not to step on it ;)

(Note from said boss… We clearly advocate rigorous product testing – go ahead, give it your worst – it still looks great!)
