We're making our way into winter and we're happy to bring you a very special cozy garment from a very special designer. We'll let Lianka introduce herself below but don't forget to submit your finished Elemental Triangle Cowl to our gallery here for the chance to win. We're giving away $500 worth of gift cards!
Now onto our November CAL...
I’m Lianka Azulay, designer from Bonita Patterns, also known as “Crocodile Stitch addict.” This November, I’m proud to pair up with the makers of my favorite hooks in the world, Furls, to host a CAL for my Crocodile Stitch Fingerless Gloves.
Sample in Merino Dream Sunset Shades colorway
These whimsical gloves feature the unique Crocodile Stitch and a knit-look crocheted ribbed pattern. This is a quick project, ideal for a last-minute gift, and they are also popular among those who sell finished crochet items.
If you have been wanting to learn the Crocodile Stitch, this is a great chance to learn, step-by-step, with support if you have questions. The project is rated "Intermediate," but if you are an adventurous beginner and know the basic crochet stitches (slip stitch, chain and double crochet) you can tackle this with the help of our CAL!
Sample in Merino Dream Rainforest Shades colorway
We are using two options of self-stripping yarn from Bonita Yarns.
You will need two skeins or 400 yards of sport (baby) weight yarn. My samples use Sunset Shades (yellows and browns) and Rainforest Shades (greens and browns), but I have picked other four beautiful colorways for this project. You can choose your color HERE.
The second option is the 100% acrylic yarn for those allergic to wool or who prefer machine washable pieces. You'll need two skeins of this yarn. You can choose your color HERE.
Use promo code ‘BONITAFURLS’ at check out to get 15% off your yarn.
NOTE: Some yarn customers were expecting to receive the pattern online. The notice you see on the receipt is regarding my premium (paid) patterns. The Crocodile Stitch Fingerless Gloves is FREE and will not be sent to you by email. You'll learn it in weekly installments here in our CAL.
Issues, questions with your yarn order? Email email@example.com.
* Stitch marker
* Small embroidery needle for weaving in your ends
Go ahead and get your yarn in these beautiful colors while you can and while supplies last. In the September and October CALs, so many people joined in that a few participants experienced delays in getting their yarn.
We'll be posting a quick Crocodile stitch tutorial next Monday (Nov 14th) and then the instructions for the first part of this exciting pattern on November 21st. Stay tuned for more crochet goodness. For now, have fun with our November Crochet-A-Long Giveaway.
There are lots of chances this month to win some fabulous things.
