Rowan Spring Crochet-Along

This Spring sees the launch of a new Crochet-Along from Rowan Yarns using the new Summerlite 4 ply 100% cotton yarn.

The CAL features 4 different projects designed by fab Rowan Designer Lisa Richardson – including a baby blanket, a wrap, a cushion and a scarf – a great range of projects with something to suit everyone including those of you that are new to crochet and fancy giving it a go.

You can view the shopping list on Rowan’s website now and the first pattern/motif will be released on March 25th.

There are 3 colourways to choose from – pastel, vibrant & blues. I’m opting for the vibrant colourway and I’m going to be making a scarf. I hope you will join me 🙂

Here’s a link to Lisa’s You Tube video for Rowan, introducing the CAL:

The designs will be made up from seven different motifs and each pattern stage will include approximately ten motifs for the blanket and shawl, and four to six for the cushion and scarf, with eight stages in total.

Finish Sizes
Completed Baby Blanket measures approx 101 cm (40 in) wide by 107 cm (42 in) long, including trim.
