Two New Crochet Patterns!

We were contacted a few weeks ago about two new crochet patterns designed by The Cashmere Cheetah.  The first is called The Outback Cowl (see above pic) which uses one skein of our MCN Sock (shown in the colourway The Outback).  The second is called Pebbles Cowl which uses one skein of our Merino Silk Sport (shown in the colourway Wood Smoke).



We loved these designs so much we wanted to share them with all of you! They are lovely, modern one skein crochet patterns which would make for a fast project for you or for gifts.  Please head on over to The cashmere Cheetah's ravelry shop to see more of her designs!

Have a wonderful week!
