I'm a knitter to the depths of my soul, but you know, some crochet projects are just so compelling that I vow to learn. Take for instance, everything on my Crochet Pinterest board. Isn't it interesting that Dionne from the Berroco Mixer trunk show is right there too!
My other current crochet crush is the Polly Poncho that Mary designed for May First Friday.
Named for her beautiful and trendy California daughter, the Polly Poncho is stylish and fun. Perfect over a tank or a tee with fringe that is current and modern. It's that third layer that makes an outfit and adds a splash of color to your look.
Not only is Polly adorable, it's a perfect introduction to crochet. Nothing too complicated, just chain (which you probably already know) slip stitch, single crochet, and triple crochet. That's it- that's all you need to know.
Smooth Modern Cotton is easy to crochet, light and cool to the touch, and machine washable to boot. The hardest part will be choosing from the dozens of mouthwatering colors. Mary will be on hand to help you get started this First Friday, May 1. You can whip this up in no time flat. Pattern is complimentary with 2 skeins of Berroco Modern Cotton. Bring, or buy at the shop, a size G hook and some locking stitch markers. See you then!
