New crochet patterns : the Petunia cowl & crop top!

Aussi en / Also in frFrançais

Want to know what’s really cool?  Collaborating with people whose yarns are fantabulous!  Here is my most recent such endeavour, this time with Illimani Yarn & more specifically the Royal I line (100% Royal Alpaca).

What’s this: This is the Petunia crop-top & matching cowl. Patterns are sold separately or as a kit at the links below.

Why should I make this: You’ll have a hard time finding a softer fiber than royal alpaca. Worn against your body, it’ll bring you instant happiness. This crop top, and the matching cowl, are made using a stitch that mimics a field of flowers. Perfect for layering, these 2 items will keep you warm now that the temperature is changing!

When will this get the most use: When it gets chilly!

Who is it for: Your chilly friends!

Where do I start: This pattern is rated Intermediate – You’ll need to be comfortable with crochet. You will need 500-600-700 of Worsted weight yarn (used here, Illimani Yarn Royal 1) & a 5 mm hook. Other notions: a yarn needle, and some stitch markers.


You’ll find these patterns in all of my shops:
