Featured Member Crochet: October 23

Good evening from Starting Chain, a community for people who love to crochet. We like to feature some of the work done by our readers. Our hobby is an old one but today people create everything from heirloom Irish lace to modern clothing, afghans, accessories and toys. We hope that tonight’s sampling gives you some ideas for projects you may want to take up.

“Ripplesweater for my Grand daughter…posting link to pattern below. FYI madethis with baby sport weight yarn and G hook and it will fit a 3 year old. ” — Cheryl Nichols.

Cheryl gave the link to one of the 3 YouTube videos for making the Baby Ripple Sweater. The videos were made by Yolanda Soto Lopez. It has a very vintage look and is timeless. Thank you, Cheryl, for sharing it with us. It is beautiful.

Bonnie Schwartz shared this closeup of one of her Crocodile Flowers. The pattern by Joyce Lewis is available on Ravelry and offers so many options for intriguing colors. Thanks, Bonnie, for your post.

I’mgetting there with this scrap afghan that’s actually the new bedspread for my Cal King! I had to stand on the couch to get it all and where I’m at! I learned to do the join-as-you-go hexagons at https://bit.ly/kxLxh.” — Shawna Newton.

We love it, Shawna. It is bright, electric and modern–and a great use for scraps.

Thanks to everyone who has shared their crochet projects with Starting Chain. With Fall here, we can start stitching more warmth for those around us. Yarn Over!
