I’ve recently revamped the format of one of my earliest patterns from 2013, The Stacked Shells Purse, and then it dawned on me that I never actually blogged about it!! So, without further ado, introducing:
The Stacked Shells Purse!
This pattern is super simple for the advanced beginner crocheter and is perfect for last minute gifts because it works up quickly. Cotton is recommended but you can switch up the yarn to add a little more fun, just be sure to work that gauge so you don’t end up with something super large or teeny tiny!
You can find a copy of the Stacked Shells Purse for just $3.50 in any of my online shops!
Recently, HodgePodge Crochet hosted its first ever Shrug Showdown! Six designers stepped forward to take on the challenge of re-imagining a knit shrug design into a crochet version and what was produced was nothing short of amazing.
I’m proud to announce WL Creations as the overall WINNER of the first ever HodgePodge Shrug Showdown contest!!! (Which was held over in the HodgePodge Crochet fb Community in case you were wondering.)
Her winning design was HANDS DOWN the crowd favorite and she pretty much blew away the competition with her jaw-droppingly beautiful shrug. I love everything about this one!!
If you’d like to snag a copy of her Victoriana Shrug, so you can be dressed in your best for any future New Years Eve parties!!, head on over to her Ravelry today and you can be wrapped in gorgeous by the end of the week!
Winner of the Best Use of Crochet Stitches category went to ShopKimberlie! Her gorgeous design was further highlighted by her delicious yarn choice making her shrug the hands-down favorite!
