NEW Lammas Day Shawl Crochet Along
To celebrate the launch of our newest yarn Anchor Organic Cotton we have collaborated with Heather from Keep Calm and Crochet On UK to host an exciting new CAL!
Lammas – or “Loaf Mass” - is a festival which traditionally celebrates the start of the harvest and is often marked by baking bread in the shape of corn, wheat or figures.
Inspired by this festival, Heather has created the perfect autumnal make; a beautiful textured shawl crocheted in 5 earthy, harvest themed shades of Anchor Organic Cotton. The finished shawl will be the perfect wrap for autumn evenings and we can’t help but think of those warm late-summer sunsets over wheat fields every time we see it!
If you’ve never joined a CAL (crochet-along) before now is the perfect time to try. CALs are a brilliant way to learn new skills and techniques as well as enjoying creating a beautiful, finished piece alongside other crafters.
You will be able to join in and crochet with Heather as she releases a new part of the pattern each week and shows you exactly how to tackle every stage of the design. The crochet along is supported by video tutorials, as well as step by step written instructions/patterns.
How to Join In
As Heather releases a new part of the pattern each week, she will show you exactly how to tackle every stage of the design. The crochet along is supported by video tutorials, as well as step by step written instructions and charts.
