Exciting News — A Crochet Along Together (CAT)

Hello, everybody!

If you are reading this then you are part of the happy knitting community.  Have you ever considered crochet?  If you are an avid knitter, well, has learning to crochet ever crossed your mind?

This is a wonderful opportunity to add to your skill set.  Graywood Designs is participating in something called a Crochet Along Together (CAT). Thanks to Skacel and Amanda Mannas from MandoBug this fun and interactive CAT will feature a single project that introduces specific crochet techniques and will be backed up with YouTube videos.

The CAT will run for four weeks beginning on Thursday, March 2nd.  The instructions for the project will be posted on Ravelry. A link to those instructions can be found on the Skacel CAT page.

Now, here is where we come in. Graywood Designs is pleased to offer the very yarn that will be used in this CAT. The yarn is Simplicity, the same yarn that we used in the football KAL in 2015.

Simplicity by Hikoo is soft yet durable Merino Superwash that is perfect for this project.  The project, a cowl, is called “Easy as 1-2-3 Cowl,” and would be a great addition to your wardrobe.  The beautiful pastel colors of spring would be perfect for this Cowl. Maybe you are tired of winter darks and ready to to to the closet and pull out that favorite white sweater or blazer. This cowl will top off your wardrobe and get you thinking “spring at last!” in no time.
