My new ETSY shop

OK… so I finally did it… I bit the bullet & opened my Etsy shop this week. It’s only small but I hope to add to it often.
Any comments, opinions & critiques are welcomed

Chocolate Box- Cushion Cover


   

 

3 step Summer Shrug

This little number is the easiest garment you’ll ever make – it is worked by size not number of stitches & as with all my recent patterns I like to think that even the most basic beginner will be able to have a go & make something other than a crochet square

The pattern is in both UK & US terminology with stitch drawings & diagrams & because it’s such an easy pattern to read, it will help the beginner gain confidence reading & understanding other patterns – for the more experienced it’s a quick garment to knock over in a few hours
3 Step Summer Shrug  is for sale on Ravelry

$5.00 USD 

I just know you’ll love this pattern & use it over & over again… Renate
