Crochet with Handspun: Merino Cowl

Working with handspun yarn you're not crazy about can surprise you. When I finally used this yarn with a fun free cowl pattern, I found its true potential.

This winter, while looking for a quick and simple project to knock out in between working on larger garments, I found myself yearning for something thick and soft to counter all of the thin, hard lace I’d been working. My handspun yarn just felt so luscious. I’m glad … read more
