Crochet Cowl by Max
Max has been crocheting with West Yorkshire Spinners 4 ply yarn that shows off a great alternative use for what is normally considered a sock yarn, doesn’t it look beautiful?
Max says, “this cowl is Inspired by Elly Doyle’s Rosita Cowl in ripple stitch with which I wanted to create a light and airy cowl with plenty of drape, colour contrast and stitch definition.
I am pleased the 4ply yarn I chose, crochet up beautifully, WYS Zandra Rhodes “Rainbow” and Signature 4 ply “Liquorice”, the black shade”
We have both of these shades in stock on The Wool Boat priced at £7.50 per 100 gram ball.
“Dinosaur hoodie by Sarita.
I thought you might like the attached pictures of a Dinosaur hoodie that I’ve knitted using grey James C. Brett double knitting with Merino yarn that I bought for the blanket I knitted last year. I have paired it with a Sirdar Snuggly Crofter yarn that I also had in my stash, and I have used this for the spikes. Again, this James C. Brett yarn was an absolute pleasure to knit with; it knits up so beautifully and is so soft and nice to work with.
Sarita has her own Etsy shop, Sazzy knits here.

Black and white kitty blanket by Andrea
“Knitted from James Brett Top value acrylic in black and white shades. The pattern is from a vintage baby blanket from the 60s that belonged to my Leigh Grandma. She passed all her needles and patterns on to me when her eyesight started to fail and hands got too arthritic. Had it in my pattern collection for about 40 years? “
Knitted by Andrea as a Christmas present for one of her daughter’s cats, so couldn’t show it to you before now.
