Hello Stitches, I have a confession. I was given the opportunity to publish a pattern with Crochet Foundry Magazine and MaryMaxim Yarns! The Entwined in Winter Tunic is my first I have been dying to share this new design with my beloved Stitches. This little tunic has been under wraps for about five whole months! Now, the time to give you all an early X-Mas gift 🎁.
EASY TO CROCHET, EASY TO STYLE
Forget hot girl summer. It's all about cozy girl winter! A time for looking cute WHILE being comfortable. Snuggling on the couch with a good book and sumptuous hot cocoa. And the Entwined in Winter Tunic has arrived just in time to swathe you maximum chic coziness.
Not only is this design extremely crochet beginner friendly, but also looks great on many different body types because the tunic is as easy to crochet as she is to customize. You can easily make the tunic longer, shorter, or wider. See how great the Entwined in Winter Tunic looks the beautiful array of bodies in the gallery below 👇.
WHAT WAS USED TO MAKE THE ENTWINED IN WINTER TUNIC
I've had the distinct pleasure to work with Furls Crochet and Premier Yarns for the first time. That also means that I used my first furls crochet hook! Upon unboxing my first furls hook I was astounded by how beautiful she was. I chose their I 5.5 mm hook from the Andromeda Streamline Galaxy collection. The sparkle and swirls are just sooo preeetty; with every twist I make while work with it I spot something new.
THE FURLS HOOK
Speaking of working with the Furls hook... As I said it was my first experience working with a hook with this unique ergonomic shape. And as with anything new, there is a learning curve. I found that the Furls hooks are better suited for a knife hold when crocheting rather than my more commonly used pencil hold as the hook is very bottom heavy. But once you figure out your groove with this amazing hook you will cruise through your stitches with a blissful comfort.
THE MARY MAXIM YARN
I absolutely adored working with MaryMaxim's Yarns. I had the pleasure to work with the Woodlands yarn which is made up of 90% Acrylic and 10% Alpaca. This blend creates a soft and divinely warm fiber and even cozier fabric. The Woodlands yarn is also 200 yards or 183 meters in length and weighs 3.5 ounces or 100 grams.
When the Woodlands yarn is worked up the resulting fabric is light weight and has plenty of drape! And though the color I used was in Beige Heather their were interesting subtle pops of orange through out the yarn.
WHERE TO FIND THIS BEGINNER FRIENDLY CROCHET PATTERN
Alright, so I've gassed you up enough with all the hype about the pattern and I'm sure your wondering where you can get your copy. Well, you can find the Entwined in Winter Tunic in the December 2022 issue of the Crochet Foundry Magazine.
That's right boys and girls! I have published my first crochet pattern in magazine! This has been a goal in my pattern writing career for a long time and I'm excited to share this size inclusive (XS-5XL) crochet pattern with you all. I hope you get the opportunity to make the Entwined in Winter Tunic and enjoy her in your Cozy Girl Winter.
