Yarn Giveaway: Win 3 Skeins of Yarn

– This give away has closed – 
Congratulations to the lucky winner: Debbie R.! Thank you to everyone who participated!

It’s been a few months since my last giveaway, so I felt like it was about time to do another! This time around I am giving away 3 skeins of Loops & Threads Velveteen yarn. The extra special thing about this yarn is that it is no longer in production. I was so sad to hear last year that they wouldn’t be making it anymore, as it has such a unique texture and beautiful shimmer. It has a bit of the elasticity of a t-shirt or Bernat Maker yarn, but with a delicate satin-like fabric edging that gives it an elegant sheen. It feels very fancy! Continue reading Yarn Giveaway: Win 3 Skeins of Yarn

Once the band is complete, a simple half-double crochet in the round makes a quick finish of the lower part of the cuff. This pattern can be done with 2 colors to create some fun contrast, or in one color for just some subtle texture. Continue reading Crochet Diamond Boot Cuff Pattern
