New Patterns Released for Cascade

on November 30, 2016

It has been a while, but I’m happy to say that two new patterns that I designed for Cascade Yarns have been released, and I would like to share them with you here.

The first is the Bloomfield Shawl.

The Bloomfield Shawl is a half circle shawl which alternates solid rows of double crochet stitches with increasing bands of lace stitches to create an airy, swingy shawl. The pattern uses Heritage Wave by Cascade Yarns, a fingering weight yarn with color transitions. The yarn does all the colorwork and you just have 4 ends to weave in.

 

The second pattern that was released is the Easy Cable Lace Stole.

The Easy Cable Lace Stole is a quick project where the crochet stitch pattern give you lots of bang for your buck! The post stitch cross over gives a great texture to the fabric you create, and the nature of the stitch allows for lots of different blocking options, from a tighter stitch to really open and lacy. The project in the picture used a medium block – wanted some openness but didn’t want to lose the texture of the post stitch. You can see the light coming through on the second picture, so you can see how open it is. The yarn used is Longwood Sport by Cascade Yarns, a sport weight yarn with lots of spring. I really liked using this yarn and will be using more of it in the future.

So there you have it – this brings the total number of patterns I have had published up to 30! Thanks for celebrating with me! I can’t wait to see what you crochet!

    Good evening
    My name is Natalie. I am crocheting your Bloomfield shawl pattern. I am having trouble with row 5 through 7 and row 40. If there a stitch diagram and revised pattern that included the stitch counts after each Row? I reached out to Cascade customer service. They acted like they didn’t know what I was talking about in regards to the pattern and told me to seek out help at my local yarn store (Joanns, Micheals, and Hobby Lobby. It’s a beautiful pattern and I would like to finish it.

      Natalie, could you give me a little more information regarding the trouble you are having with the pattern? I don’t have a stitch diagram, but may be able to draw a quick one if that will help. The more specific you are with your questions, the easier I will be able to answer them. Thanks!
