I am so excited to share my upcoming pattern release with you all! Introducing Light Fruit:
This shawl was inspired by Sookie Stackhouse’s character in the True Blood TV series. It is light, ethereal, and only slightly lacy. The bobbles add surface interest on the edging, and the waves- created by increases and decreases on the edges- create visual appeal.
The pattern is currently being tested by a fantastic group of testers on Ravelry, and I will be offering the pattern for sale on Ravelry once the testers have finished up. I have more True Blood inspired designs in the work as well- in fact the next design was inspired by everyone’s favorite waitress herself- Arlene!
Don’t forget to join in the fun at the Must.Knit.Faster group on Ravelry, where you can stay up to date on pattern releases and other info!
Happy February all!!! It’s time for a Crochet-a-Long featuring my Fairy Princess Daisy Chain Crown pattern. You can download the pattern as a pdf HERE on Ravelry for free, or you can just use the directions below. Enjoy, and Im looking forward to seeing all of your projects on your own blogs!

Patons Classic Merino Wool in Leaf Green, Winter White, and a small amount of Yellow.
Size F Crochet Hook
Measure the head to determine how long to chain for the crown portion. Using the Green yarn, chain to desired length. Once you’ve reached the desired length, with chain still on the hook, insert the hook through the foundation of the chain, sc to secure the end of the chain to the beginning, and bind off. Weave in the ends.
Flowers: (Make 10)
*Chain 7, insert hook into foundation and sc. This new stitch will be the new foundation for the next petal. * Repeat from * to * until there are 5 petals. At the end of the 5th petal, insert hook into foundation of the first petal and secure. Weave in ends. To connect to flowers to the crown chain, place the flower where you would like it on the chain and using the tapestry needle and a small amount of yellow yarn, insert the needle into the back of the flower (through the chain) and tie a French knot for the center of the flower. Do this for each flower.
