Another pattern from Stitch ‘N Bitch Crochet: The Happy Hooker by Debbie Stoller, this time from Laura Killoran


Wanda’s Granny’s No Square Bag

This pattern, designed by Diana Rupp, is from the very fabulous book Stitch ‘N Bitch Crochet: The Happy Hooker by Debbie Stoller. I used a few different yarns for this project: the blues and purple are Vickie Howell Sheep(ish) and the gray, black, and multi are from balls I had sitting around, in true Granny style. I loved Ravelry user Zratha’s design in which she used handles from another bag and I did the same, lifting not only the strap but also the lining from a bag I had acquired at a great price from a thrift store a few years ago that I rarely used.

Mon Cherie Shawl

I designed this shawl for my girl Cherie using SWTC Pure, which is so soft and drapes beautifully. I made the shawl long and narrow, so that it not only looks great when worn around your shoulders, but still covers your back when pulled up around your head. The double arch stitch that dominates the pattern ensures the shawl has texture and depth while allowing the airiness of the stitch to shine through. I considered adding tassels or fringe for about a week before deciding to leave it alone; I love how the geometric ends of each row fall when the shawl is worn. The pattern is for sale on Ravelry.
