We love to see what independent designers can do with our yarns. I was recently trolling Ravelry looking for some gems, and came across some beautiful independent crochet designs. Enjoy!
Kristen TenDyke is a huge proponent of crochet, with quite a few patterns under her belt. Her Flame Scallop Cardi is soft and vibrant in Fresco.
Wendy Lewis designed the Jane Austen shawl (Rav link) in Silky Alpaca Lace. I can certainly relate to her story about finding your favorite craft and letting it take over your life.
Monica Brown's Cropped Cardigan is adorable and a free download in Premiere!
I adore Laura Nelkin's designs. I love that this fun, flirty summer top has a sewing component. It should be easy to find a companion fabric for one of the 26 colors of Wool Bam Boo.
Look at the beautiful edging on Lisa Gonzalez's Cut Away Cardi. Premiere is the star in this free pattern!
I love a dolman sleeve, especially when there's openwork involved. Robyn Chachula's Zany pullover (Rav link) has both those things in Wool Bam Boo!
