Asymmetric Granny Cowl. Free Crochet Pattern and Tutorial.

It has taken an age but I finally found time to record a new crochet tutorial! Hurray! Thank you for being so patient with me. Video tutorials take a lot of time to put together so it’s very easy to drop it lower on the list when something else pops up. Please click on the picture above to go to the tutorial or HERE to my YouTube channel. Don’t forget my Free Patterns page too, that’s HERE.

If you would like to support my crochet adventures, which would surely melt my ice cold heart, please do so over on Patreon. Fanx!!! xxx

Materials & Notes:

  • One colour: 2x 100g (135m) balls of chunky yarn. I used Stylecraft Alpaca Tweed
  • Stripey version: 3x 100g (135m) balls of chunky yarn
  • 8mm hook
  • Written in UK terms (converting is dead easy, a UK tr is a US dc, that’s it!)
  • 3ch counts as a stitch (st/s)
  • I have a loose tension, go up a hook size if you don’t!
  • Scroll down for a “chart” showing colour changes and a it more info.

Zeens & Roger Crochet Podcast. Episode 53. Ice Queen

It has been such chaos this week but I really wanted to stop by to say hello.  It’s a shorty and I feel like a stuck record but I hope you enjoy it nevertheless. Click on the image above to go directly to the episode or to my YouTube channel HERE. Cheers. x

Not many links this time…

If you would like to support me via Patreon (HERE) then I will love you forever. No tiers or no rewards at the moment because I don’t want to break promises I can’t keep. After I get the current commissions out of the way I can focus more on other patterns and YouTube tutorials for you.

Off I go the the Crochet Sanctuary next week. I plan on reporting back so watch this space!

I’m slowly making progress on Hannah’s Frost shawl. I love it so much. Wish I hadn’t made mistakes on it but I love it regardless.

And I talk a bit about The Fibre Co.  In a few months I’ll be able to show you what I make!

Edinburgh Yarn Festival 2019

Hallooo, I’ve done a quick video rundown of this year’s Edinburgh Yarn Festival. I’ve not done one before and thought it’d be a good idea. Go HERE to watch on YouTube!!

Watching it back I can see how much I’ve missed out (there was so much I wanted to say!!) but hopefully what I do talk about is something you find interesting. In a bid to get it out so that EYF is still fresh in my mind, I’ve just talked at you for half an hour as stuff falls out my mouth. Now I’m off to have a power nap because I still haven’t recovered from my weekend in Scotland.

See below for the few photos I took whilst there, some of the yarn I bought and what I plucked up the courage to wear…
