"Come away with me and take a stroll by the sea and listen to the song of the ocean on the docks. Let’s saunter in the sunlight and feel the summer slowly arrive, and take a walk in the deep woods of the island. Let’s exhale and take some time to simply be, to relax and create. Let’s travel in the mind to the Swedish archipelago and all the beauty it has to show.
The Island Stroll CAL is designed by Tess (@sistersinstitch) and brings you floral squares that we slowly turn into beautiful octagons and then finally join together. This Crochet A Long consists of one main pattern yet brings you two options of makes depending on which yarn you choose to work with.
Either you go for the luxuriously luscious blanket in our Super Must-Have, or for the stunningly textured pillow in the Must-Have yarn. No matter which one you end up choosing we will spend eleven wonderful weeks together embracing the mindfulness that is overlay crochet.
Skill level: Intermediate ***
From May 6th, a free blog post will go online every Friday with the pattern (in US terms). In addition, Tess has made a lot of video material and she will take you step by step when making this beautiful pattern.
