Ravelry Inspirations

 

Free Range Kimono –  FREE Crochet Pattern

Use a worsted weight yarn like Encore to make this crocheted jacket for fall or those chilly summer evenings (we could use one of those about now).  

________________________________

Jesika

Sized from Newborn to 4T– this fingering weight dress will later become a tunic top.  Ella Rae Lace Merino or Madelinetosh Twist Light have many great colorways that would look great in this design.

________________________________

Market Tote Bag –  FREE

Fantasy Naturale will work so well in this design and we carry this great cotton in a ton of colors!

Now & Forever Shawl

I love this design.  It reminds me of a shawl Eileen knit up several years ago.  Knit it in Tosh Dk and use either the written & charted instructions.  Both are included.

________________________________

Night Sky

A pretty summery top for a yarn like Hempathy, or more fall-like in a wooly fiber like Nuna.
