What to crochet with our new British Masham base.

Oh my goodness when i planned to write this post the world was all "normal" and we were out running about outside and touching things! Now we are all inside, permitted one exercise outside a day and generally tidying every cupboard we can find! So all you crocheters out there , lets get some inspiration for that stunning British Masham i have in stock.

My favourite thing when looking for crochet patterns is finding a wee gem in amongst all the granny squares (no hate i love a granny square) Look at this jumper, i cant even figure it out, those smooshy pleats down the front, oh my god, im for sure putting this on the list, and when the mill opens again i will for sure be having one in gold.

 I am a cardigan girl, well mostly hoodies, however cardis are a strong second and i really love the style of this one, like a grampa style cardi with POCKETS HOLY SHEET POCKETS, another one on the to make list for sure. For wearability id probably do this in Static, but Eldritch is calling out to me, i mean you cant have too many purple cardigans right?

 AH my dudes the crochet project. Just go look at all their projects, i cant find one that i dont love. I often feel crochet gets left behind in comparison to all the knitting patterns out there, and these dudes are the first in the UK to my knowledge that has really been pushing it. The stitch pattern, its a cardi again. I think id deffo keep with a grey for this dude, but id love to see it in PRTH i really feel the stitch definition and the colours would be really good friends.

Drucilla Shawl by Fay Dashper-Hughes

 Lets start off with the nae of this shawl. Drucilla, im not sure if the designer is a fan of Buffy the Vampire slayer, but im going to pretend that that is the reason this shawl has that name. It just looks like a proper smushy shawl, fantastic size and would really show off the sheepyness of the yarn, which in turn would be EXCELLENT for stalking around graveyards at night! I clearly need a red in this yarn, but until i get around to it i think Lana obscura would look beaching.

 Another crochet project baby. I have made one of these shawls and it is one of my top 3. Its such a perfect size, so cosy under a jacket and really fun to make. 10/10 would make again and thing you should too. I honestly think any two colours from the range would work well in this. GO WILD

There was just something about the stitches in this hat that made me want to include it. I clearly need to dye up some pewter in the Masham as i think the grey in this hat is just perfect.

My heart skipped a beat when it saw this hat, i dont even understand how these stitches are done. Im always so happy when people are clever with crochet and this baby is one of those patterns. GIVE ME FIVE! Would it be a weird combo to do it in Light Dancer and Gold??
