This design was inspired by my love of geometry and as a tribute to so many of the beautiful crochet works of the 60s and 70s.KEep Reading
This design takes elements from filet crochet to create a representation of a keyboard and mouse. Inspired by the very keyboard I type on, the QWERTY Wrap is wide enough to be worn round your shoulders as a shawl at you desk but still slim enough to wear as a scarf on your commute!Keep Reading
This super comfy crochet sweater makes a great versatile addition to your wardrobe. Pair it with a light vest top in the summer or a long sleeved roll neck jersey top on cooler days.
It works up really quickly and would make a great gift!
Skill Level & Special Stitches
This pattern suits a beginner with some experience. It is ideal for beginners or improvers to try their first garment or is a lovely quick project for those with more experience. It’s loose fit is very forgiving!
The pattern does use the foundation double crochet stitch (it also offers a beginner modification if you’re not comfortable with the foundation stitches). You can find a tutorial for the foundation double crochet stitch on my youtube channel along with various other tutorials.

The pattern written for sizes S/M, M/L, 1X/2X and 3X with measurements detailed in the PDF.
I know. It’s a slightly odd named pattern but if you close-up on the pattern, the crochet cables look a little like towers and because of the flow of the stitch they lean a little to the side which is what inspired the name, that and the lovely slouchy fit.
This sweater is super comfy and loose fitting, perfect for those not-quite-summer days where you want to laze around. Equally you can team it with a long sleeved roll neck to add a cosy extra layer once you hit the definitely-not-summer days!
