Take Two Collection One – Crochet by Lynne Rowe and Fay Dashper-Hughes
A collection of eight crochet patterns, creating sixteen designs from two designers (Fay Dashper-Hughes and Lynne Rowe). Lynne and Fay each designed four projects, using yarn that was spun in the north of England.
They then swapped patterns and crocheted them again using stash yarn. The take two versions use different yarn weights, leave elements out or add different elements.
You are encouraged to do the same. Choose a design, look to your stash and make the patterns your own, or make one of the versions from the book.
Lynne has designed a cushion (Chrysanth), blanket (Phasian), mittens (Baltum) and a cowl (Galicia).
Fay has designed a bag (Skogafoss), shallow shawl (Colosseum), short cowl (Auchincruive) and a notions pouch/purse (Paraphernalia).
The book is A5 sized and gives additional details such as the number of hours the project should take and exactly how much yarn was used (grams and meters). The majority of the patterns are deemed to be easy to make, and great stash busters.
The book uses our very own Baa Baa Brew!
