The characteristics of the knit fabric make the alternating bands of color/stitches draw together in a squishy accordion pattern, or it could be blocked flat.

Marie at Underground Crafter has done her usual amazing job organizing 31 CGOA member designers for the month -… Continue reading Aslant Cowl – CGOA International Crochet Month Designer Spotlight
