Welcome Crocheters!

Unplanned Peacock is proud to have many excellent crocheters using our yarn!  In this blog post, a picture is worth a thousand words, so I'm going to share with you some of the skilled projects our customers have shared with us over the years.  People have crocheted with Unplanned Peacock yarn in all weights from lace to super bulky.

First off, an out of the box project, a Short Scarf made with our clay buttons and our thick and thin Carnival Bulky yarn.  This project was crocheted by Kelley Gillespie.  

Our next featured project is a lovely light crocheted cowl, Vetheuil, designed and created by Jackie Murton.  This project shows off the amazing color richness of our Kinky Sock.

Doesn't this hat look cozy?  It would be perfect for next winter.  This is another of Jackie's patterns - A Mid Winter's Hat.  It is perfect for your favorite guy made out of our Superwash Merino Worsted.

Rohn Strong is a well known crochet designer who has designed several patterns with our yarn.  Here are two of my favorites:

The Jo Dee Hat is made of our bouncy and smooth Superwash Merino DK.

Rohn's Wynonna Mitts are an updated classic, using a soft color scheme, again in our Superwash Merino DK.

An amazing crafter who specializes in jewelry and fiber arts design, Michelle Stead is designing crochet patterns with her own unique style.  Her latest is Dappled Sea Hooked.  This delicate and airy piece only takes one skein of our decadent alpaca, silk, and cashmere Whisper Lite

Have you crocheted anything with our yarn?  We'd love to see pics!  Maybe you'll get luck and win the free skein of yarn we give away every month to people who sign up for our newsletter, or the skein of yarn that's a prize on the blog tour!  To enter, comment on this post and let me know you were here!  Drawing will be on March 5.
