An ode to the granny square, Joanne Scrace's gorgeous cover scarf is such a beautiful modern twist on the classic (I know Joanne generally isn't a big fan of!), making it classy and sophisticated and taking it a world away from it's usual image.
I also have a pattern in this months pages, my Leonie Cardigan. I'm particualry fond of this design, it's made in Rowan Pure Wool 4ply and it so light and soft to wear. Crocheted as a bit rectangle, the front can be left to hang open, or fastened with a shawl pin in a number or ways. The stitch pattern I used is the classic Catherine Wheel Stitch.
As the lovely Claire, is so swift at returning samples I already have it back in my possession and I know it's going to be the perfect accompaniment to autumn.
