Earlier this year, the Berroco design team got hooked on crochet garments.

For the first time, Amy Christoffers and I both crocheted a garment. We both have known how to crochet for a while, but had never put down the knitting needles long enough to concentrate on a crochet garment. We both fell in love with the Water Clover top from the spring 2019 issue of PomPom Quarterly, and dragged Alison and Donna with us. I crocheted mine in Berroco Mantra™, as did Alison, while Amy C used LANGYARNS Canapa and Donna used a silk yarn from her stash.

Have you done much crochet? I know many of us can be a bit hesitant to try something new, but getting the basics of crochet can really help your knitting (and vice versa). I'm noticing that I'm starting to understand different ways that the fabric is constructed and how different finishing techniques can work in different ways, plus it's nice to give my hands a little something different to do! If you're already a crocheter or willing to give it a try, we've got some recent crochet patterns for your consideration! We've got some videos to help you get started.
This week's free pattern is perfect for anyone looking to learn how to crochet. Anemone is a simple cowl crocheted with three balls of Berroco Millefiori®. Simple double-crochet clusters form tiny fans that build up to a long loopy cowl, showing off the beautiful colors in Berroco Millefiori.

Happy crafting,
