Fascinating Crochet

This afternoon was spent at Spun Fibre Arts yarn shop in Burlington, Ontario with a great group of crochet enthusiasts. We were attending a workshop offered by Danielle Kassner on Jacquard Crochet. Danielle is a crocheter extraordinaire who lives in Barcelona, Spain, but travels home to Canada during the holidays. Samples of Danielle's work can be seen on her blog at Her designs can also be seen on Ravelry where her user name is laracroft.
The class was focused on creating a thrummed jacquard crochet cowl in two colours. It was challenging to learn how to crochet in two colours in the round while carrying the unspun five-ply roving along the inside of the cowl, but we all managed it. Here we all are. Danielle is seated in the centre. I'll be posting pictures of the cowl as it progresses.

  1. I had a great time as well! Thanks to the sudden flurry of white stuff that has decided to stick around, I am madly trying to finish mine. Thanks again for the hook ;-)
