Happy New Year! Now that the holidays are over and you have finished crocheting all those wonderful projects for gifts, it’s time to treat yourself! You are invited to join us for our first Crochet-Along of the new year.
We chose the Sequin-tial Moebius by designer, Carrie Carpenter for our CAL because of its simplicity to stitch with spectacular results! Featured in the February 2015 issue of Crochet World magazine, the original was crocheted in Classic Sequins Lite from Universal Yarn which features gorgeous color changes sprinkled with sequins making this yarn a knock-out choice.
The CAL will begin on Januaray 28 which will give you enough time to purchase your yarn and take advantage of the upcoming sale celebrating Annie’s yarn website relaunch. Annie’s Yarn Shop will offer 20% off all yarn January 13-19. We’ll include the link for the sale next week, so make sure to visit the blog for your savings!
In the meantime, take a look at our suggestions from the Annie’s website for your Sequin-tial Moebius. We’ve selected four different yarns to fit any budget:
Premier Yarns Deborah Norville Hipster You’ll need 5 skeins of this soft, touchable bamboo-blend yarn. The slinky drape of this ribbon yarn with its beautiful color striations will make a show-stopping scarf at a budget price!
Universal Yarn Bamboo Pop is another reasonably priced yarn that will give awesome results. This cotton/bamboo blend would be a perfect choice for a warmer-weather scarf. The smooth texture and subtle sheen allow the color variations and your beautiful crochet stitches to shine. You’ll need 3 balls to crochet up to the largest size.
Crystal Palace Danube For colder climates, this yarn is the perfect option. Silky rayon and nylon fibers spun with soft wool add sheen and warmth to this yarn with it’s gentle color variations. Purchase 5 skeins to cover all sizes of this medium-priced yarn.
Noro Kibou would make a luxurious scarf for those ready to splurge a little! Noro yarns are known for their unique color blends that produce artistic results. You’ll need 3 skeins of this scrumptious cotton, wool, silk blend yarn.
Remember all yarns will be 20% off January 13-19. So have fun choosing your yarn for the Sequin-tial Moebius. Then crochet along with us January 28 – February 11!
