Crochet: Cowl
Two-color stripes are a wonderful way to demonstrate the magical construction of a mobius cowl! Foundation ovals are clever for the set up row.

The fantastic Art Deco architecture of the Chrysler Building in New York City, especially the nested shapes at the top of the building, were my inspiration for this skirt.

Crochet: Vest
Bold graphic motifs aren’t just for shawls! Combine triangles and squares of the same motif stitch pattern to create a simple, bohemian vest topper. The size range is generous, and the style is flowy. The Sabrina is meant to be worn with plenty of ease. The tasseled ties pull it all together.
