Get set for The Crochet Project’s fourth mystery crochet-a -long!

Once again we kick off the making right after Christmas when many of you will have fulfilled your holiday obligations and be hoping for a little time to yourself.

This year’s shawl, might be the best yet: it’s bold, graphic and unisex adding a pop of warmth to your outfits for the rest of winter.
The design is inspired by the gently rolling hills outside the house where Joanne grew up, in Suffolk.

We’ll be hosting it in our Friends of The Crochet Project group on facebook and using the hashtag #HolbrookMCAL on instagram. Come and join the fun.
