Child’s Turtle Hat is adorable! It’s available on Ravelry, Etsy, and PatternFish.
Today’s Stop 2: Visit Renee’ Rodgers
If you don’t already know Renee’ Rodgers, you should march right on over to Ravelry and check out her gorgeous collection of crochet shawls! Last year, Renee’ self-published one shawl every month. You can buy them all together as an e-book, 12 Shawls in 2012, or individually. Renee’ is currently the Mentor Coordinator for the Crochet Guild of America. I am so glad to know Renee’ personally; I first met her at the Chain Link 2010 in Manchester, NH, where she and Amy Shelton first became perennial crochet conference roommates!
Summer Storm is the most popular shawl from 12 Shawls in 2012. It is being modeled by the lovely Amy Shelton!
It’s hard for me to pick a favorite of the twelve, but I really love Frankly Scarlet.
