The Crochet Express National Crochet Month Blog Tour


Welcome to Crochetville’s fourth annual National Crochet Month (NatCroMo) blog tour, taking place each day of March 2016. Join us as we take a virtual tour on our passenger steam train, The Crochet Express, visiting crochet designers, crochet-friendly local yarn stores, and yarn companies, and offer some fun giveaways.

Want to Chat about the Tour?

Part of the fun of taking a passenger steam train trip is talking with your fellow passengers. This year, we’re providing two locations where our passengers can get to know each other. We’d love to hear about your favorite things you’ve discovered on the tour and see photos of your current crochet projects. You’re invited to join us daily for virtual cocktails/appetizers and dinner. (We’ll be sharing links to some fabulous recipes!)

Heidi Ehlers

Crochetville is very proud to have designer Heidi Ehlers with us today as one of the featured designers on our 2016 Designer Blog Tour in honor of National Crochet Month (NatCroMo).

About Heidi:

My name is Heidi and I live in Hamburg, Germany. I have always loved knitting, crocheting, crafting, reading, music, dancing, boardgames and traveling. I enjoy creating my own designs and always try to keep them original.

Tell us about your favorite travel destination.

My favorite travel destination is Scotland.

Tell us about a “dream” travel location that you’d like to visit one day.

One day I like to visit Canada.

Do you visit yarn stores when traveling? If so, tell us about one of your favorite finds.

I visit all yarn stores I find on my way. I have no favorite, because all stores are very different and interesting, especially the ones in foreign countries.

Packing: Tell us about any crochet clothing or accessories you pack when traveling. Do you have any really cool packing tips to share?

When traveling some crocheted shawls are in my case.

Tell us about any crochet projects you take with you when traveling: How many projects do you take? How do you decide which ones to take?

Two or three projects in progress are traveling with me. And for new ideas a new ball of yarn.

A Few of Heidi’s Designs:

Magic Flow Shawl | Heidi Ehlers

This triangle lace shawl is suitable for any laceweight or fingering weight yarn. The easy-to-memorize wave pattern looks equally pleasing in a solid color or in differently colored stripes. The size is variable. The pattern is charted with a legend. No stitch by stitch instructions.


Kentia Shawl | Heidi Ehlers

Kentia Shawl, 3.95 €

This half circle shawls is crocheted from top down. The design was inspired by the leaves of a Kentia Palm. The 7 palm fronds produce a lovely edging and make the shawl a little bit larger than a half circle. Finished size and yarn choice are variable.

From this pattern you can crochet either a scarf, a stole or a large rectangular or square shawl. Finished size and yarn choice are variable.
