Dominique

Thanks to one of our customers ( Dominique), this pattern is so simple to make you can take it anywhere and it’ll almost crochet itself. We made ours in Seawool by Fleece Artist, a soft, drapey merinos and seacell mix. Seacell is made from seaweed and like bambou it has a slight sheen and washes very well. We sell in a wide range of colours at Kaleidoscope. This pattern is for sale in our E-shop in EN/FR price 3 euros.
