Fur Yarn: Ring Shawl – Intermediate

Lishman, Paula - Crochet Ring Shawl Collage_700x887These tube shawls offers lots of versatility to the wearer. One is knit, with rows of fur tucked to the fur row below, separated by rows of knit cotton. The cotton rows in between can be done in various colours of cotton slub yarn. This is a great piece for the younger set and can be worn many ways. The other best-seller crochet version is Paula’s favourite and the most versatile accessory ever! A quick crochet for an experienced ‘chainer’, but a project suitable to beginners too. Either way this is fur you can wear with your evening dress or watching TV in your PJs. The ultimate soft caress of beaver fur is at its most appreciated. Bring: 3.5 or 4mm, 24″ circular needles or 3.5 to 4mm hook. Kit $140 or $375

Fur Yarn: Scarf – Intermediate

Lishman, Paula - Scarf Slit_700x959The crocheted lacy scarf is worked with fur and cotton yarn as individual stitches, rather than ‘together’ and is approximately 6″ x 44″. Or create a knit version, 5″ x 34″ in stocking stitch, one stitch fur, one stitch cotton, then two rows of fur. Easy for American and European knitters, or those with 2 notches in your guide finger! This version incorporates a slit for a unique effect. Either way, your scarf will be comfortable, cozy and super stylish! Bring: 3.5 or 4mm, 24″ circular needles or 3.5 to 4mm hook. Kit $75 to $100 (in sheared beaver)
