I have always loved the colors of Malabrigo yarns and thus am always in search of a stitch to best show off the colorways. There are many knit stitches that do the job well, but what about crochet? This cloche was designed to show the beauty of crochet through a gorgeous yarn. It is because of this that I suggest a variegated or self striping yarn, though solid colors look lovely as well.
~Instructions for wool and cotton included
~Detailed photos to explain the star stitch

My name is Tasha and I am the "K1" part of our shop. I am 29, married, a new mom, and I love to knit and crochet. I am also the proud mommy of a parrotlet, a few finches, and an ornery kitty. Some of my other activities include camping, shopping, reading, all things internet, video games, cooking, and hanging out with my awesome friends.
My mom is Nancy and she is the "Sew Too" part of our shop. While she won't let me put her age... let's just say she is on her way to seasoned. ;) She loves to keep the neighbors up with her sewing machine. Some of her other activities include holding her new granddaughter, shopping, eating out, walking, watching prime time tv, and enjoying the outdoors.
