NEW Crochet Pattern: Floral Peony Neck Warmer scarf

Etsy store: www.valeriebaberdesigns.etsy.com or Ravelry www.ravelry.com/designers/valerie-baber 

The Floral Peony Neck Warmer Scarf is designed just for you to warm your day with elegance and style. Designed with a DK weight yarn on the base of the scarf and a sock or fingerling weight yarn on the flowers and leaves. The Floral Peony Neck Warmer Scarf warms your day with memories of summer walks in the garden surrounded by beautiful flowers. Perfect in any colour combination including neutrals, bright and bold or soft pastels. Make it all in one colour or various colours as shown in the photos. Yarn will be available soon for this design.

Scarf base – I used 1 skein DK 256 yards / 234 m per of DK weight by Sweetgeorgia Yarns. You can use most DK weight yarns for this design.

Flowers and Leaves (solid coloured scarf) – I used approximately 105 yards / 96 m sock weight or fingerling weight mini skein or other yarn of the same weight for the flowers and leaves. You can use most sock or fingerling weight yarns. If you are making the version with coloured flowers and leaves you will need enough yarn for the accents.

Stained Glass Arm Warmers

The new Stained Glass Arm warmers are perfect to keep your hands warm and cozy this season. Available at http://www.valeriebaberdesigns.etsy.com and http://www.valeriebaberdesign.com

Stained Glass series is a collection I have been working on this year in relation to my Architectural Design Project.  The Stained Glass panel beside the traditional style was also made by myself years ago. I loved making the Stained Glass then and always want to design some with yarn.

The Gothic Cathedrals of the past adorn many amazing Stained Glass windows that add colour to the stone walls.  I have designed two versions so far with a beige stone coloured base and a more contemporary feel on one style and a traditional essence with an ivory base and brighter Stained Glass on this style.  The beige contemporary version has rod iron that surrounds the glass window gently sewn in beside the stained glass panels in the center in a subtle manner.  The ivory traditional style has a bold colour way with the rod iron place one either side of the window panel in a stronger essence to go with the more bold traditional design.

There will be more colours coming soon.

They are also available soon at the Alberta Craft Council in both Edmonton and Calgary, see their website for addresses.  I have many one of a kind designs including scarves, and hand warmers at these two locations.
