Featured Designer: Rachy Newin - Crochet Shawls and Wraps

Starting off the new Featured Designer of the Month series with my friend and fabulous fellow crochet designer: Rachy Newin!

 

Rachy’s patterns are intended to provide crocheters with the opportunity to make something truly beautiful, with high end yarns that are a joy to work with. They highlight the beauty of natural fibers and hand dyed yarns, and emphasize the artistry that can be created with crochet. The patterns are fun to work up and gorgeous to wear, and are clearly a design of today’s era.  Her patterns also contain as much flexibility and customizability as possible so that you can create something that suits you perfectly.

 

 


First up is Lake Shore Shawl feature’s two colors of yarn in a wing shape.  To help keep it in place on a windy day wear it with a vintage bronze charmed pin like this tree of life.

 Dream of Diamonds Wrap  is a generous rectangle worked in 3 colors.  Wear it with the April Diamond Shawl Pin for an elegant finishing touch.

Gennie Shawl is a great beginner pattern with an easy 2 row repeat. One of the Dragonfly Shawl Pins would be a stunning match in any color.

This next design looks super fun to hook up. Spiral Out features 3 colors of yarn with a unique construction that finishes in a boomerang shape.  While there is no shawl pin in these photos it’s easy to imagine styling this shawl a variety of ways. The October Opal Shawl Pin would look gorgeous and different depending on which color(s) of yarn it was over.
