February 2021

It’s a new month already! Winter is somewhat flying by and although I love to crochet winter items I am not sad about seeing this season go by quickly - especially since most of us are still being sequestered indoors. That’s why this year’s Beach themed series is so perfect. No matter what time of year it is, we can still have something to work on for warmer days.

Here’s what we’re working on this month in our Life’s a Beach Crochet series.

For February’s project, I thought that working on a super summery top would get us through the mental bog that can be winter. One of my beach visits this past Summer took me down to Cedar Bay Beach on the northern shores of Lake Erie, Ontario. This is where I showed off my BEACH VIBES TANK TOP. It was a glorious day and I was so thankful it was open. This was still in the time when many beaches were closed to the public due to the pandemic but we managed to find this quiet little gem that allowed visitors. The trick to getting a good spot is go EARLY! We arrived at 8am and it was gloriously peaceful. Perfect time to get a few pics on location in my latest summer crochet creation.

I loved working with Loops & Threads Cotton Colors Stripes Yarn. 100% cotton and soft!

Hot Buns

The messy bun hat is ever popular among crocheters and knitters and pretty much everyone. It’s still pretty trendy and so handy!

I used the bobble stitch to give this one loads of texture. It looks intricate but if you are comfortable with your basic double crochet and single crochet you’ll be creating quite a few of these I’m sure!

Infinity and beyond

The infinity scarf is another popular winter accessory but we added a bit of a “twist” to this project by exploring the Mobius Twist technique.

Did you know that the mobius strip is an intricate mathematical shape/formation? In mathematics, a Mobius strip or loop, is a surface with only one side and only one boundary curve. This discovery is attributed to the German mathematicians Johann Benedict Listing and August Ferdinand Möbiusin 1858. (source:wikipedia)

It makes for a fabulous scarf design! Worked in a super chunky yarn, this makes for a very cozy accent to any winter ensemble.
