Happy Monday! That's the name of Aoibhe NÃ SuilleabhÃ¡in's newest design, on display in the shop right now. It's a lovely thing, crocheted top down with raglan shaping, and the pattern is free! Like all top down garments, you can try it on easily as you go, ensuring an absolutely perfect fit. What's more, the stitch pattern is delightfully simple - it's just doubles and trebles throughout. It's fastened with two buttons - Aoibhe found these sweet mother-of-pearl ones in A Rubanesque, our neighbours downstairs in the Powerscourt Centre. Happy Monday is made with a mix of Noro Kureyon Sock and Debbie Bliss Rialto 4-ply. There are so many gorgeous combinations to choose from, but here's a couple that caught our eye: This is an ideal project for you if you've mastered basic crochet skills and want to move on to making larger items. We've even got a two-part Raglan Crochet class on the 2nd and 9th of June taught by Aoibhe herself. You can reserve a place by calling us or by email. And whatever day it is, have a happy one!
