BREEZE COLLECTION is a set of five crochet pieces that feature airy and lacy stitch patterns with a gentle drape and breezy mood worked in a warm â&#x20AC;&#x153;beach and seaâ&#x20AC;? color palette from Malabrigo yarns. SKILL LEVEL: Adventurous
SANDPIPER TOP It will fly off your hook! Sandpiper Top is a long-sleeved tunic which features relaxed shaping at the body and a bateau neckline with a higher back neck. The hem is shorter in the front and longer in the back and has an optional side slit. Modification tips are included in the pattern. It is surprisingly quick to make thanks to the easy-to-remember stitch pattern and worsted-weight yarn. The stitch pattern alternates between lacy and solid sections divided by a few rows of ribbing, all of which combine to create a soft drapey fabric.

OZONE COWL Have fun exploring the power of simple stitches! Ozone cowl is worked in the round from the top down. After completing the main part, a triangular corner is added with the help of short rows to create a fresh new shape. The working process is easy, yet interesting. Take pleasure on seeing the eyelets take shape and creating a richly-textured surface while using only the simplest of crochet stitches: single crochet and chain.

WATERS SHAWL Its mission is to keep you relaxed. Waters shawl is worked from the top down starting at the center back. Four colors are combined in this design to create a smooth color gradient.

It also means that, except for the last color, there is not even the tiniest of leftovers.
