It’s been a little crazy around ELK Studio lately. So, I hope you’ll be excited to see Project #3 of the Christmas Present CAL. Kodey’s asymmetrical shawl is a really fun, quick and easy crochet design that is perfect to give to someone you love.
Have you used the Red Heart Chic Sheep yarn by Marly Bird? It’s an amazing yarn that is super squishy, soft and warm. The stitch definition with this yarn is incredible. I can assure you that you’ll love it once you try it.
