Here are the rest of the colors Red Heart has to offer in the Boutique Treasure line.
I will describe working with this yarn in one word..............HEAVENLY!
The yarn is very loosely spun & has 2 plies of 2 different colors, changing colors throughout the entire skein. At first, I thought the looseness of the plies would lead to "splitting" as I worked crochet stitches, but I was very surprised that it didn't!
The softness of the yarn is truly like crocheting with a cloud! The yarn flowed through my fingers with such care & grace!
The colors....THE COLORS!!!!! I would love to scream to all of the world how STUNNING the colors are in this yarn. The gradation of the colors are so subtle, complimenting the softness of the yarn, yet the colors POP creating such a unique variant in each crochet piece you create! The yarn creates such a mosaic of color transformation, it is hard to NOT look at the crochet piece!
Here are some pictures of the Chevron Lace Shrug while I was creating the pattern.
So lets get on to the FREE pattern......
