4 More Reasons to Love Vickie Howell
It’s that time of year when the outdoors calls our names. A recent “heat wave” has the folks at Interweave longing for fresh air. A perfect pairing for gorgeous weather are Vickie Howell’s crochet kits. Named after locations in California, these accessories remind us of the wind, the ocean, the snow, and natural beauty while protecting us from the elements.
Bear Mountain Hat
If you need a hat that’s perfect for a day spent outdoors, try the Bear Mountain Crocheted Hat! Worked in an alpaca/merino blend yarn, you’ll want to make one for yourself and every skier, snowboarder, or hiker on your gift list. Buy the kit in bright colors (white, blue, gray, and orange) or moody shades (purple and gray) to get the pattern and all the yarn you’ll need for the small size. Having made this hat, I can confidently promise that you’ll love it!
Torrance Triangle Crocheted Shawl
The Torrance Triangle Crocheted Shawl is just the project I want to make for a day at the beach. Better yet, make it at the beach! It features an open stitch to let in that ocean breeze. Choose from two different color options when you order the kit. You’ll get 3 skeins of Mrs. Crosby Loves to Play Satchel, a superwash merino that can withstand some sand and fun in the sun. You can have those three skeins worked up into a stylish beach shawl in no time!

Silverlake Filet Crochet Shawl
Add to your wrapping options with the enlarged filet pattern of the Silverlake Filet Crochet Shawl is perfect. Made with variegated Schoppel Wolle Zauberall Crazy in greens and browns, this shawl dresses up any outfit no matter how you style it. Like Sara’s Torrance shawl, the Silver Lake shawl is easy to work up. Crochet the simple filet pattern as a wonderful way to pass the time on a cool evening.

Echo Park Crochet Infinity Scarf
Nothing inspires me to get out and enjoy the outdoors like a beautiful pink sunrise. The Echo Park Infinity Scarf Kit reminds me of an early morning sky, so it gets my hook stitching in the morning. Then it’s perfect for an evening walk with its warm bulky-weight yarn, big lacy stitches, and bright cheerful color. Grab your kit in fuchsia or lime green. The kit makes an extra-long loop so you can style it like a chunky cowl or long infinity scarf.
