About the design.
This design is crocheted with 3 kinds of Scheepjes yarns. The example is made with Scheepjes Whirl 755 Blueberry Bambam, 781 Sea Breeze Tease, Scheepjes Whirlette 852 Frosted and Scheepjes Mohair Rhythm 689 Cha Cha.
Gaia Tarantino from Crafting Tales is the designer of this beautiful wrap, which is named after her inspiration: the magical sea views of the Italian Riviera. The sea and the reflection of the sunrise are highlighted in the design. The Alto Mare wrap can be worn in different styles and fashions.
You need two yarn cakes of Whirl if you want to crochet the Alto Mare Wrap. Depending on your taste, you can make this wrap in every colour you desire! With a composition of 60% cotton / 40% acrylic, the whirl is extremely well-suited for making light and airy projects. Every yarn cake has an enormous length of 1000 meters with lovely long colour changes. Scheepjes Whirl is available in no less than 39 colours.
To make the wrap, you also need one ball of Whirlette. The Whirlette is a 100-grams yarn cake (455m!) with yarn identical to the whirl, except for the whirlette consisting of one colour. The colours of the whirlette perfectly match our Whirl cakes.
The 'sun' in the pattern is crocheted with Scheepjes Mohair Rhythm. This yarn consists of 70% Mohair and 30% Microfiber, creating a silky soft effect with a deluxe look and feel. Mohair Rhythm is available here in 6 shades but if you would like another shade please do get in touch and I will add it to my next order.
Lisa designed the shawl for Lusciously Loopy to use exclusively for one year and now that time has passed the pattern is available to purchase separately. If you would like to purchase the pattern on its own please hop over to Lisas' Ravelry or Etsy shop.

This is the first product brought to you by Lusciously Loopy in collaboration with Designer Lisa Cook of Lisasattik. Lisa is a very talented new crochet and knitting designer and her beautiful designs and well written patterns are available here on Ravelry and I am thrilled to be working with her. Her inspiration was the landscape of the Cumbria Way and we worked together to choose shades for her to make the shawl in. The three we choose capture the late autumnal landscape with the almost limestone boulders and the grey of the slate.We wanted to offer a kit that felt like a treat to yourself but could also be a perfect gift to give to a crocheter in your life. The ingredients are of a good quality and in large part have been sourced from other small businesses.

Loopy about Craft. Kits that feed your creative side. For the festive season: A little box with a lot of heart, designed to share the love and celebrate the Little Stars in your life. Perfect to celebrate the arrival of a new baby. Another way I have used these stars is to give them with a little gift to the older siblings of a new arrival. But really no reason is needed. Just because they are a Star.
Choose three balls of Scheepjes Catona Cotton and add to your basket with this kit. Use code stargarland at checkout to get £2.97 credit for the Catona Cotton. (this code is only redeemable when used in conjunction with this kit) The kit costs £11.50 plus £2.80 uk postage.
You will require a 3mm hook. This is not included in the kit but I have Clover and Knitpro waves amongst other hooks in stock. I designed this very simple but effective star with novice crocheters in mind. If you have the basic stitches you can expand your repertoire with this design. You can choose the shades you make the garland in. Choose the colours your little star loves or match them to a nursery/bedroom/playroom.
A crochet kit for you to make and then gift in the box it comes in or you can gift the kit for the recipient to crochet and then gift to the little star in their life. There is everything needed to wrap the finished item beautifully. The kit has tissue paper in that can be used again and there is a bobbin with curling ribbon, a kraft tag with star cut out and a star charm to add to the tag. There is also a postcard included, designed especially for this kit, it can be framed. There will be room in the box for you to add a special little gift should you wish.
Everything fits neatly in the reusable Kraft box.
