This is more of a recipe than it is an actual pattern.  I rarely follow a pattern exactly as it is written. I’m a rebel in that way! The beauty of a recipe instead of a pattern is you can customize the design any way you like, to fit any size.  I can’t wait to see how you make this recipe your own!

(Please make note, the yardage is for the design as written.  If you make any changes, the yardage you will need to complete the project will be need to be adjusted.)

Supplies
150 yds WW yarn ( I used Lion Brand Wool Ease)
1 ball Long Fur yarn (I used Lion Brand Romance)
J Hook (or size needed to meet gauge)

Gauge: 15 sts x 14 rows in stitch pattern = 4”

Make 2

Ch 19
This is the length of the glove or boot cuff.  If you would like a longer or shorter version, please adjust the number of chains. (even number + 1 for turning ch)

Fold piece in half, right sides together. Slip st in the FLO of last row worked and BLO of the chains the first 9 sts,(if making the fingerless gloves, slip st in the BLO of the chains only for 5 sts (this creates the thumb hole for the fingerless gloves.  If you choose to make boot cuffs, continue to slip st in both sides all the way to the last st), slip st in the last 4 sts in the FLO of the last row worked and the BLO of the chains. Do not fasten off.

Working with fur yarn takes patience, but it is also very forgiving. It can hide small imperfections.  Push the fur to the side or the back to locate the stitches. Make sure to count your stitches as you work.

If you are new to cables I highly recommend watching this video from Tamara Kelly of Moogly.

Welcome to the Evergreen Shore!

2014-11-26 13.34.04

Where exactly is the Evergreen Shore, you might ask…

DSC01225

Well, really it is just a figment of my imagination. All of my inspiration comes from living just a stone’s throw away from the shores of Lake Huron. My husband and I bought a small cottage surrounded by woodland, mostly evergreen trees, about 20 years ago. We enjoy the downscaled, slower life of cottage living. Every day, we are amazed by the natural beauty that surrounds us.

DSC01141

A couple of years ago, we decided we wanted to share the simple life we live with others. My husband dabbles in landscape photography, and I design crochet patterns. We are both inspired by our local culture and natural surroundings. Our collaboration of sharing our little piece of the world began with a Facebook page. Maybe you have seen us around there. So, the Evergreen Shore was born. We have grown a small following from around the country. Most are folks who have visited our resort town and love it as much as we do.

DSC01095

Recently, we decided to make the leap into the blog world. Facebook provides a great community platform, but sometimes we have a little more to say to you. So here we are, leaping into a bigger pond. We hope you enjoy what we have to share with you. A little local culture, a bit of photography, and a good dose of fiber fun.
