Designer: Brenda Grobler We, at Nurturing Fibres HQ, strive to keep our footprint on the environment as light as possible. Amongst other things, we don't use plastic bags to shop anymore. But we know how super busy moms can be. With careers, with kids, with everyday stuff. Remembering to take the fabric bags along for the weekly shop might not be at the top of the list! This is where the Moscow Market Bag comes in. Firstly, it can be made in any one of our three Eco ranges of yarns and the best part is, that it has a handy little pouch as part of the design, so the entire bag can be folded and stored in even the smallest of handbags. The entire project uses only two balls of yarn in contrasting colours and only takes a few hours to complete, making it an easy AND economical project. PS. We used this bag extensively during our recent visit to Russia and it was brilliant!
The Namos Flower is such a versatile little motif. Make loads and crochet together as a throw, or make a poncho, or a simple shell top, the choice is yours. Lizelle designed the flower in memory of her dad that passed away in March. He loved wild flowers, especially those from the Namaqualand region in South Africa. Yarn: Eco-Fusion / Eco-Cotton BonBons (all our yarn bases would be terrific for this pattern)
Designer: Lizelle Mostert
Alternative Yarns: Eco-Bamboo, Eco-Cotton
Designer: Yuli Nilssen This shawl is based on the same pattern as the MoonTide but extended to fun shawl. It will keep your shoulders warm on moonlit walks.
A quick make, using two strands of Eco-Cotton together. This produces a thick fabric. The stitch pattern adds lots of textural interest. Pattern Difficulty: Advanced Beginner
Designer: Brenda Grobler Grab your bag and head off to your favourite market!
