Granny Square Crochet Along Revisited (Week Three)

Crochet Breezy Shell SkirtAnother week down and what a great week it was. Lot's of granny squares were completed but as always there could be only one winner for the weekly draw. Congrats to Mary Cyphert Jellison for winning a years subscription to Mainly Crochet. I bet you can't wait to browse through all the wonderful patterns now at your fingertips.

This week we have a copy of the Breezy Shell Skirt pattern up for grabs thanks to Beverly Ross of Cozy Cactus Creations.

The breezy shell skirt is a light skirt that is perfect for summer! The pattern includes instructions for customizing the size and amount of ruffle, so you can make your skirt just as you want it. The skirt looks fantastic solid, or striped, so you can make it for the wearer's personality and style preference. The drawstring waist keeps it up, and helps the fit to last through some growing.




Cozy Cactus Creations is a co-op shop between two friends. Bev is the Crochet Head Honcho (official title) and loves turning yarn into beautiful things inspired by her carefree spirit. The Breezy Sell Skirt was her first design, and the most popular of the six currently released. Besides designing, and taking custom orders for crochet pieces, Cozy Cactus Creations makes some awesome sewn items.



Check out their Facebook Page, Etsy Shop, and Ravelry Store for more info 



She has also very generously given us a code to get $1 off the pattern in her Ravelry Store which means this pattern is only $2 for this week of the crochet along.








Please feel free to join us even if you haven't completed weeks one and two. You can always catch up later. You can find all the information about this CAL and the draw here:
