    Photo shows two shades of Color Waves (Tiger's Eye and Day Break) in the pattern for the Aurora Scarf.

    Color Waves is a variegated blend of 80% acrylic and 20% wool. Coming in at a CYC #3 (DK) weight, this yarn is versatile and can be used for garments, accessories, home items, and craft projects. It is on the heavier end of DK weight, so you may find it appropriate to swap for light worsted weight yarns as well. Recommended gauge is 14 single crochet = 4" using a H/5mm hook or 22 stitches in stockinette = 4" using US 6/4mm needles.

Gone are the days of denim being used exclusively for mens pants or overalls. Now we see the fabric appear as shirts, jackets, hats, bags, and even shoes. Denim styles are constantly evolving and updating with new fits, feels, and colors.

    Denim on Denim

    We pair denim with sturdy corduroy, soft furs, and delicate lace to create an array of aesthetics from rugged through softly feminine. So then how about pairing denim with denim? Does doubling denim make it twice as fun or a terrible mistake? Fashion faux pas or fashion trend? Turning our eyes on our favorite celebrities and trend sites would indicate that not only can it be done, it's right on the mark for 2017! The make or break is all in how it's done, and more importantly, how you feel wearing it.
