This week I can’t wait to share another gorgeous block with you all. The Saxon’s Ladder has everything you’d expect from Tangled & Tied along with a few new twists that are sure to delight!
Let’s learn a little more about the square and the designer behind it!
Shelly Jackson is the yarn vixen behind the lens of Tangled & Tied. She has a flawless eye for color and style and her page is a reflection of that! All of her yarny creations are expertly crafted and her fans are wowed and delighted whenever she posts something new!
You can find her all around the internet!
A few words from Shelly!
The desire to create is one of the deepest yearnings of the human soul. -DIETER F. UCHTDORF
Ok, so he wasn’t taking about yarn. But still, it carries a ring of truth, no? I make things to feed this desire. Tangled and Tied was born from a desire to create 100% handmade luxury quality products using premium materials.
Thoughts about her newest pattern, Saxon’s Ladder!
Using Jacob’s Ladder techniques to build a traditional Saxon’s Braid creates a richly textured square easy enough for the beginner but fun for those with more experience as well.
I chose to highlight the texture of the overall pattern. I was drawn to the idea of using two concepts already familiar to most people who crochet, and combining them into something unique.
Important details about this block from the designer:
Gauge: 25 sc x 30 rows = 7” x 7”.
Skill Level beginner
Materials Used: Knit picks comfy worsted heathers, I 5.5mm hook
I hope you enjoy tackling this week’s block and you’re looking forward to next week’s exclusive design by ShopKimberlie!
