Crochet SWATCH is a small sample, a test (very often square) piece of crochet fabric, usually worked in the same stitch pattern as your future project.
Sometimes you just can’t or simply don’t want to use the yarn recommended in the pattern for a certain project. But you still want to follow through the pattern and get the same item.
There are three types of fibers: Natural, Synthetic and Blended. How to decide what is the best yarn fiber and weight for your particular design or project?
Nowadays, you can crochet with pretty much everything – from plastic bags to recycled newspapers. But we’ll stick to the most common fibers here.

This pocket shawl is one of my first and favorite patterns. Though published late last winter, it became the bestseller pattern in its category on Etsy shortly after. If you are getting ready again, this season, to make something truly unique, so rich in texture, cozy and elegant, rustic and modern at the same time, then this pattern is just what you need.
