And that, as they say, is that.
A nice easy project, too.
Enjoy making and don't forget to use that discount code!
It would be perfect for so many things- blankets, shrugs, gloves, hats, jumpers, cushions... but I decided on something just for me.
And it involves a bit of granny striping.
The perfect pick-up-and-put-down-kinda-project for when you're as busy as a bee.
I like crocheting with this yarn; I'm using a 4mm (US G/6) hook, which is working out perfectly. I reckon you could use a slightly smaller hook, too. The yarn is smooth and clean to work with and doesn't split (hooray!).
And being a mix of acrylic fibres, it will wear and wash well, too.
It's not finished yet, but as soon as it is, I'll show you.
And you'll get the pattern too.
If you'd like some of this gorgeous yarn for yourself, then pop along to Black Sheep Wools and say hi. They've got loads in stock, along with just about everything else you could ever need for your crochet and knitty projects. Have a great weekend, Sarah x
So, on a recent mooch around t'internet, I found some little sew-in purse frames and a few ideas were formulated.
(All of which involved crochet, you'll be pleased to know).
So I drew a few sketches and mucked around with some yarn and a hook, and I'm pleased to say, both designs worked first time (a rare, but welcome event, as any designer knows).
If you also fancy mucking around with some yarn and a hook, then the pattern to make both is available just over there in my Etsy shop. You'll need a 65mm frame (find these in craft shops or online) and some dk yarn.
These would make gorgeous presents for ...dare I say the C-word ??
