Yep, this is another ta-dah! Haven't I been productive?! Over my birthday and Christmas, I was lucky enough to receive two copies of the book 'Cute and Easy Crochet' from some lovely people... so I swapped one of them in Hobbycraft for some balls of yarn in the sale!
This is what I've made with one ball of Rowan pure wool aran:
It is a cowl knitted in a cable pattern, with these lovely wooden 8mm knitting needles:
And this is how the cowl looks on...!
|I look like such a poser!!|
It was quite quick to knit up, as it is in chunky yarn on big knitting needles. I was originally going to make a bigger loop that I could double round my neck. In the end I decided to stop when it was big enough for just once round, as I thought it would be easier to wear. I sometimes get annoyed if I've got too much going on around my neck!! (Weirdo!) The fact that it was finished quicker didn't hurt either!
The pattern I used was from here. This attempt went much more successfully than the failed one I tried to crochet a while back, which some of you may remember!
Oh, and look at these beautiful roses from the Lumberjack!!
More brownie points for him!!!
