I hope you have all enjoyed your Christmas fun? We had a lovely Christmas and lots of fun together. It just goes so quick...
Anyhow I can finally share a project that I have been up to for a while and managed to complete just in time for a Christmas present for my Mum. I know she reads the blog so I could not let on what I was up to on here.
I used Sirdar Hayfield Bonus Aran Tweed - Stormcloud as the main colour for the throw. I used just over 2 balls of this to complete the project.
I used a simple stitch which was made up of 3 stitches a double crochet and then 2 trebles, then skipped two chains for each row. There is a full tutorial for this on www.crochetspot.com
I simply followed this until the throw was the size I wanted.
My Mum loves a bit of sparkle in her life and for the border I chose Sirdar Soukie DK - Starstruck as it has sequins embedded within the wool. Firstly, I double crocheted around the edge then followed round with a treble. Next I used a simple shell stitch skip 1 chain 5 trebles in the next chain, then skip the next chain and repeat.
I am really pleased with the finished result and it has made a great throw. I gave it to my Mum yesterday and she seemed very happy with it. I hope it keeps her nice and cosy when our normal icy winter finally arrives...which I am sure it will when we least expect it!
On to my next project now.....
Bye for now
