Tuesday, my crochet project of the night was the woven tartan blanket that I'm making for Lamar's parents. Needless to say, making the tartan mesh is a l...o...n...g... and boring job, so I decided to take a teensy little break. I have been wanting to make a super cozy cowl for a while now... I even had the yarn picked out (Lion Brand Homespun in 4 colors) but I kept saying, "I'll make it after the holidays..." So yeah, I made it last as my 'break from the tartan' craft.
I didn't use a particular pattern or anything, it's just a chain 102 loop, dc in 3rd chain from hook & across. The rest of the rows were turning ch of 2 and dc in the spaces across. I used a 'P' hook which is something like 11.5mm (HUGE!!) and that made it really gappy... if that makes sense. It almost looks like granny stripes.
Each color has 4 rows and it wraps around my neck 3 times ^.^ I'm very excited about that! I need to make a matching hat so I can be all fancy and whatnot. That'll be my next break project. Anywho, I love it so much! All I can say about it is that it's SO snuggly and warm :) Yay.
|Please excuse the sleepy eyes... It was like 1 am or something :)|
I'll post updated pictures of my holiday projects soon. I want to have more totally done instead of in progress. ^.^ I hope you have a great day!
