Last night, courtesy of Tracy’s blog post with her gorgeous pot holder pattern, i made a present for some friends we are going to visit today.
I’d stumbled across some really pretty cotton in our local wool shop and thought the two sets of colours would look nice together. What I hadn’t realised was that she had recommended worsted wool, not the double knit i’d picked up. I seem to remember that I was meant to have learnt this lesson a short while ago?? Anyway, it works up fine in the lighter weight, I just hope it functions as a pot holder/trivet. Hopefully it will as it has two layers crocheted together, plus a flower to give an extra bit of thickness.
This took about 3 hours to make, and was a nicely repetitive pattern, perfect for making with some background tv.
And a quick bonus photo for you of the shawl colours in daylight! Check out Cathy’s post for some gorgeous moorland photos.
