My Second Crochet Ta-Da Moment!
made using a pattern from
by Alison McNicol
I slightly adapted the finish of the item by folding a section over and then I secured it with a row of stitching using the same wool (like top stitching in sewing). By adding a hidden press stud (popper) with a decorative button - as suggested by Alison in her pattern - the wrap becomes a complete garment.
Other Crochet Plans
I am about to have surgery twice, about six weeks apart. So crochet will be my recovery pastime of choice. I've amassed a credible amount of gorgeous yarn to make new cushion covers for the lounge. We have a rather green room - seating and curtains AND rugs) so injecting some bright shades will make a difference. That they will be handmade covers will make even more impact - as long as they don't look shabby. My main challenge - apart from hooking, following a pattern and getting to the end - will be sewing in the ends without creating unnecessary bulk - any tips?
The book, Crochet (DorlingKindersley), I'll be using is so inviting, I'm reading it whenever I can!
