I just loved every moment of this pattern – found here.
I decided to use Paton’s Embrace (no affiliation) because it is just so soft and no surprise there being 90% merino and 10% silk. Of course you’ll see the pattern calls for a 2.5mm hook but I decided to explode that and used a 4mm hook instead and my oh my how it reveals the pattern!
I made it for my mother in law this Chrissy just gone and she loves it. So much so that I have decided that I am jealous and that I want one in blue. Now.
Did you make anything for loved ones this Christmas?
What was it?
Can I have the pattern? Err…I mean to say if it’s no trouble of course and it was a freebie (laughs nervously, attempting to hide pattern crazed nature…) then you know I would love to take a peak – in fact – why not share your finished gifts from last Christmas over at The Crafty Poppet on Facebook? That would be so cool I can’t wait to see your projects!
Don’t you just love the patterns on the Pierrot site though? I mean seriously if you haven’t been there just drop everything right now and snag yourself a freebie (or totally pig out and download them all like I did in a more than predatory like manner).
