I was just about to post about all the things I have managed to queue up (the delicious tangle of yarn and over taxing oneself with a huge TO DO list), when I thought. Nah, I will show them a little Ta-dah first. Far less stressful you know?
I may have mentioned my little project that has been accompanying me in the car, back and forth to the airport, to the beach etc. You know, one of those projects that requires no pattern, no patience and just a little bit of love and togetherness to get it done?
And in between reading the Traci Harding, Mystique series and trying to catch up with a gazillion other things, like overdue housework, gardening, planning homeschooling activities and trips and stuff for the term..... I actually managed to finish something. Wow.
I also managed to start a few other things, but lets just not go there right now. Okay?
I pretty much just made it up as I went and decided to stick with a simple repeat so that I would not really have to think much. I know lazy, but the effect turned out quite nice!
Here is the pattern I ended up with.....
I used a 5mm hook and Sean Sheep pure Australian wool (which is a quite rustic type of wool in the sense that it is spin quiet thin in some places and practically not at all in others. So you get a bit of a chunky look in places).
Start: Make 22 chain and turn.
Row 1: SC into 3rd ch, and to end.
Row 2: ch 3, DC in next and to end (Keeping a total of 20 across at all times)
Row 3: ch 2, SC across 19 stitches to end. ( I always use a ch 2 for a sc row start as it gives a neater stitch at the end).
Row 4: Ch3, DC in next st, (ch 1, skip next sc, DC in next sc) rpt to end.
Row 5: Same as row 3.
Rpt rows 2 - 5 to desired length ending with a row 3.
I went around the edges with a small wave pattern repeat of hdc, DC, hdc into one stitch, skip one, sc into next skip one and repeat. All the way round adding an extra sc into the corners. Twas quite the relaxing project indeed. Shame the rest of my list is not so simple! haha!
Meh! Lucky Im a laid back type of girl hey?
HAVE A BEAUTIFUL DAY MY FRIENDS!
Hugs and smoochies xoxoxo
