Remember a while ago I showed you this picture?
Well now is the time for the “big” reveal (it’s probably not that exciting, heh!).
As you know, I have been teaching crochet. I thought it only appropriate that I should wear something I made to each of the classes (there are 3 separate sessions). I was good for the first and second sessions (boteh scarf to the first, and my super special birthday skirt to the second). But I needed a third, and I remembered this fabulous Japanese book I bought ages ago with thread crochet accessories.
And so for lesson three, this was my crochet piece:
And the students loved it! I showed a couple of them how to make it, and got all inspired by the shop’s stock of Perle 8 cotton and picked out my new jewels!
So these three were born:
If you look closely, you’ll see they are each slightly different. The silver grey is the same as the red – so in accordance with the pattern.
The pewter grey alternates small and large circles:
While the sunshine yellow has a longer chain between the circles:
This is a great demonstration of the versatility of crochet, I think. I love being able to take a pattern like this and give it a few tweaks. And this book is so full of inspiration, there are a few more pieces I wanted to try out as well. I still have the blue and orange/red “jewels” to play with, so expect to see more!
