So after my feverish knitting for my Princess Pooch to protect her from the elements, not only has the weather improved but she has also very pointedly showed me (by rolling into something very, very smelly) that she did not want to make any fashion statements. But she hasn’t stopped shivering. This is my solution.
A while ago I came across this irresistible pattern. I don’t know about you, but I just had to try it. Those swirls in different colours, some off-centre, just totally captivated me. Plus crochet is just so fast!
So here are the individual vorteces:
I used chunky yarn in yellow, navy, apple green and grey. The half-way stage was reached really quickly but then the remainder is a slightly longer commitment on each vortex. The squares really are quite big using chunky yarn – about 60cms. The other thing I noticed was that the vortex square which is off-centre needed quite a lot of blocking – I must have got the tension/stitch count all wrong because it was just not wanting to lie flat.
Word of warning to the uninitiated – these squares have a LOT of ends to work-in. So many in fact, that I still haven’t finished them all despite the fact that it is now in full use.
May your week be better than mine so far!
