An account of the craftwork I get up to, tatting, spinning, knitting, sewing, whatever
Monday, April 18, 2016
I have finished knitting all the parts of my black cardigan but haven't yet put them together. After weeks of working with black, I need some colour in my life! I also need a gift for a baby shower at the end of the week. I'm using up my handspun wool scraps to make a pram blanket.
I had to learn to read a crochet chart to make this. I've been using knitting charts for years but never managed to get the hang of crochet charts. The pattern on http://www.mypicot.com/is only given in a chart and since this pattern is just what I was looking for, that was the incentive I needed to learn how to follow a chart. I can use quite short bits of wool, especially for the narrow rows, which makes this pattern perfect for using up scraps.
