Running Short


 I didn't expect to run out of greeny turquoise yarn before I finished the second stripe. What to do, what to do? I couldn't just undo to the beginning of the round and leave it out because the previous row was half double crochet, which wouldn't work well with the back post double crochet of the next row. I'd have to undo two rows, and then redo the double crochet row. Hmmm. If I was making this for a competition, I'd do that, of course. But since I'm making this for me, I decided to fudge things and use the slightly darker turquoise of the previous stripe to finish the round:

The colour is not glaringly different and I think once I've done the next (pink) stripe, it shouldn't be too noticeable. I will leave out the half double crochet round on the next wide stripe, and hope to have enough to finish. 


  1. I'd have done the same. The colors are lovely!

  2. That’s a shame you’ve run out but in the grand scheme of things I’m sure it won’t be noticeable.

  3. Not noticeable if you hadn't pointed it out 💚💙💚💙💚

  4. That's okay in my book, looks beautiful.

  5. Wow it's so pretty!!! :)
    From here the bottom picture looks like five different colors squares on top of each other. ;)

  6. Beautiful 😍!! And nobody will notice. Beatiful pattern, too.
