Shoulders wrapped. Cocooned in a layer of pistasio green - soft and warm.
I picked up my hook and dove into my stash - Leonie was right, a crochet version does look fabulous.
I know it's going to get a lot of wear this winter... it sits perfecty over my long sleeved tee, and nestles wonderfully underneath my jacket... sandwiched beautifully!
Here's how if you'd like to know:
22"/56cm long x 41"/104 cm wide
Patons Wilderness. Color 0501. 5 x 100gm balls.
Hook and Notions:
7.00 mm crochet hook
My gauge: 6 stitches over 2".
I followed Leonie's measurements exactly.
DC (double crochet) for 12.5 inches.
DC 15, chain 25, dc 15.
Next row, DC in each stitch.
Continue back section until it measures 16 inches.
Continue crochet for another 12.5 inches.
Break yarn and weave in ends.
Beautiful simplicty. Thankyou Kirsty and Leonie for the inspiration xx
