Episode 62 Show Notes
You might have already seen this in my recent blog post and/or on my instagram feed.
It is the amazing Bark Sweater by Sidsel Sangild and you can buy the pattern here.
I used Madelinetosh Merino Light in the colourway Thunderstom and had a problem with one of the skeins being completely a different colour - and obviously not noticing this (or alternating skeins), until I had finished! Argh. You can even see in this image that I took way before I made the sweater that the third skein looks much darker, I’m not sure why I didn’t notice this. Anyhoo!
I also made a wavyc2c swatch which I love. The pattern is by Sanita Brensone and you can buy the pattern on Ravelry.
I used a variety of dk weight yarn from Stylecraft and Sirdar to make my swatch.
Another free flower pattern on instagram that I used recently was from @queen_babs this one (Jane has lots of free patterns on her instagram) was called the Cutie Pie Flower and I thought it was so darn cute.
I also learned interlocking crochet this week using an awesome video tutorial from The Crafts Teacher. Do check out her website and videos because she explains it SO well (so, so well), and I’m feeling quite chuffed with myself that I can now do this.
I talk about my confusion regarding Mosaic and Interlocking and how different they are and I mention Lily Chin’s book, Mosaic Magic which is great but I think uses a totally different mosaic method to the ones I’ve seen around. I say that but the book doesn’t tell you how to do it at all! Ha! It’s brilliant, properly vintage (as in no additional information provided) and so I’m a bit confused about the whole thing tbh so watch this space for further updates.
I also mention my two miley hexi blanket projects, both of which will probably take forever to make but they make me happy and so I’m not complaining. You can find the free pattern here.
If you haven’t do so already, you can watch the podcast here.
