I am really bored, you may think, but actually I am totally in love in crochet. I just want to sit and crochet and crochet and crochet 🙂 First day I’ve decided to make that rug we went to a Michaels and I bought just 2 balls of yarn. One black and one blue. After two days I had to go back there and buy 2 more. Even then it wasn’t enough, so we ended up going to the store one more time for two more balls, and there is just a little bit black yarn left.
If you interested this is the pattern:
Ch 55, 2 s c in 2nd st from hook, 1 s c in each remaining st of ch, working 4 s c in end st of ch, working on opposite side of ch, 1 s c in each remaining st, working 2 s c in same st as beginning, join in 1st sc.
2nd Round. 2 s c in same space, 2 s c in next st, 1 s c in each of the next 52 sts, 2 s c in each of the next 4 sts, 1 s c in each of the next 52 sts, 2 s c in each of the next 2 sts, do not join or turn this or following rounds. Place a marker at beginning of each round.
Next (x) Rounds. 1 s c in each s c increasing at both ends when necessary to keep work flat, join at end of last round.
Last round: sl around. fasten off.
Bacause I do not have the exact amount of stiches to increase in each row a few times I ended up unraveling rounds because it was too much (and the edges started to wave) or it was too little (and the edges started to curl).
Because I used two colors it’s very visible where I joined them. I kind of don’t like it. Next time I’ll know that in a pattern that you do not join rounds I should use one color if I don’t want the joints to be that visible.
Now I’m planning to make matching toilet seat cover, and top tray 🙂
In addition I keep forgetting about one great think that have happened to me a few days ago. My picture was featured at Evoking You. I am really happy about that.
