If this year’s Fall weather is going to all be like what we’ve experienced so far, then it’s going to be wet and dark. That means I’ll need all the perkiness I could find to make sure the days are not too much of a drag!
I’m not particularly a flower lover but I’ve always wanted to know how to do the crocodile stitch in crochet. Since I’m home this week, I found an easy pattern — the Croco Flower that gave me an idea of the concept. The instructions looked kind “say what!” to me when I first looked at them, but the project turned out to be super easy, even for a beginner like me.
I ended up with the below — a little Autumn flower that would go well with my jackets! A kind of “Spring Flower In Autumn”! A kind of “Bloom” for the darker days of Fall!
I’m not sure that the yarn I used was the best one. I’m not sure if I’ll ever use this yarn again. It’s some Red Heart Fiesta in Coffee (yes … go ahead and curse me yarn snobs, but I do use acrylic .. 😛 LOLOL). The plying with the multi-coloured gold thread makes the stitches somewhat indistinguishable, but not enough to blind from the overall crocodile stitch effect. That makes the project not so much of a total bust!
All that’s left to do is to add a felt backing and attach a pin, then I’m ready to go!!!
Now that I understand the concept, this cowl is my next stop!
