I wanted to try out some patterns from my Jan Eaton book, just for the sake of experimenting and learning really.
I was pleased with the way a mix of wool and cotton went ok, although I’m not sure if it’s against ‘the rules’ (which I never follow anyway!)
What I didn’t quite manage was the colour change neatly and consistently.
I got a bit lazy counting stitches and the number of yarn overs per bobble!
And that ‘common problem’ of the turning stitch would still pester me after the piece was finished and I could see where the edges shrink and grow. My haphazard ways were teaching me a lesson!
I set to work on a basic white double crochet square – no distractions of colour, stitch or size. This time I would do the turning stitch mindfully and work regularly (a tall order for me) so that I could actually remember what I’d done in the previous row!
Well it paid off when I got a perfect square. I purposely avoid the perfection game so it was a pleasant surprise.
I followed a simple picture – pattern I’d seen on Pinterest. And the little white square turned into a bunny!
