BROWSING IN THE LOCAL LIBRARY...

Had 20 minutes to kill yesterday before our Knit and Natter started so popped into the library half a dozen books to look at on crochet picked one to bring away.
oops! not the best picture but a couple of designs caught my eye....because someone had asked me about them recently.
 
Decided to have a little play....
I thought that it looked familiar....
the square motif from page 117 in particular.....now where had I seen it before?
a French blogger HERE Isn't it a stunning throw?
 
....I decided the hex version was better for what I wanted (a shawl/wrap, smaller holes) but I do love the square version very much.
 
The hex version I found in the boook has a different number of chain sts on each row, but it seemed like there were too may stitches my tension probably so I made mine just the way you would make a simple basic hex with 6 x 3chain corners increasing 2 st each side on each round.
 
 
have fun

Needed a couple of colours but ended up buying 16 I think at last count?
Stylecraft Life DK...
 
25% wool, 75% acrylic...a more woolly look to the yarn for those who aren't convinced about acrylics.
The colours I couldn't live without
cream
taupe
copper
melon
heather
clover
fuchsia
crocus
cardinal
cascade
aqua
daffodil
mint
zing
fern
crimson...a new red just out
just fell in love with it I did
can't believe the small amount of wool in it can make it so springy and woolly looking?
