Thank you for your get well wishes, we are all on the mend and it's good to feel a little more human again.
I wanted a quick and easy project to start and complete over the weekend whilst languishing on the couch with tissues and lemsip. I scratched around in my stash (which feels like it needs some serious re-stocking!) and found the above three balls of Rico melange chunky yarn that I must of purchased last year. I had the perfect pre-winter quick crochet project in mind inspired by the lovely Victoria of Yarn around hook found here.
The original pattern as Victoria says comes from Annaboo's House and is deliciously chunky and super easy to crochet for any beginner.
I used two balls of yarn together with an 8mm hook (it was the biggest one I had without having to go out and buy a 15mm hook which the pattern suggests). I love the way the green and grey have entwined in this cowl/snood.
The perfect chunky snuggly gift to give this Christmas me thinks.
It's super warm and comfortable too. I think I have found myself a new love in the chunky side of hooky :o)
I can't believe I am thinking of Christmas presents already, my goodness, it really is getting closer.
Are you making any handmade presents this year?
Let me know, I'd love to come and see.
