Happy Autumn everyone!
I hope you've been enjoying these first few days of the season. Any day now I'll be able to start wearing my crochet shawls and I can't wait :) I love this time of year, autumn is my favourite season. What is yours and why?
I've made another version of my All at Sea Shawl from Simply Crochet 22:
This one was a gift for my mom in law and she loved it! She really liked the yarn I used. It's Premier Yarns Serenity Garden and the colour is called Crocus. It's a 5ply/sport weight yarn so it's bigger and I only did two repeats of the pattern.
I've also finished my doily cardigan:
This was fun to make and so easy. I'll be making more of these, it's so simple to adapt a doily pattern to make it into a cardigan, just chain enough space to leave two arm holes and follow the rest of the pattern as it says.
I had a go using a new crochet technique this week too, Bavarian Crochet.
I used some of my cotton stash and made a holder for my phone to sit on when it's on my desk:
I love those colours together! So bright and cheerful :)
There is a really great tutorial by Crochet Geek on YouTube if you want to try out the stitch.
Have a happy Sunday!
