Throw Making

Hi,

I hope you have all enjoyed your Christmas fun?  We had a lovely Christmas and lots of fun together.  It just goes so quick...

Anyhow I can finally share a project that I have been up to for a while and managed to complete just in time for a Christmas present for my Mum.  I know she reads the blog so I could not let on what I was up to on here.

I used Sirdar Hayfield Bonus Aran Tweed - Stormcloud as the main colour for the throw.  I used just over 2 balls of this to complete the project.


I used a simple stitch which was made up of 3 stitches a double crochet and then 2 trebles, then skipped two chains for each row.  There is a full tutorial for this on www.crochetspot.com


I simply followed this until the throw was the size I wanted.  


My Mum loves a bit of sparkle in her life and for the border I chose Sirdar Soukie DK - Starstruck as it has sequins embedded within the wool.  Firstly, I double crocheted around the edge then followed round with a treble.  Next I used a simple shell stitch skip 1 chain 5 trebles in the next chain, then skip the next chain and repeat.







I am really pleased with the finished result and it has made a great throw.  I gave it to my Mum yesterday and she seemed very happy with it.  I hope it keeps her nice and cosy when our normal icy winter finally arrives...which I am sure it will when we least expect it!

On to my next project now.....

Bye for now
