I have taken a break from knitting Christmas presents and knitting items for my etsy shop. This project is for me and I am really enjoying watching it come together. It is a series of patterns really, but crocheted one on top of the other with a beautiful cable and knurl pattern in between each section. I am about 3/4 done. Need to finish up this one section, add on the cable pattern and then crochet the beautiful boarder, which will add points to the ends of the patterns.
I so wanted to crochet this with some beautiful wool yarn but that would make it the MOST expensive project I have ever crocheted, so instead chose a soft acrylic yarn. The pattern is from the redheart site. Called Basketweaave Diamond Throw and Pillow, although I am not making the pillow just the throw. It is an easy pattern, there are a couple of stitches I had to think about first before jumping in but overall I think it is pretty easy and I may make another when I finish. I will show you a finished picture in another week or two when I have it complete!
