A little something just for me…

I’m sure I’m not the only person that spends most of their time making things for others.

I don’t mean to sound uncharitable, I love gifting my crochet, but I thought the other day, how nice it would be, to make a little fun something just for me.


So here is my little crochet cuff.


This is made using some lovely Koigu from Yarn Glorious Yarn. Koigu is a 4ply 100 percent merino wool yarn. It’s just gorgeous to crochet with. It doesn’t split or untwirl and seems to glide perfectly round my hook.


This is the first time I’ve tried beading into crochet. The most tricky bit was threading all the beads on first. I used mainly seed beads with a few Swarovski crystals added for extra sparkle.


Do you like it? The trick with the beading was to add the beads on a wrong-side row, and use a DC stitch – it kept them nicely lined up.


I wore it to work today, it’s really comfortable.


We finally had a patch of sunshine. Moo decided to take advantage.

  1. lovely! i’ve been too chicken to try working beads into anything, but a cuff seems like a more manageable first attempt – thanks for the inspiration!
    our dog is sad to lose the snow, but i think she likes the warm sun as much as your moo does 🙂

  2. As always, lovely. I have been very interested in doing some beading, however it is added my big list of things to learn to do with crochet. Slowly but surely I am getting better. One day.
