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.
