After my small success with the crochet flower on my colleagues ceramic travel cup I decided to have another go. So after a bit of a search i found issue 22 of Mollie Makes which came with the above kit.
All that is needed was inside the packet and the actual instructions are in the magazine. So on a rare evening to myself I made a start.
I had to unpick what I was doing SEVEN times and after a while I eventually ended up with what you can see above and I was sooooooo chuffed with myself and I had no one to tell at the time and then Christmas arrived.
The picture does not do the yarn colour justice and I really like the shape that the pattern created. More to the point my effort actually look likes the picture!!
This is by far the most complicated pattern.crochet idea I have ever attempted and I feel (well hope) that maybe 2014 might be the year I start to unravel the crochet mystery where decoding the pattern instructions has been my main problem.
My next challenge is to use up the rest of the yarn to make the second coaster and get it to look similar to the first!
Before I go shall we have just one more look at it..........................?
Take care all!
