I managed to get my hands on quite a lot of Patons Colour Works Aran at a bargain price. Better still the colors are gender neutral (not that colours should be gender specific, but that’s getting off point).
I’m making some accessories for when it turns colder. Some of them may be destined to become Christmas gifts.
I’ve started with a simple scarf consisting of double crochet (US terms) and chains to create squares. I’m using a 10mm crochet hook so it has a very loose, mesh like and soft look.
I think I’m about two thirds of the way through; I’ll share a picture of the completed project within the week.
After this, I’m planning on a hat and fingerless gloves using the same yarn. That said, I’ve also got a couple of Amigurumi minions to make for a friend… we’ll see what I’m inspired to crochet first. 🙂
