So I’ve basically become a crocheting machine. I’ve realized that as long as I keep my stitches simple, I don’t have to plan and I don’t have to think, so Netflix & Crochet can actually be a thang in my household. I was sent two skeins of this gorgeous Sprightly Spectrum Worsted Yarn in the Belize It Color Story from Bluprint. It’s a long striping acrylic/wool blend that is just glorious to work with.
I was looking for an easy pattern to do so I could zone off into the stories on my TV, so I used a 6 mm hook and went with a simple double crochet design. You basically chain two in the center and add three stitches on both ends as you add to it. I found a tutorial on YouTube that looks like what I did, so if you’re interested in making one, here’s a link.
I decided even before I started that I was making this for my mama. She has some quilty stuff I’ve made but nothing crochet and I know she’s always cold so I figured she’d use something like this. I’ve never worn a shawl so I don’t know when you’re supposed to wear them. Like to the opera? To the grocery store? Heck I don’t know, maybe this isn’t even a shawl and it’s called a wrap. If you know the difference, can you please tell me in the comments?
I finished it up during our last family movie night and now it’s ready to pop into the mail. But before I send it, I had to do a photo shoot in case my mom doesn’t send me a photo. If she does though I’ll add it here I promise. Until then, here’s my fashion show.
So fingers crossed my mama likes it and it keeps her warm and stuff. Now it’s time to figure out what to crochet next.
