Hello my lovies, how are you today? I hope you are well.
It is very dark and dreary today in my neck of the woods. Not good picture taking weather at all. Luckily the sun came out yesterday and I used the time to take some pics of my recently finished project. I have been longing for colour and brightness to counteract the greyness of winter here in the UK and decided to make a colourful throw. I found a pattern in the same Japanese book that the pattern for the flowers came from.
When I posted about the flowers a couple of you lovely readers asked which book they were from. Now, I am usually very careful about letting you know where I get my ideas and patterns from but for some reason I forgot to say in that post. The book is called PRETTY COLOR CROCHET and KNIT GOODS 2...
And it is available from a lovely seller here.
There are many lovely, colourful patterns in the book and I fell in love with this image...
...and decided that I had to make my own. How could I resist?
I added a white border as I like to have a little bit of white to make the colours pop and here is how it came out...
It's not a very big throw, just a nice size to put over your legs whilst watching tv and doing a bit of crochet. The hexagons are quite easy after you have done the 1st one so it's quite a quick project and a good way to use lots of yummy colours.
If you are having a grey day today I hope that the colours have cheered things up a bit.
Take care, much love.
