I was back out at the farmers market a couple weeks ago. During the course of the day, one of the other vendors came over to ask me a question. Could I make...?
I had not seen such a thing before. But it appeared simple enough.
Upon getting home, I went to do some research. There are some people who can see a crocheted item and know exactly what to do to reproduce it. I liken these people to those who can play music by ear--they hear it once and can play it for you.
I, however, am like the musicians who need to have the sheet music in front of them. I can follow a crochet (or knitting) pattern easily. But reverse engineering a garment? I can do it, but it'll take me a while. And why should I, when a pattern can easily be found?
Besides, it turns out that what I had envisioned was way more complicated than the pattern turned out to be.
First, you get an object that looks like this...
And then with finishing...
Well, it turns into something more recognizable. And if I had lots of other knit and/or crochet projects to show off, I'd probably be writing about something else entirely today.
But this item fits C perfectly. So, rather than steal an A to Z post and scramble for a C post next Monday, I'm just going to tease you with this. Although, I bet some of you already know what this is going to turn out to be.
