Hmm, it has been a long time since I’ve written here. Not really in line with my «9th of June Resolutions», but I don’t give up. Especially that I have lots of projects to share, enough for several posts. Here are the leg warmers for my older daughter:
They are crocheted from 50% merino wool, 50% acrylic double knitting yarn, hook sizes 5 and 6. The instructions are modified from here.
Starting at lower edge with smaller hook, ch 30, join with sl st to form ring, ch 2, do not turn.
Rows 2 through 8: Repeat Row 1.
Row 9: With larger hook, ch 2, hdc in each sc across, join with sl st in top of ch-2, ch 2, turn.
Repeat Row 9 to length desired.
With smaller hook, repeat row 2 eight times. After last sl st, fasten off.
The flower was made using a beautifully illustrated tutorial here, with the only difference that I’ve made three layers of petals only. The brown yarn was leftovers bought from a charity shop, feels like pure wool. As it was rather thin, I used hook size 2.5.
Dear readers, could anyone recommend software for Mac, preferably free, to draw crochet patterns?
