Look what I did yesterday! I found a pretty crochet pattern via Pinterest, and promptly pinned it to my own Pinterest archives. I've been wanting to make triangle-shaped crochet for a while now. You know the kind that doesn't curl up or turn into a circlangle (that is my version of a mix between a circle and a triangle).
I made it with 6(ish)ply acrylic and a 3.75mm hook. I can't believe how big it ended up. There's a bit of perspective - my fresh-off-the-boat business cards (woohoo!) are right there too.
This has been steam-blocked. I've mentioned blocking before - I can't mention how much blocking has changed my yarny-life.
PS. Although this looks complicated, it really wasn't too hard to do. It required patience (I almost gave up a couple times), persistence (I was stubborn enough to persist), and a keen eye for not missing anything on the chart. Which I did. Twice. And I pulled it apart to fix my mistakes, twice.
You can see there are a lot of fine lines - chains - which make up most of this pattern, which also makes it crochet up faster than you expect it to.
Do you dare have a go and send me a photo/put a link in the comments?
