waldo's puzzle

Another one for the 2009 Block-A-Month CAL...

waldo

pattern used:

hook used:
  • pattern calls for 5.omm hook... I have used a 4.omm hook

yarn used:
  • pattern calls for worsted weight/10ply yarn
  • I used a variety of reclaimed DK/8ply yarns
  • ring 1 - cream
  • ring 2 - brown and white fleck
  • ring 3 - cream
  • ring 4 - brown and white fleck
  • round 1 - petrol
  • round 2 - dark burgundy
  • round 3 - river gum green
  • round 4 - oatmeal
  • round 5 - peacock blue
  • round 6 - cream
  • round 7 - mid blue
  • round 8 - brown and white fleck
  • round 9 - river gum green

thoughts:
  • I was initially terrified of the intersecting rings at the centre of this piece, but I needn't have been
  • the pattern is very clear... and has detailed step-by-step photos to guide you through the beginning of the square
  • if you take your time and follow the photos closely, you will easily be able to complete this complex looking square!

Well for goodness sake - I also have never seen this done before - what a great idea.....creating a frame around a 'window'. What a way to showcase stitches: a unique type of sampler. I love your expression of it. Thank you!
