project #9 - trellis & vines


pattern used -
yarn used -
  • ssshhhhh.... don't tell anyone, but I've used NEW YARN... brand new!!!
  • I was given this yarn in a care package from a fellow crafter (thanks Lyndy)
  • it's a fun, sequinned yarn in a deep emerald green colour
  • Lincraft - Shooting Star Yarn - 50g ball
  • I used less than half of the ball
hook used -
  • 2.5mm steel
thoughts -
  • the original pattern calls for this to be worked in crochet thread and leaf beads, it is designed to 'dress up' a plain t-shirt or top
  • it wasn't really my style... so I decided to play around with the sequinned yarn instead, and omit the beading
  • I won't ever wear this... but I'm thinking that it would make an interesting trim on a knitted top
  • it will go into my stash, and you may see it re-appear one day on a garment for my daughter

It absolutely looks like intricate beadwork, and I love it. Holy cow, woman, do you sell your labors at all? Ebay, perhaps? Because I think I'd be first in line to make you an offer for this's stunning!
