case (2)

yarn used -
  • 12 ply grey reclaimed wool
  • 8 ply tweed reclaimed wool
hook used -
  • 4.0mm bamboo hook
comments -
  • there are two size options in this pattern... I made the cozy for the thin hooks
  • the shell edging was a bit too 'frilly' for me, so I worked a simple sc edging instead
  • worked all in the one colour... then I added an extra sc edging, including buttonhole loop, in the tweed yarn
  • omitted the ties
  • the button I used was taken from one of Mum's tops... so it gives the case great sentimental value to me
  • I love the ribbed effect on the outside of the case
