A while back (ahem, October actually!) I started a crochet project. I knew it would take a while.
The wait was worthwhile though.
One of those accessories that becomes a firm favourite, and gets worn everywhere.
It's a true one-off, as I can no longer get this yarn and I came up with the design myself using a pattern from my stitch directory.
The yarn deserves a little discussion. It's a hand-dyed cotton/rayon blend, hand-dyed in the U.S. and purchased before I started dyeing my own.
This yarn radiates with the most fabulous sheen, and drapes beautifully. The pastel pink/lilac/blue colourway is perfect for spring and summer.
I've made another of my button brooches as the fastener. It has a button at the front for decoration, but also another at the back so you can use it as a brooch pin to fasten the wrap in whatever arrangement you like.
Now if I really get my act together I'll write up the pattern too!
