I bought this cotton yarn over a year ago, when I was first exploring fabulous yarns. I bought it online just to see what it was like. Well I loved it. But Inspiration had not struck so I didn’t buy more and I stayed in my stash all this time, until now!
A few weeks ago it was a friend’s birthday, and all of a sudden I knew what had to be done. I looked in my stash for an appropriate colour, but all I had was black! And good thing too, because I don’t think this could have turned out any better.
After some hunting, I found this Japanese crochet pattern on Ravelry and got to work! Once I started on the fringing, I worried there wouldn’t be enough yarn to complete it, and it turned out I was right. I decided instead to do one row of single crochet all around and I think it actually turned out much nicer. And you know what else? No pair of scissors ever touched this yarn. All I had was 3 inches left to weave in and that was it! My modified version was the perfect fit for this ball of yarn!
Clearly it was all meant to be. My friend loved it!
