I have been trawling my crochet Pinterest board as inspiration for a holiday crochet takeaway.
I want something that doesn’t require me to refer constantly to a pattern and something that doesn’t require too much counting for when I pause to accept a glass of wine, or perhaps an olive or two, whilst I sit and gaze across the shimmering turquoise sea, adjusting my hat and my lounger as the sun moves around the bay.
Ahem! Back to the reality of a my day job in a cloudy chilly Leeds.
So I think I’ve decided upon this
Or at least I will use this for inspiration.
There are lots of examples of this type of work on this website here
A cushion cover crocheted in natural dishcloth cotton.
I’ll probably close up the gaps to the background grid slightly. I will incorporate some minky coloured crochet cotton to make some of the featured swirls. I might even design/makeup the swirly pattern in a more free hand way.
It depends on how how chilled I am and which way the sun is shining………..
