Just a little update on stuff I’ve been crocheting of late. I recently finished my first project using Boodles yarn. These are spools of thick stretchy jersey material.
The colours vary massively and it’s very hard work on the wrists. But it’s strangely satisfying. Like a really good workout!
I followed a free pattern from Ravelry that took me to this page. The pattern suggests using two threads of yarn together. I used one thread of Boodles and a 10mm hook. It took about three and a half spools to complete. It’s HUGE and I love it!
I’ve nearly finished a second smaller basket using this pattern. I’m going to use it as a yarn bowl to stop my balls of wool from scooting all around the floor while I’m working!
Last time I looked Boodles were on special offer at Hobbycraft. Have a go if you’re feeling brave!
