Mystery Vegetable


Mystery Vegetable

Crocheted in the round, I was trying out how to use increases and decreases for shaping; I adapted the leaves and stem from a flower pattern.
I was so excited to finish it, I neglected to think to stuff it to keep it’s shape.
My kids love to play with their floppy “white corn” – while I’ll always like to think of it as a chile pepper with carotene issues.

Oatmeal Bowl Cozy

Oatmeal bowl cozy

pattern from here. Made with double strand of sport weight yarn, a fuzzy grey and a pastel rainbow variegated.
It’s one of the first functional things that I made for myself that I really use.

The Hat I Made for Gabby

Pattern from here.

Worked in rounds, it came together pretty quick.
The transition from the top to the sides looks nice and crisp with to a back loop only dc.
If I do this pattern again, I’ll move the stripe down to the bottom of the band, and try a smaller gauge.
