Yarn crush

Does it ever happen to you that you get your hands on a new yarn and you get carried away with it’s possibilities? Well I have a yarn crush on Scheepjes Stone washed XL….

The pattern is from byhaafner who I was introduced to by Lucie at lovelucie who is also making a byhaafner project.

There must be a typo on the pattern as the written version says to chain 120 stitches, and the diagram says to chain 200. So just in-case you are thinking of doing one yourself 120 stitches will give you a neck warmer, and 200 may well give you a cowl. Either way I love the moss stitch in two colours, and will certainly make something with this super soft and cuddly yarn again.

Made in Scheepjes Stone washed XL Moon Stone and Deep Amethyst, on a 5.5mm hook. The neck-warmer took 1 ball of each colour, and the cowl takes 2 balls of each. Next time I think I would use a 6mm hook to get a bit more drape.
