Just for fun I had a go at crocheting coloured bobbles over a plain background, and here is the result
The bobbles are in Malabrigo Arroyo ‘lotus’ dk, and the background is Debbie Bliss rialto 4 ply ‘pale blue’
All done on a 4mm hook. The dk weaves in quite neatly at the back of the 4 ply without showing through.
Another jellyfish to add to our growing crocheted aquarium
This one is made with the remains of the Malabrigo Arroyo ‘Lotus’ with Rowan baby merino silk ‘Dawn’ for the underside. The tendrils are from bits and bobs in my stash basket, and include some Rowan 4 ply wool-cotton ‘Violet’ and baby merino silk ‘Rose’. I made it using a 4.5mm needle, and it was my first try ever using a ‘magic ring’ which I was very pleased with. (see http://bynumber19.com/2012/05/18/crochet-tutorial-magic-ring-or-adjustable-ring/)
