My Creative Space

This week has been quiet creativley speaking.

I started making M*'s Starberry Beret, but i totally ruined her pattern by using different size wool and hook, its a trial and error thing, sorry M*, i will stick to the pattern for my next version. This one will be finished tonight hopefully. Its nice and chunky.

Also been playing with paper this week, the collaged artworks here (need more stuff on these i think, thinking mixed media bits and pieces) and see earlier posts for my Origami flower artwork and Paper boats Mobile.

Visit Kootoyoo sometime today to see all the other spaces around and play along too

Oh dear! I just posted my space and referred to you in it hoping you were doing alright with the pattern!! LOL!

If you want to use a different sized hook and yarn then all you need to make sure is that you measure the width of the top of the beret . It needs to measure around 27 - 28cm in diameter so if it's a larger hook/yarn you will need to stop increasing sooner. Just remember that you may need less rows overall if this is the case so you will need to account for this during decreasing and the band. And if you want to use a finer hook and yarn then it is the complete opposite. Just make sure it measures 27 - 28cm in diameter.

=D
