Crochet Notes - Camper Van Cushion

Camper Van Cushion

I used this pattern from Ravelry and I used the Lion Brand Aran recommended. I needed two whites really and if I did it again I would order two so that I could finish the top in white. I didn't have enough white for the flower - but I'm ok leaving that out.

On the back I decided to do a number plate which I used and oddment of yellow DK for - but I doubled the yarn. I did 10 chain plus 2 for the first dc and I did 3 rows. Which I then framed with the grey.

Crochet Notes - Yoma Bag

Last year I went Christmas shopping with some friends in Brighton, it was a lovely day out, pottering around the lanes, looking for unusual gifts and having the obligatory lunch with a bottle of wine. Whilst there I treated myself to a new purse in a shop called Yoma and they gave it to me in this delightful little red bag for life. It has a lovely strong black piping and swirls and I thought it would make a nice little project bag. Well it has taken a while - but here it is.

In my stash was 3 balls of Roxy and they proved just right for the occasion.

Yarn: 3 balls of Wendy Roxy and 3 balls of Wendy Mode DK
Hook: 4mm

Make 18 squares like this:

Roxy Circles:
6 chain
Round 1:12 trebles
Round 2:12 x 2 trebles
Round 3:12 x 3 trebles

Black Square:
Round 4: 3 chain, 2 trebles, 2 chain, 3 trebles, **2 x 3 trebles, corner - 3 trebles, 2 chain, 3 trebles, repeat from ** until you have to join the round with a slip stitch.

Round 5: Go round again.

2 x black squares for the bottom.
As above but all black.

90 Chain - treble into each chain, treble round the end and up the other side - fasten off.

Knitting Knotes - Bremen Reyna
