At last, a post about something that isn’t food!
Last month, I kept seeing the most gorgeous crochet afghan showing up on my Instagram feed. After investigating a bit further, I discovered the joys of a crochet along and the beautiful Sophie’s Universe. After crochet like crazy since I returned from Sevilla (travel report still to come), I am finally up to date and eagerly awaiting the next installment’s release on Sunday.
This is a little closeup of my favourite part of Sophie.
We’re now about half way through and I have to say the pattern has been a joy to crochet. Very little repetition and lots of interesting new stitches and features throughout. If you’d like to give it a go, pop over to the designer, Dedri’s site at Look What I Made. The instructions are very clear and well written. If you do decide to give Sophie’s Universe, I’d love to see your colour scheme and progress.
I decided to do this Sophie in Stylecraft DK from my stash. I’ve had to buy a couple of balls when I’ve run out of a colour I’ve wanted to use again, but it has been great stash-buster so far.
Oh, and did I mention I’ve already started another one in a more subdued colour scheme, as my original is earmarked for my niece as a starting school gift. I’ll miss Sophie #1 so much when she goes though!
Happy hooking xx
