This is a new technique that sis and I learned together while she was here with the help of a tutorial that our friend Sandy has on her Crochet Cabana web site (see link at the side bar of this blog, yes I am lazy :). She gave wonderful instructions and I am hooked. I have decided to make a set of place mats that are reversible and I am using a variegated peaches and cream pound cone and miami ribbon yarn together. I am using a size G crochenit hook. The ribbon yarn side when done looks like a waffle pattern and it is very cool. Not sure how they will wash up since I am using cotton and acrylic together but I love the effects that the two different yarns give it.
Click on the photo to make them larger and take a closer look at the stitches. I like this technique much better than knitting. :)
Thank you Sandy for your wonderful Web Site and thanks to sis for sharing this learning experience with me.
