So when Hobby Lobby opened back up, I couldn’t help myself because I was running low on cotton yarn and going to Spring and Summer….that isn’t good! Down the rabbit hole I went!
I saw this yarn and couldn’t help but think of Starry Night by Van Gogh. So I put it in my basket and headed for the jewelry making aisle for some charms. I found some great star and moon charms and went home to create!
I used a slight variation of my Coffee Sweater pattern as follows:
1 Skein I Love This Cotton in ‘Nova Scotia’
1 Crochet Hook Size I
1 Sewing Needle
1 Charm/Connector/Pendant to sew onto sweater
Ch 27, connect with sl st to form ring
Row 1: ch 1, hdc in same stitch as joined stitch, in back/bottom lump of each stitch, hdc around, sl st to beginning hdc
Row 2: ch 1, hdfp around 1st hdc from previous round, *hdbp, hdfp* repeat from * around, sl st to beginning hdfp
Row 3: ch 1, hdc in 3rd loop of same stitch, hdc in 3rd loop around, sl st to beginning hdc
Rows 4-7: ch 1, hdc in each stitch around, sl st to beginning hdc
Row 8: ch 1, hdc in 3rd loop of same stitch, hdc in 3rd loop around, sl st to beginning hdc
Row 9: ch1, hdfp around 1s hdc from previous round, *hdbp, hdfp* repeat from * around, sl st to beginning hdfp
Cut yarn, pull through sl st and weave in ends
Sew on star or moon charms as desired
I love how these turned out and I wanted to share this idea with my hookers! Fine art can inspire us in many ways and these are just so adorable! Art and coffee…what goes better together!?
Grab a skein and make some of these girls up! I got 10 sweaters out of 1 skein.
Let art inspire your work and …
Happy Hooking, Hookers!
