FO Friday: Chanson En Crochet
Pattern: Chanson En Crochet (available for free here)
Yarn: Rowan Summer Tweed (70% Silk 30% Cotton) 50g x 4
Modifications: No major ones – simply omitted the buttonhole as I wanted to use a vintage brooch instead.
Notes: I was very doubtful about my yarn choice all the way through this project and there were a couple of times that I came close to ripping it back and using it for something else. It just seemed much too stiff and chunky for the capelet but I’m pleased to say that it blocked up wonderfully and I’m happy with the end result. I found the brooch at my local flea market and it seemed made for the yarn. Oh, if you’re going to give this a go, make sure you download the errata as well as the pattern.
