Round crochet doilies are pretty, and rather feminine, I think. So I wanted to make something more gender neutral, and decided to try a hexagon carpet. The pattern is from the fantastic Virkkuri book.
The tricot yarn is exactly the same as for the rectangle carpet I did some time ago, and those photos present the colour much better. It’s a dark, smoky grey. The rim is light grey. Sorry for the strangely lighted photos!
Overall size is 16 rows of double crochet. At its widest, the diameter is 64 cm. I put the small baskets here only for perspective.
Now off towards the weekend and making other crochet projects! I’m currently working on a hand bag, summer top, shrug and something completely different: a cover for an exercise ball.
♦ In the meantime: I like these female tribute bands. My favourite (based on the name only) is AC/DShe. Brilliant!
♥ Song of the day: Anssi Kela, Maitohapoilla (the sounds of the new album of this Finnish artist is like a cozy trip to my early teenage years)
