Secret Garden Crochet Pattern – WIP

Last week I told you about this gorgeous new yarn that had landed on my doorstep, and now I want to share a progress report with you.

I’m making a new stool cover to be able to interchange with my Egyptian Star Flower Stool cover and it’s really coming to life in just the way that I imagined.  The katran inspiration was right on the money!

So, do learn from a mistake that I made here: the stool was almost finished when I realised that I made it way too big, so had to frog it.  So, no matter how much I love the yarn, it’s not made for frogging.  It’s definitely not a yarn you can just rip out, you have to be careful and take it slow, otherwise you’ll destroy it.

Having said that, the effort is worth it.  Doesn’t it make a beautiful ball?

So I have the final amounts ready, you’ll need three balls of Secret Garden in your favourite colourway.

Get the yarn from  Wool Warehouse for £4.39 (€5.39) per ball with global shipping.

In North America, Love Knitting/Crochet stocks it for $5.50 USD per ball.

In the Benelux, go to any one of the great Scheepjes stockists, and if you’re looking for a lovely day out head to Sparkelz-Creatief in Zuidhoorn, just outside Groningen.

Stay tuned for the big reveal next week!
