It has been a few weeks since I announced that I would be participating in the Tunisian crochet along Discover the Seasons designed by Marjolein Kooiman. The CAL started beginning of December and I thought to show you my progress.
Yarn used so far
I am using Scheepjes Stardust in 4 subtle shades for this project, a mix fiber yarn containing mohair, wool, premium acrylic and a splash of metallic polyester which gives the yarn a subtle glitter. Stardust is available from Deramores, Wool Warehouse or your Scheepjes Stockist.
I am using the Stardust with a 5mm and at this point I have used about half a ball of each color. I must admit that my yarn usage is higher than needed because I have cut out a few squares a few times. The yarn contains mohair and frogging is just about impossible.
How is it going so far?
We are at week 7 of the CAL now and so far so good, the pace is high but I am managing to keep up. We have made 24 squares with various sizes, colors and patterns. There are two prominent squares that immediately catch your eye, one with a tulip and one with a butterfly. Making these patterns is not so much hard, but it is fiddly and you need to follow the chart carefully.
The written patterns are available in English and Dutch and are released each week in the Discover the Seasons Facebook group. There have been some bugs in the patterns, but the designer has been quick to make corrections and make an updated pattern available.
I have made a few beginner mistakes, and I notice as the CAL proceeds that my stitches and joins are becoming more even. I think that after this is finished I will have the hang of Tunisian Crochet!
I will show you another update when the project is a bit further along again.
