Over the weekend I found a bit of time for some creative crochet, just something for fun, working with colour and pattern, it felt really good. I was trying to come up with a bit of a harlequin pattern that didn't involve sewing pieces together, I couldn't find a pattern online, so had a bit of a play myself.
Often I just think about these type of things, and never get around to trying out ideas, but this time I got out the hook and wool and a pencil and paper and had a go. I know it's not all that original and I'm sure it has been done heaps of times, but it is satisfying working out a solution to a problem on your own, even if you get the same answer as everyone else!
I am making a few little colour swatches of some new yarn in my shop (more on that another day) there are lovely vivid colours and I want to try out some different combos, I think this harlequin pattern is a nice way to play with colour.
I an really enjoying seeing how each colour looks as part of this pattern, I think a full blown harlequin blanket might be somewhere in my crafty future! If only there were a few more hours in the day......
What did you get up to on the weekend, anything fun? Crafty?
Do you like harlequin patterns too?
