Square One


Square? Check.

12 inches? Check.

Suitable for a man? I would think so.

Exactly as pattern described? That would be boring. (Right?)

Challenges overcome: hook one size smaller than pattern called for, and the green yarn is actually DK weight. Plus I ran out of cream. (The danger of using scraps.) Would you have known it wasn't intentional, if I didn't tell you that? Okay, even if you did, it still looks nice, right? (If you say "no", I'm going to tell you not to look a gift horse in the mouth. Especially since this "horse" doesn't need food or housing.)

Well, *I* happen to like it very much. Nice colour, nice pattern, yes, nice for a man as well. Speaking of pattern, can you share the source? :)

The basic pattern is "Woven Arrowheads" from the "Chain Reaction Afghan Project" ebook. This square is in my Ravelry projects.

Oh, and thanks! :)

Cool!! I already downloaded that e-book :)

I wouldn't have guessed that you ran out of yarn and substituted or improvised. That combo is great --- go you!
