This is the start…and it wasn't a roaring success. After the first row, the instructions were a tad muddy. It said to "crochet left" which I can't do. After several rounds I finally figured out it meant to slip stitch a couple of stitches to the left and then turn your work. Seemed to leave all that out.
SO - the pattern wasn't followed - and part of that wasn't the pattern's fault. It was my mind wandering.
I improvised for a few rows trying to figure how to get back to the original pattern.
It took about four or five rounds (not rows by the time I finished the first go round) to get them to a place where I could continue in pattern.
None of these are "in pattern"!!! The two rounds I finished are not photographed. Those photos will be posted when I have more finished. It is to be 18" wide so I have quite a ways to go!
This pattern is found in the magazine Interweave Crochet Accessories 2014. The pattern is by Hannah Cuviello.
