I’ve got an enormous soft spot for a felting wool made by Adriafil called Crea (although my favourite colour, which I only bought one ball of, is discontinued!) and when in need of a quick crochet hit the other weekend, I made this pot to hold my hooks and bits and bobs. It took half a ball and about an hour and I rather love it. I must make some more.
It’s very simple rounds of double crochet (UK) joined in a circle at the back and then with a single chain stitch at the start of each round to stop it being a spiral (a trick I learned with my MyBoshi hats and wish I had learned earlier). I just adore the way the colours work in this one, it reminds me of a sun soaked wall in a country garden, all lupins and delphiniums and earth and sunlight glare tangled with ivy. It’s work on a 5.5mm hook.
My only mistake was not to make it fit tighter; next time I will make the original circle smaller and more snug. I adore the texture though. It’s sitting around a £1 wire pen pot from The Range, making it a craft for well under £5 and quick too.
