just a rectangle

Sometimes I get very overwhelmed with complicated looking patterns.

It almost feels like I need a masters degree in reading a knitting or crochet pattern.

That is what I was thinking while I tried, for the 7th time , to make the Dotted Rays Shawl , designed by Stephen West. I really want to knit this shawl but I seem to miss some stitches,  slip too many stitches or make too many stitches. It felt like I didn’t know how to knit anymore, so to restore some faith in myself again, I knitted something easy…

a rectangle, and this is what I did with it….

This project will boost your confidence in your knitting skills and is the perfect present for a special little human.

I loved knitting with Moya cotton yarn and the pom pom was made with 100% wool I found in my stash.

( I gave the cookie monster hat to my little nephew Liam)

 

Have a great week and be kind to yourself !
