So until I made this Bows and Arrows stole for the Ongoing Stuff I Can Make swap, I had only completed a scarf, a hat, and a sock. I am so proud I finished this I wanted to share it here too.
The pattern is here: http://bythehook.blogdrive.com/archive/166.html
and I used Lion Brand microspun in black. I didn't use as much as the pattern called for, although the wrap did measure a tad shorter than the pattern said when it was done. I found the pattern really easy to follow, so much so that after the first completion of it I didn't need to look anymore.
So, if you are a pretty new crocheter, get out there and tackle something that seems crazy! Without the swap I wouldn't have tried anything like this, and now I am happy I did it.
