I saw these floating around, and I was like, you know what, Kermit-colored yarn? Lets do this.
Was not actually delicious.
I'm a hand model.
So, I basically just chained 6, joined with a slip stitch, then half-double crocheted in the round until the link was around 8 inches long. Then I slip-stitched it together, and proceeded to do the same with about ten or eleven of those guys. I used worsted weight silk/wool blend + an H hook.
A quick project. Easy peasy. And really dynamic looking. My coworkers enjoyed it and I got a bunch of compliments on it at the weirdo head shop by work. (No, I did not buy a bong.)
