Here is a circle throw I made for my IYP partner.  The pattern can be found in The Story of Homespun book, Leisure Arts #4599 by Lionbrand and Leisure Arts.  I found it a fun, easy pattern that works up quickly (I'm picturing next year's Xmas presents Wink).

circle goodness


so perhaps you can see the size

Need something crocheted?  I'll swap amis, afghans, shawls or whatever for a box of yarn.  Smiley

This is so much more stunning in person.  Pictures just can't begin do it justice.  I'm actually curled up in it right now!!!  (As I have been every moment I've been home since it arrived....  I've even been sleeping with it.)  What's funny is that I would never have paired some of these colors on my own, but they are so perfect together, and look so nice in my living room, against our mustard sofa and chair.  This is really the nicest thing anyone has ever made me!!!

It does not due to dwell on dreams and forget to craft.

Do you end up doing a lot of counting, or do you just sort of get the rhythm of this one after a while?

It's beautiful!

if you pay attention to where the increases are, then counting is not as cumbersome
