I made this using a pattern from Ravelry called Shawl Ministry Pins by Ina Isobe but with a few minor adjustments.


Instead of yarn I've used something which i think might be a thick Embroidery floss - it is white but with a lovely shine to it.  This is a Christmas present for my boyfriend's aunt who seems to very much like brooches. I felt that changing the leftover yarn into a ball made it a little neater. I tried several different methods before i figured out how to make it into the right shape - in the end i used a circle of card at the centre which gave the yarn something to grip to.

I hope she likes it!

What did you make the hook from?

The knitting needles are tooth picks with one of the pointy ends cut off and wooden beads pushed on the end.
