The hook and the needles.

Pattern: Knit and crochet top, improvised. Due to the colour and proximity to the holiday season I’m calling it Holly.
Yarn: Lily Sugar ‘n’ Cream worsted-weight cotton, 220g

I rarely have the patience to knit or crochet for myself, but the mental puzzle of constructing the image in my head and combining the two crafts, along with the hefty gauge (4 stitches to the inch for the body) made for a surprisingly quick and compulsive project for the upcoming summer. I’ll tinker with the design and consider writing up instructions if anyone’s interested.
Hope you’ve had a great weekend!
