However, I’d really like a couple of lovely fellow hookers to test it first. It’s a nine round block called ‘Winter Sun’. I’m thinking intermediate level as there are a few front posts, but that said, if you’re an adventurous beginner, I’d say go for it – I’ve found the best way to increase my crochet skills has been to attempt patterns with stitches above my current capability, and learn as I go! I’m a huge fan of standing stitches, but I’ve also included alternative chain starts.
This PDF pattern includes a list of stitches used (US teminology), a couple of additional notes, and – what I consider to be, but I’m hoping you’ll correct me if I’m wrong! – clear and detailed instructions including stitch counts for every round (because I love patterns that have those!).
Pending positive feedback / minor revisions, I’ll then make the pattern available here as a free PDF download, which will be closely followed by a pattern for yesterday’s ‘Winter in the Glen‘ square.
If you’d be at all interested in testing this pattern for me, please do get in touch. I will respond swiftly to any questions and would appreciate your feedback very much 🙂
