Cute Overload!

I’ve been doing a lot of crocheting lately.  After making the broomstick cowl I knew I wanted to do more.  It’s such an interesting stitch.  So I made a couple of cuffs for myself, and after I do a couple more for practise, I will probably stock some in the shop.

blog2012.02.02 ph05I used some really soft grey/white baby yarn for this one.  I made it 12 stitches wide with each broomstick stitch 3 stitches wide.  I used some plastic grey buttons that matched.

blog2012.02.02 ph01For this cuff my yarn was Bernat’s Mosaic, and it was more chunky.  I still did 12 stitches across, but this time did 4 stitches per broomstick.  The changing colours only managed to do one of the colours with a wee bit of the orange.  But if I started right at the start of a colour change I bet I can make the cuff in only one colour.  I was hoping for a multicolour cuff, but should have used aquick change varigated yarn instead.

The next few that I make will be shorter, probably closer to 6 inches or 6.25 inches long as they stretch quite a bit with wear.  The grey one is not at all tight anymore, and is kindof too loose now.  I’ll give it a bit of a soak to see if I can tighten it up again.  Otherwise I’ll have to pass it on to someone with thicker wrists than me.
