For the 5th inning, we are breaking up into 2 “teams”. Please be sure to find the correct pattern for your team.
I am really loving how this beauty is turning out. And those of you who are curious, here is a little info on my ATB.
Center Block: Enchanted Garden by Courtney Laub – this paid pattern combines the two most beautiful patterns: Sophie’s Garden by Dedri Uys and Crocodile Flower by Joyce Lewis. My Enchanted Garden was 12 inches (@30 cm) wide. I blocked it after this part but have not blocked since.
Center Block “Plus” part – I added 5 rows of granny stitches (3 dc clusters) for the 4 sides but did not stitch in corners (so 4 independent sides coming out of 4 sides). Then I attached granny squares on the corners. My “Enchanted Garden Plus” center block started out at 16.5 inches (@42 cm) wide.
Yarn: DMC Natura Just Cotton – I really love the feel and look of this yarn but it is a hard yarn to work with. It is just like DMC floss (think cross stitch threads) and splits badly. I am on 3rd skein of white and 2nd on the rest of the colors. I need to order more yarn but I am not sure if I will use this yarn again once this project is over. I am actually thinking of making another one just like this using Stylecraft Special DK or Scheepjes Merino Soft. I think shades of pink or purple may be fun and my daughter would love the shades of orange…
Colors: ibiza, blue layette, blue jeans, star light, azur
Hook: D – 3.25 mm, my favorite size hook (I am a “pencil” holder and love Clover Armour hooks)
Current size: 27.5 inches (@70 cm).
And she is a Team B!
