Hi guys! Hello day 11!
Did you know, that in Australia, there are more people participating in Arts and Crafts, than there are registered for Twitter? How incredible is that! According to ArtFacts There are 1.2 million Australians registered for Twitter, and a colossal 2 million that participate in Arts and Crafts!
If you like facts, ArtFacts is an incredible website, with some amazing facts relating to crafts in Australia.
You will need:
DK/8ply/light worsted weight yarn in minimum of 6 colours.
Yarn Note: I did not start with complete balls. All 6 of my balls were originally 100g balls with a little of each used. They are a mix of Stylecraft Special DK, King Cole Pricewise and Moda Vera Marvel 8ply for my 6 colours. You could choose 6 colours and follow my colour changes, or you could make every line a different colour (excellent way to use scraps) or you could even use some self striping yarn, or a solid colour.
Colour Changes: I change my colours by completing the last yarn over and pull through of the last stitch in the row with the new colour for the next row, so I don't have to join with slip stitches. Of course, this means you'll have to redo that one last stitch each day as you won't know what colour is next, but the finished piece will be much neater this way.
My Colours are
A - Beige
B - Blue
C - Dark Blue
D - Tan
E - Mint/Turquoise
F - Dark Grey
