It is in the latest edition of Simply Crochet and I am making it for my daughter who wants one for Xmas. I had one many years ago whilst a student in bright oranges and Browns along with an afghan coat! It is lovely to be crocheting something like this in nice Aran weight yarn but I have to thank Lucy at Attic24 for pointing me in the right direction for a tutorial on how to do the rib effect collar. When I first read the pattern it put me off but she found a great You Tube tutorial which shows clearly how to do the post stitches which form the rib stitch.
I am also starting a blanket from one of Lucy's patterns on her blog at Attic24 lovely in lovely rich colours.
My sewing has been very Xmas related - lots of decorations on the embroidery machine and some Xmas cards.
I have put it up on my design wall to look at for few days before I finish it off.
I have sent my Santa sack to Gina and it arrived safely so just wait for mine to arrive !
Trying to resist all the " Black Friday" sales and just stick to my Xmas shopping list.
Bye for now
