Tides of Change
This is my gift to the crochet community for all of the support and encouragement I have received in my first year of crochet design. Thank you.
This pattern was designed using RHSS yarn and a K hook. The hook size that is recommended on a yarn ball band is going to be too small for this design. You must use a large hook for your yarn weight or your project will not lay flat and it will have very severe puckering.
Trying to use the smallest hook size possible is the wrong way to go with this design. It will not lay flat.
