Notes

After knitting Annis I was really quite pleased with the crescent shape, and thought it’d be nice to take that and add a border rather than doing a straight scarf or a triangular shawl. So, I cast on 241 stitches and just did a short-row crescent shape, then followed the second last and last charts from echo flowers, i think it’s 20 repeats, and I am absolutely delighted. I can’t believe that pattern is available for free!

I did 5 stitch nupps, and they came out nice and meaty :) The 3-into-9 stitches were quite tricky with the worsted and i had to resort to a crochet hook to pull the last couple through!
