The Woolly Brew in Pittenweem , Fife

Northmoor Lock has a shallow triangle shape. It starts at one end and increases up to the centre point (half way through your ball of yarn) then decreases back down… (abit like the Baktus knitted scarf).

I crocheted ours in Vivacious 4ply, in new shade Dove Stone.

This was a challenge… as only the 4th item I’ve ever crocheted.

So it took a few attempts to get the increasing even and then the decreasing too.

I first attempted it in a Zauberball but given my novice crochet status the yarn was bit too woolly.

The Vivacious on the other hand was smooth and shiny! And it was much easier to see where I needed to stick my hook.

This was very quick to make too (despite the half dozen false starts). And I would highly recommend it as a next step beginner pattern - you only use one stitch and you can practice your increasing and decreasing.

You do need to get it relatively even so the increasing matches the decreasing (roughly!) but it’s easy to spot and rip out any overly wonky bits.

Like I did… frequently.
