On My Hook...

I'm currently making myself a super snuggly snood, I find crochet so therapeutic and wish I had more time to indulge in my hobby.

Here's what's on my hook!


I'm using 'Big Softie' Sirdar yarn in the shade 'buddy' which is a lovely milky pale pink. 


I'm using Nicki Trench's 'Seashell Stitch' pattern from her book 'Cute & Easy Crochet. I have used this pattern several times and it works up quite quickly especially with such chunky yarn and a 10mm hook. It isn't too complicated but requires some concentration, so I would recommend it if you are becoming more confident and want to try something new. 

I have used 2x 50g balls so far and have just ordered some more, expect to see a nice snuggly outfit post with this beauty soon!
