Another book variation and the lovely Wendy Cotton Silk..

Don't feel you always need to complete a motif to make a project work...this one is The Star coaster pattern with variations from page 70 Granny Squares Book 1

The first 2 round of the pattern.......

The only difference is i've done my favourite finger wrap for the first round and 12sc into the wrap then the second round is the same.....finish here and join as you go makes for another option

Here is another variation
with a 2finger wrap...The yellow middles are in a linen yarn and the 2nd rounds are all in the Wendy Supreme Cotton and Silk.

Be creative ands the book patterns as a base for your creativity

Loving the Wendy Supreme Cotton silk DK

IMPORTANT NOTE: Just incase anyone new is taking a peek on my blog I use US Terms, 
but the book is written in UK Terms

Another variation of a pattern from my Book 1 Granny Squares
in Wendy Supreme 4mm hook
I've changed the centre ring for a 2 finger 5wrap, instead of a circle and dc, this means the round 3 changes to 1dc in each st, not 2dc in 1st,
 This method of joining still needs a small fill-in as the holes are a little big 

A huge THANK from this week Suz Place is now sponsored by  

Thomas B Ramsden Yarns. 
click link above to see the 9 colours of the Supreme Cotton silk 

I will over the coming months, be sampling all their lovely yarns and each month there will be a free pattern for everyone to use.

It might be a new rug, a lacy wrap, a scarf or hat, a summer top or a winter throw to snuggle into.

And a huge Thank You to 
LOREMAR YARNS  click link to visit shop
who supplied the first Wendy Cotton Silk I have used and also the yarn along with being very supportive with the Chunky Monkey

As you might have guessed the first yarn I am sampling for Wendy yarns is the Supreme Cotton Silk yarn so watch this space. 

I already have about 10 sample pieces and I'm trying hard to decide on which one I use to make a 
cute strappy summer top.....Lets hope we get the sun to go with it

Happy Hooking
