Or a Battle of Will.
There is NO reason this project should have taken me this long.
When I ran out of yarn for my C2C, I decided to raid my stash and make my daughter this cute Colour Block Poncho from Inside Crochet Issue 65.
As I was crocheting along, it started to become ridiculously ruffled.
Oooooo, yes, I was using the wrong hook size for my yarn weight.
So, I frogged back to the cowl and started again with the correct size hook.
Still ridiculously ruffled.
Color me confused.
I read, reread, reread again the pattern. It still doesn’t make sense to me.
So I frogged again.
This time, on Round 4, I did 3 DC into the middle DC of the Round 3. This is probably EXACTLY what the pattern says to do. However, when I did what the pattern said (*miss 1 st, 3DC in next st*, repeat **) it did not work for me and never looked like the picture. I just don’t think my brain was getting this very simple pattern.
This very simple project (which should have taken a few hours) took me days upon days upon days. I just couldn’t give up.
So, here is my very HARD EARNED poncho!!
