I wanted to give a nice Christmas gift to a friend who loves the color purple. I also wanted a gift that was relatively easy to make and that I could whip up quickly. The pattern is easy and includes detailed instructions for creating the special border stitch.

My mother taught me how to knit when I was 10 or 11, and my Aunt Viola taught me how to crochet when I was a teenager. I switched from knitting to crocheting full time in my 30s, but started knitting again in the mid-2000's when I discovered Vicky Howell's Knitty Gritty. And while I continue to knit from time to time (and sew), I am a crocheter at heart.
