Redheart Octagone n Squares throw »
InstructionsThe reason mine is called Octa-gone wrong. Is I did not count the bobbles in the center and ended with 7 sides not 8. Made it a bit of a challenge to get it to lie flat and all the pieces fit. In the end I think I like it better than the original pattern.
Type of item: Home Decor
Style: Cute, Funky, Whimsical, Mod
A mixture of Caron Simply soft and Redheart..
What was your inspiration?
The Crochet craft club with Mikey Smalley, it was part of his Octagon n squares challenge. I just loved all the posts that was being made showing these fabulous throws and knew I just had to try one.
What are you most proud of?
That I didn't give up. Even though I didn't pay attention to the pattern and made a huge mistake, I made that mistake work for me.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Read, reread, count and recount.
