Last year I visited my local yarn store and purchased a skein of Araucania Botany Lace and started to crochet a complex cowl. I got quite a way through the pattern but it was intricate and was taking forever. To be honest I didn’t really like the pattern that much considering the time it was taking to complete. I frogged it. Got the yarn in a big knot and had to take a pair of scissors to it then knot it together as I made the yarn cake.
I decided I wanted to have a go at knitting something but something simple. I search Ravelry and came up with Hitchhiker. I’d seen this pattern before and came straight back to it again.
This is my progress after a week:
Up to 10 spikes. For me, this is good progress!
