Is it, MissFee?!
I was so taken with this pattern when I got the Spring 2009 edition of Interweave Crochet. And now I am going to make it!
I've done a couple of swatches with some Rainbow Wools 8ply cotton leftovers, kindly provided to me by Jody. Check it out - crochet cables! (ignore the bit below the hook on the yellow swatch, I mucked up the pattern there!)
I've never done front or back post crochet before, let alone crochet cables - I'm glad I practised, it takes some getting used to, I can tell you, especially doing 3 front post double trebles crossed behind 3 front post double trebles.
This cotton is interesting to use - it's a crepe construction cotton, quite soft. I think the crepey-ness of it stops it from being splitty as some cottons are. Now, just to chose a colour...I'm thinking red (but of course!) - but am also considering one of the blues or greens, or possibly the orange...what do you think?
