Pattern: Celestine Crochet ball by Betsy Myles - a free pattern, yay! A few people complain on Ravelry that this is a bit of a confusing pattern, or not well written. I think it's written fine - you start off with a chain loop and steadily decrease to the point, then add another point building on the last one (got to love a join-as-you-go project!), but I did have trouble starting off each new point, more because I kept forgetting how I got it started the last time. I think I managed to get it right after I'd made about 8 or 9 of the points! Oh dear!
|Foundation row for new point|
Time: 20 May 2011 - 27 May 2011 - a week, not bad! I think it took me around an hour for each point, with all the unpulling every time I started a new point and forgot how to join the darn thing so it didn't twist and was facing the right direction!
There's also a small error in the pattern when starting the 11th point, you only do 7 chain, the rest are all crochet into previous points.
