Crochet Ikea chair cover...

.....only 6 broad stripes to go now.
6 for the seat and 9 for the back with an opening at the bend.
ran out of the darker blue mix base Marble Chunky so I tried a similar but lighter one that RKM had in stock, it works.
 
Although ABARKAN have a sale on. The Marble chunky is only £3.98 for a 200grm ball
So I will be ordering the next few from them.
 
SEAT COVER OPENING
Decided to make the opening at the bend, as I made the chain stich opening of 75 stitches, I thought the first 3 rows would make a great briad.....mmmm another idea to try out later!
6 STRIPES of 12 rows each left to do to finish the cover....can't see me getting them all done today, but I should finish it tomorrow at the latest.
NEXT...
I will make a foot stool cover next I think, in another colourway of the marble, plus plain colours.
 
A CHRISTMAS PRESENT TO PLAY WITH
A kit to make some stamped washer jewellery...I will have some fun with this soon.
 
Hugs to all xx
HAPPY NEW YEAR FOR TOMORROW.
