CROCHET MOSS ST. STRIPED BOLSTER....

I had a bolster waiting for a cover too, felt the striped Moss stitch would be perfect for the job with spiral ends.
 
Yarn and Hook
I used James C Brett Marble chunky from begining to end and a 5mm hook.
Spiral ends bit random an increase when I thought it needed it.
 
Moss Stitch Striped body....
 
The broad stripes changed every 12 rows, 6 of marble chunky and alternate 6 x 2 strands of turquoise, teal and lime, repeat each colour twice.
 
The spiral ends matching the two outer stripes of turquoise and lime
Decided  I wanted a clean line so stitched it onto the bolster, one spiral end is stitched all the way around so reasonably easy to remove and wash
 
I will try again later but I am having problems uploading pictures for now.
still having problems so if you want to see more pictures try this link..
