A Splash of colour a C2C in Aldi yarn.....

Happy New Year to everyone.....little late but busy yet again
And a new year fitness plan taking a couple of hours a day, so something has to give.
A splash of colour in a rather bright C2C small throw
Great yarn buy from Aldi. I've used an 8mm hook and about 100g has made a piece about 18" and is 16 rows

Although the original straight version can be found in a Weldons Company pattern book
from the late 1800's, the only difference really is the use of sc (dc actually because it's an English pattern book) instead of a sl st
And it's called Crazy Stitch and they have made a hooded shawl with it
Good old Weldonsworked on the straight it's still called crazy stitch today.

This shawl has been well used in the last few days too, made in 2012 nothing beats a granny shell shawl for a splash of colour and warm shoulders.
Thanks for asking link to the pattern below 


  1. Hi Suz, hop over and see the diagonal crochet project I just did.. posted yesterday. Did you know Vanessa Cabban? I did it in her honor. ((hugs)), Teresa :-) Love your two projects.

    1. Hi Teresa yes I did know about Vanessa, so very sad, a talent lost.
      Thanks I've got several c2c and crazy projects on the go Ben playing with the stitch over the last couple of months, some finished and some wip.

  2. Happy New Year Sue.
