Over the weekend there were 2 questions on my Facebook group.
1: WHAT YARN WOULD YOU TAKE ON HOLIDAY AS A HOLIDAY PROJECT?
2: HAVE I GOT A RULE OF 12 SOLID JOIN?
Im combining the 2 answers together as an answer with an update on a very old pattern.
Random dyed yarn....lots of colours so you can make something with getting bored with the same colour. Hot? then use cotton yarns less sticky to work with than wool or acrylic.
And yes i have a basic solid join for the rule of 12..here is a basic pattern in a random/space dyed yarn for you to use...
SOLID JOIN RULE OF 12 PATTERN
Aran 5mm hook
DK 4mm hook
RANDOM DYED YARN...perfect for a holiday project just one or two balls of yarn needed plus a joining col.RANDOM DYED YARN....All the circles will be different and will make a lovely blanket
Finger wrap of 4 wraps.
ROUND 1: [ch2 counts as first dc], 12dc into circle wrap, sl st to complete [12dc]
ROUND 2: [ch2 counts as first dc] 2dc in each st, sl st to complete. [24dc]
ROUND 3: [ch2 counts as first dc], 2dc in first st, 1dc in next st, repeat, sl st to complete. [36dc]
ROUND 4: Change to back ground col. [ch2 counts as first dc], 2dc in first st, 1dc in next 2sts, repeat, sl st, to complete. [48dc]
ROUND 5: cont. in back ground col. ch3, 1tr, into first st, ch3, 2tr, into same st, 1tr, in next st, 1dc in next 2 sts, 1hdc, in next 5sts, 1dc in next 2 sts, 1tr, in next st, 2tr, ch3, 2tr, as next corner, repeat for all sides, sl st to complete.
Join as you go on round 5, using a sl st, after each st to join to the previous square, and replacing the middle ch st, in the corners with a sl st, to join together.
