Karoo Vintage MAL

On I trundle with the Karoo. What a challenge and an adventure.

Part 6 is complete

I’m now halfway through Part 7 and then there is an edge.

Karoo Vintage Mal, Jen Tyler

These colours felt strange in the middle of a heatwave a few months ago, but I’m so enjoying working with them now.

Yesterday afternoon, I was sitting in the Park whilst my grandchildren played with their friends after school, the autumn leaves were falling around me, my blanket on my lap whilst I worked on it, and the warm October sun on my face. That to me is a slice of heaven right there!

The design is by Jen Tyler of Hooks n Tales. Stylecraft Special DK and a 4.5mm hook.

Pattern on Ravelry.

You can find the list of colours on my Ravelry Page.

This pattern is not for the faint-hearted! and there are literally 100s of ends to sew in, but I do really like the result.

I’d like to make this pattern again in different colours, but I’m not sure when I will be ready to dedicate so much time and attention to such a big project again.

It is very demanding!

Whist sewing in all those ends at home in the evenings, I listen to the radio – this fabulous music programme keeps me company – available on iPlayer for the next 29 days.
