New Colourway

Mere Curiosity

I have spent the last days with translating the Mere Curiosity pattern into German. Oh dear! Since German is my mother tongue I actually thought this was a good idea. Well … I hadn’t considered how long it had been since I had worked with a German pattern! In some places it was really difficult for me to find the right terms. I hope I have done it well! Any feedback is welcome!

However … To check the German instructions I made a new square. Originally I had planned to use four colours. After 10 rounds it looked too much like 70s for me, so I decided to add another colour. So now there is a new colourway available using 5 colours!

I used yarn from my stash, the brands are a bit mixed.

Schachenmayr Catania
# 206 – Honig
# 254 – Taupe
#+392 – Lime

    Scheepjes Catona
    # 520 – Lavender

    Uschi Wolle Superglanz
    # 63 – ?

    Uschi Wolle is a German brand and unfortunately I only have the colour number and no name. I’d call it ‘Lachs’ which means ‘salmon’ in English. It is a little bit lighter than # 427 Scampi from Catania.

    If you are interested you can download the new colour chart here.

    Have a nice weekend

    Mere Curiosity is live

    Phew, I finally managed to set up the Ravelry store and Mere Curiosity is uploaded! I am really excited!

    The pattern is now available here.
    As already mentioned, we will donate the proceeds for the Ukraine aid to Unicef.

    You will find some more details about the Mere Curiosity Square either on Ravelry or in my previous post.

    Although all special stitches used are explained in the pattern: if you are not familiar with some stitches or e.g. the technique of working in the 3rd loop, have a look at the ‘Good to know’ section. I have put together some explanations there in the last few days.

    Have fun crocheting Mere Curiosity!
