The colours are not as dark as this photo shows.
It took just four evenings to crochet and I varied the stitches to make it more interesting.. so it has a twisted double and twisted treble stitches as well as treble 'V' shapes, single and double in the different rows.
The colours are to go with my new browns, fawns, mustard and cream clothes that I bought as I had dropped a dress size! It has been a struggle to lose those 15pounds and I am carrying on to lose some more!
If anyone else has struggled to lose weight you will know it is hard work!
