Some crochet inspiration for you to ponder . . . I just love this website:
“The students of Nottingham Trent University were tasked by Marie Wallin to produce a design using our 100% British wool. Naomi Lewis has designed this British Sheep Breeds DK and Chunky.”
Isn’t it just lovely! The pattern is free, but you must register to download. I checked it out, and it is a very easy pattern. A few adjustments I would make though. Instead of it being a pillow cushion, I think it would make bigger, and do a fabulous rug. (I probably wouldn’t let anyone walk on it tho!) Or, even a wall hanging. I also thought, instead of crocheting the base fabric to attach the swirls to, maybe a nice sturdy piece of burlap. Wouldn’t this be a great stash buster?
