I love the effect you got from using two strands!  It makes the coloring seem more "consistent" than a variegated yarn used on its own.  And the colors work well together :3  What size hook did you use?

Thank you!! :heart: I believe I used an I or J hook, but I wouldn't swear to it. ^^; lol It's been over a year since I made it; I just know it was around there somewhere because I was using 2 strands of bulky yarn. ^^:

So pretty, I love the colour combinationBroken Fighting Dome (Kawaii Please)  But gah, so many scales, and so much yarn! My fingers are twinging in sympathy just looking at it!

Thank you! And yea, it was kind of a pain. ^^; Well, since I worked on it in front of the recipient and our friends, they all have a new-found appreciation for my homemade gifts. :D

LOVE the colors. A Red Heart yarn, you say? Hmmm...I may need to investigate this...

Oh, yes. Red Heart Boutique Changes yarn. Six different yarns in one beautiful skein. ;p You should investigate. Though I warn you, they are $10 per skein or thereabouts. ^^;

That's really cool! I've been wanting to do more crochet and this type of thing looks great for getting back in the swing of things. I bet it's nice and warm too, having a double layer of fabric of sorts. Nice work!

It is, and it's kind of heavy, too. ^^; I was actually a little hesitant on starting this b/c I thought it seemed complicated. I was pleasantly surprised at how easy it was once I adjusted to the stitch pattern. :D

Thank you!! :hug:
