This will be the second of many updates on the
Rainy Day Chair-and-a-Half.
The updates will likely span over a long time since this
is the biggest crochet project ever. ;-)
What am I doing you wonder?
Well, get a load of this...
I hope to recover the entire Rainy Day Chair-and-a Half in
Here's the "BEFORE" of the free rainy-day chair:
So far, just the back pillow will take 48 squares!
Crochet Details and Yarn:
The first five rows are all different combinations of color,
the sixth row and joining row is white.
In other words...
after the first two rows that form a circle, there are
four granny rows with the last one in white on all squares,
then they are joined with the join-as-you-go procedure in white, as well.
I'm using a "G" (4.25 mm) hook
and Stylecraft Special DK yarn,
purchased via www.Deramores.com.
This is pretty much a stash-buster with more white yarn on it's way.
I think the colors that I used are:
"Storm Blue" and "Duck Egg" arrived after I finished the 48 squares for the back cushion,
they are new colors to the Stylecraft Special DK line,
and I will incorporate them into the next set of squares.
Also, "Bottle" was not added until after these 48 squares.
I thought about using more "Denim" and/or "Duck Egg" colored yarn,
since the chair is pretty close to those colors,
and I'm still thinking about it...maybe on the seat cushion?
I don't know what to do, I'm liking the lightness of the white.
What do you think?
