Oh man, did I ever fall in love with this when I found it on Ravelry! It was the topped favorited pattern on there in 2015 and it was so eye-catching I had to check it out. I wrote about my yarn choices here and I worked furiously on this until I was finally finished. I toted it around EVERYWHERE. Once I was finished I actually missed the extra weight and always felt like I was forgetting something.
This pattern is by Dedri Uys at Look at What I Made. It is amazing and perfect in every way. It is free! It has a million pictures to show you what is going on! It teaches you everything you need to know about crochet! I really liked the standing stitch start for each round.
Final verdict: I could go on and on… this was an amazing experience for me and I love the finished product so much!!!!
