Happy Practice

I’ve been practising the motifs I need to make for the Happypotamus.  it’s been a great way to use up some scrap yarn, so please excuse the colour choices.

African Flower Pentagon:


African Flower Hexagon:


African Flower Heptagon:


I think I’ve pretty much got the hang of these.  There is an octagon to make as well but I don’t think I need to practice it now I have the general technique down.

Next up was the join-as-you-go technique.  Since I had already completed these motifs I had to make something else in order to join.  I decided to do something different and make some polkadots in squares.  I found a great tutorial here.  There are loads of pics in the tutorial so it was really easy to make them.  I used the join-as-you-go tutorial from the Happypotamus pattern.  After 3 frustrating failures it finally clicked!



I have ordered the Stylecraft Special DK Attic24 Colour Pack from Wool Warehouse.  I’m still trying to decide exactly what colour combos I will use and whether to use white or cream or even an entirely different colour as the main background.
