Davi


I am very excited about the Crochet by Numbers portrait I just completed. I got the free pattern from Todd A Paschall back in July but did not get to start the piece until after the UFOlympics. I am very pleased I was able to complete it before Christmas dinner, which is the next time I will be seeing Davi. This photo was one of the proofs she sent me when she graduated from Southern Univ. in May.

This is crazy dope! Am I dating myself? Whatever. I love it and printed out the crochet by numbers instructions last week. How long did this take?

Bev Love said...

NikkiJ,
I don't know how long it took because I always work on several projects at one time. It is 125 rows by 105 columns, I started in Sept. finished mid Nov. Crochet is still faster than knitting for me, and I made two pairs of socks and a shawl while working on it. You can try the free sample pattern and time yourself.
