Yesterday Melissa at vuchickens asked how long it takes me to make a newsboy. I didn’t know then, but I do now.
I made this last night, using two strands of dk acrylic and a 5.00mm hook. The pattern is the one I always use (newsboy pattern), and I did it in the smallest size of the three given. I made sure to begin just as my favourite soapie was starting so I would be less distracted.
It’s a bit tight on me but it fits Carol perfectly.
Excluding the time I spent weaving in the ends and sewing on a button, it took me 65 minutes. I was quite impressed with myself. I estimate that the medium and large sizes would take about 10 to 15 minutes longer. (I’d like to point out that I don’t usually try and work so fast, I prefer to get into the rythym of crocheting and enjoy the sense of calm it brings — I had to hose down the hook afterwards, it was smouldering!!!)
Back soon x
