My newest pattern, "Glenda," is probably one of my favorites. I wasn't sure how it would all work out, but it came together very nicely.
This pattern is 28 rounds and 12-inches in diameter.
This is the first time I've ever used Scheepjes brand. They have a wonderful line of size 10 thread called Maxi Sugar Rush that has an enormous color selection. Each ball contains 280m/306y of thread--and the price is pretty reasonable depending on where you purchase. I purchased through Deramores.com during a 'free shipping' special they had. They even have a mini line of crochet thread containing 140m/153y in each ball called Maxi Bonbon.
For this pattern, I used between 200-250 yards with a 2.00mm hook. I've decided to use a larger hook because my crocheting has gotten too tight. I was a bit nervous going up a size, but I'm very pleased with the results. And I even bought an ergonomic hook holder because my 2.00mm hook is bare.
You can find this pattern on my patterns page.
