intended for having fun

I have made a small video to show how to make a twisted crochet edge on a small coaster. The pattern is EZ´s Pi. You can use an ordinary crochet hook or a double-end crochet hook.

The wool has a little story.                        
A friend of mine had visited our local thrift shop and noticed a carrier bag full of yarn. I got off to make a good bargain.
The very same evening I met another friend who told me that it was actually her yarn. She had bought it on a trip to the Faroe Islands 25 years ago to make a genuine Faroese sweater for her husband.
However, the yarn had been hibernating under her bed until she decided to give it away for charity.
I knitted the French Market Bag straight away, and felt it in my washing machine. The market bag was huge and nearly killed it. But it is gorgeous.

  6. Thank you for your video. I have seen this edging on a shawl recently and could not figure out how to do it. My daughter sat on my lap and counted with you the whole time. I also love the story of your yarn - thank for sharing it. Serendipity is a lovely thing.

  7. How funny to read about your Faroe yarn. I bought some yarn too 40 yars ago, and I have just used the last bit of it.
