The first part of Sophie’s Universe is finished. It wasn’t difficult at all and it looks great. The ByClaire soft mix yarn is fine for crocheting, I only have to be careful that it’s not splitting. So I was ready to start part 2 of the pattern. I’m still happy with the colors that I’ve chosen and for this part 3 more colors will be introduced.
The colors that I used for this part are:
Toer 9: 031 Olive
Toer 10: 035 Salmon
Toer 11: 005 Vintage Pink
Toer 12: 005 Vintage Pink
Toer 13: 005 Vintage Pink
Toer 14: 002 Ivory
Toer 15: 002 Ivory
Round 9 and 10 from Sophie’s Universe are just like it is written in the book.
At round 11 you have a choice, if you want to give the Petals a little bit more debth or not. You’re doing this by crocheting in the back loops. For me this seems nice, so I decided to do so.
With round 12 I’m using the same color (Vintage Pink), with using that color again I had the possibility to crochet the loose end from the last round at the same time. Hihi one loose end less to get rid of at the end of part 2 ;-).
Round 13 was a little trouble for me. I tought that in the Dutch translation was written make a fourdouble crochet. But it seems like I had to make 4 double crochets. Luckily I saw on the pictures that it looked completely different than my work, so quickly changed my mistakes. Now it’s oke.
Also in round 14 I want to use the option to give some depth to my work, so here I also choose to work in the back loops. These are already the last two rounds for part two of Sophie’s Universe. I really like the pattern, it’s becoming an addiction. And with the good explanation and photo’s in the book and the Dutch translation it’s not difficult at all.
The amount of yarn that I used until now is this:
