Here is one of the projects I have been working on. I was searching around the other week for something to make for a friend for her birthday, and just couldn't find the right thing, until I found this. It was something nice to do, using double strand and a small 1.75mm crochet hook rather then the big 5.00mms that I have been using and all dc over a wooden bead. Either a necklace, tie it tight for a braclet or hang it as an ornament. Simple yet effective.
I was pleasantly surprised how well it turned out. Think one must be added to my growing 'to-do' list, for myself.
