Let me back up just a bit. Last fall I gave this pattern to each of the hookers. It was a free pattern from a back issue of ATHA magazine ... I said 'make this your own'! I didn't show them the article it came from or the picture in the magazine -- I just wanted to see what they would all came up with. It's relatively small, about 12"x16".
Some of these women have been hooking for 20+ years and some only two or three years.
So here's mine. I purposely decided to make mine very close to the magazine picture in colors and in following the pattern, but I left out the 'dots' in the middle.
Here's how the other hookers interpreted this pattern! AND I LOVE IT!
Hopefully I can get this all sent in to the ATHA magazine, along with our story, and they'll want to share it with their readership. It was fun. And rest assured, everyone got a participation award!
More later ...
