  1. with your first colour yarn make a magic loop.
  2. 10 hdc into magic loop
  3. change colour , 2 hdc into each stitch 
  4. change colour . 2 hdc into next stitch and 1 hdc into stitch repeat around
  5. change colour . 2 hdc into next stitch and 1 hdc into next 2 stitches repeat around

Mermaids hair jumper

I was uploading some photos from last year when i saw my mermaids hair jumper and thought hey I haven't put  this on my blog !
Mermaids hair was an expression i saw used on a facebook group describing the yarn i used.

Its RICO CREATIVE REFLECTION  yarn in candy. I love this yarn because as well as being sparkly and very yummy its very long ! The yardage is great and I made the jumper with 4 ball s !!!



not the best knitting lol I know !

I'm uploading some photos of our walk on the Offas Dyke these were taken last autumn.
