This is a great set of patterns for your first set of crocheted garments, with its super simple granny square technique and fancy flower accents it's perfect for beginners. And for experienced crocheters, this should be a doddle.
The King Cole Riot DK really brings these patterns to a new level, with the colour variegation working great in the round and in stripes. For a non-variegated equivalent, the King Cole Drifter Subtle DK would be a perfect replacement.
Crocheted with 3mm and 4mm crochet hooks.
