On the Hook, 21/11/20

This week (well, 2 weeks really as I didn’t update last week), the Diamonds not Pearls jumper has grown, and I’ve made a bauble.

Here’s the jumper:

Won’t be too long until I reach the bottom and will move on to the sleeves. The texture is lovely:

Yesterday I came across Lilla Björn’s new CAL (crochet-a-long). It’s called ‘Not a Christmas CAL’ 🙂

It’s going to be 4 weeks of mystery festive home decorations patterns. The first pattern uses Brioche Crochet to make a bauble. I’ve never tried Brioche before. I found it a bit fiddly at first but as I got the hang of it it got easier. Here’s my first bauble:

I’ll probably make some more in different colours between finishing up some other projects. I wonder what next week’s pattern will be! There are 3 other techniques that will be used in the future patterns – mosaic, overlay and tapestry, so I’m going to enjoy trying new things!
