New October Bakers Dozen Square

Started the new Baker's Dozen Square for October since I am using the other one in a series piece.


Yarn : Exquisite Bamboo . . . I am using the other part of the FibraNatura Yarn that I unspun for Justice's socks. So this has only the bamboo singles in it.
Color: Fiesta
Content: 100% bamboo
Care: Machine wash warm or cold, dry on low

Hook : C / 2.5mm

Pattern: I am using the Crossed Topped Shells stitch from 280 Crochet Shell Patterns.

It's a little slippery to work with, but I think it will look lovely when all is said and done.

Not feeling so hot today, there's some cold stuff going around the office I work in, but next week I want to make Thursdays about getting healthier.


  1. What vivid colors. I give you props... I don't know that I'll ever use 100% bamboo again. I'll be curious to see if in crochet, it grows as badly as it does in stockinette.

  2. Very pretty and bright! I hope you feel better soon!

  3. Very colorful. I think it's really interesting how differently knitting and crochet interact with handpainted yarn.

  4. Hope you are feeling better by now. I have never knitted with a bamboo blend, I do have some in roving to spin up. It also feels a little slippery!
