Japanese Table Set
For Gin's birthday I also made a little table set from a Japanese charted pattern. You can find the wonderful pattern here and if you are on Ravelry the pattern page is here.
I used Aunt Lydia's Size 3 Fashion Crochet Thread and a size 2 steel crochet hook (2.2mm).
Instead of doing the pieces in all one color, I thought it would be cute to do the inside shape a different color. I think it nicely emphasized the pretty flower shape in the center.
It was a really quick and easy pattern which could be easily altered by joining more of the flower pieces together. And again, I can't say how much I LOVE charted patterns.
