Samples are a good way to use up scrap yarn as well as to practice certain patterns before making it into a project.
After trying a few lace crochet samples, I finally graduated from making crochet samples to actually making things. But first the lace. This lilac one is Marielle lace which would be ideal for an airy scarf.
The Picot Trellis lace is a more traditional pattern made with cotton thread instead of yarn. This was challenging from the standpoint of using a much smaller hook which my joints weren’t really happy about.
The Star stitch was the basis of making a crochet hook case. You can clearly see on one side the holes in the stars.
Unfortunately, my new ergonomic hooks didn’t fit. But it does make a nice roll or it can be folded over to lay flat.
