Half of dining is with our eyes, so give guests a visual feast before the starter’s up. We’ve gone for powerhouse brights with our napkin rings from issue 85, but you can match your colours to your crockery to make table set co-ords.
Quick, easy, practical and long-lasting, this is a project well worth spending an afternoon on. Once you’ve mastered the pattern, you can extend the central band and apply the hook and loop to a number of projects – such as a curtain tie, bracelet, belt or even a gift bow.
To hook up this fantastic pattern, you’ll need:
La Mia Cottony (100% cotton, 50g/120m)
Fuchsia (P24), Turquoise (P29), Mustard (P31)
A 3mm (US C/2 or D/3) hook
