Hexagonal knitting is twice as nice. Two hexagons are knit in Jasper and Peruvia and then felted. We attached a handle made from knotted leather cording.
Approximately 12" / 30 cm across after felting (18" / 45 cm across before felting)
BERROCO MERCADO (100 grs): 3 hanks #4142 Oro (MC) and 1 hank #4156 Lago (CC)
Note: Original model pictured was made with Berroco Jasper (50 grs), #3810 Copper Silk (MC) and Berroco Peruvia (100 grs), #7143 Aquamarina (CC). To recreate the striping pattern of the original yarn, make stripes using smaller amounts of different colors instead of the 3 hanks of the MC.
