loopy granny

———

Recently I bought some new yarn from the commodities market here in Shanghai.

 I wanted to try it out on a small project to see if I would like to use it more often.

 I thought a cushion might be a good idea.

I am  really pleased with the result even though I don’t usually use black in my work.

Its just a few small granny squares put together, but I am so in love with my loopy edging.

I have seen this edging in books before but I’ve never tried it because the pattern looked too fiddly.

 I decided to try a variation on the idea and I am so happy with the way it turned out.

I can see lots of uses for this stitch and I think it adds a little glamour to the humble granny.
