A Kale Square for a Carrots Swap

Last week, I told you about the Carrots Swap that I joined over on Ravelry.  Today, I wanted to share with you the second square that I’m making – the Kale Square.

It’s a beautiful square isn’t it?  But oh my goodness, I didn’t know what I was in store for with all those bullions (roll stitches)!  This was my first time using a bullion stitch, and I’ll admit it took me a good few hours sitting around with my hook and youtube before finally feeling comfortable enough using the straw technique.  The video that I ended up using to help here is here.

The square took hours to complete – a *very* long time.  But you know, it was worth it, because it is such a beautiful square!  I did, however, start having some serious reservations thinking about whipping up another half dozen of these to send out for the swap, but maybe if I tackle a little here and a little there, I can get it done.

Upon reflection, mine doesn’t look so much like kale, but all those bullion rolls do kind of look like baby carrots to me!

The pattern is by Donna Kay Lacey, whose work I just love  You can find the Ravelry download for $1.99 here and my project here.
