I’ve been set a crochet challenge this weekend. What can I make from a ball of James C. Brett Noodles? It’s very stretchy, chunky, pure polyester and boy is it bright!
I like this fresh green colour. I’m a big fan of greens. Noodles comes in a range of bright, sherberty shades and I’d like to combine this with turquoise perhaps. I wanted a quick mini project so decided on a nice, stretchy headband.
There are 250 to choose from so it’s brilliant value and great for trying new crochet techniques. It’s also incredibly easy to follow with one stitch per page and a handy diagram plus clear photo of each stitch. I’ve had mine for about five years now and have used it to create a number of scarves, blankets and other small projects.
It was a fun stitch to work, quick to do, and the two rows of dc on either side of the leaf motifs gave the head band some structure. I’d recommend working a smaller number of starting chain than you think you will need as it is so stretchy. The Noodles was nice to work with and all in all a successful mini project I think.
