I bought Paris for the first time as it was “nice not-wool” for a friend who can’t wear woollen items. I made the hat and got some leftover grey yarn. It was nice, if dull, to knit, as I tend to get easily bored with monochrome work.
Now, of the leftovers I made a small amigurumi mouse for my son…
…and then I bought some colours, as I really liked the feel of that yarn.
Really, I love it. It is made of several strands (8, I think), which plied together make for soft and reasonably strong yarn. Now, 2 years later, I have a crocheted mouse, a blanket:
1. Pieces arranged before stitching
2. During sewing:
3. Sewn together, partial border crocheted:
Now my son is keeping it in his bed and I can’t take a photo of the finished version.
And a bag :) (two different light settings, one for each side ;))
I can reasonably say: I WOULD BUY MORE.
Beginners? Yes, definitely. Undoes with no issue, no fuzz (it’s cotton!), wears out a bit after a few crochet/undo sessions, but not a lot. Before, I wrote it’s not good for beginners, but my son, who just started crocheting this year, actually liked it a lot. I WILL buy more, if he wants to make another mouse or anything.
