Vine Lariat with Berries and Tiny Ladybird

I had a wonderful opportunity to test a pattern today. It is a Vine Lariat with Berries and Tiny Ladybird. The pattern is available at http://www.etsy.com/shop/BerthasBizarreBazaar.

I had a lot of fun crocheting this piece. I chose to do the vine in a chocolate brown, with a green/tan variegated mix for the leaves, I also added a few solid green leaves in the mix. I love the Little Ladybird (I call them Ladybugs) that accents the Lariate on one of the leaves.

I have a shop on etsy.com it's http://www.etsy.com/shop/crochetbyladyday. Etsy encourages you to join a team and I was lucky enough to find a team that brings designers and testers together. I spent today working on this piece and I can't wait to receive feedback from the designer.

The pic below is just the end of the Lariat with the Ladybug on the last leaf. I am going to use this as garland for a shelf I have in my livingroom. The original design is a scarf or necklace.

If you have the opportunity to try this pattern, go for it, it is a lot of fun!

Happy Hooking
