2019-04-27 Update: I had originally named this Two Clouds Above Nine. A photography search revealed I had repeated the project name on a future project, so I renamed this American Boy by Estelle, in keeping with my current default naming convention.

Oh, and PROPS to Estelle for no commercial advertisement!

October 10-November 16, 2010

My photographic evidence shows that this was gifted to Tristan. Tristan. Who might that be? I think it was the last son of a old co-worker of mine from my first job at Broadway department store.

Tension looks excellent. This was the first time I used two different yarn weights together…it actually turned out well.

Pattern: Solid Granny Square from Art of Crochet by Teresa
Hooks: US G-Hook (4.00 mm) and US M/N-Hook (9.00 mm)
