Quick’n Easy Crochet wk 7

welcome to a new week and a new month!! did you all have fun with kinda crochet along?? I’m sorry I slacked off so much, and I’m a bit bummed I didn’t have time to make it myself. did anyone make one?

This week since its now November I thought the cornucopia pattern would be fun.

I asked my mom (from yarn upon a dream) to crochet it for me since I’m not too familiar with the basket weave:)(she also made the cute pumpkin in the pic:))

she whipped it up way quicker then I could too. its a super cute pattern and she told me she liked this way of doing the basket weave better then her other way.
And instead of household twine she used Caron perfect match in taupe.

so without further ado:)
