Aug 06 Mystery Crochet Along Revealed

This is what our Mystery Crochet Along at looked like when it was done. It is made in Omega Nylon Thread No. 18. What isit you may ask? It is a Men's Backscrubber and you can find the pattern here
This pattern is courtesy of Priscilla Hewitt, what a great designer. There is more than the backscrubber in the pattern, but for the Mystery Crochet Along I selected the backscrubber.

It was very interesting to work in Nylon, this is the second or third time that I make something with some kind of nylon thread. I think it is a great idea for the shower as it will be hard for it to get moldy et cetera. It was a little tricky as I have not worked with thisind of thickness before, but it all worked out. I am sure that you could make beautiful purses with this material, it is very resilient and has a nice touch. I got some more at my local Record store! Omega thread is made in Mexico and you can find an equivalent in Coats and Clark Nylon. Omega thread is a bit expensive, but you can probably find it in your local mexican or hispanic variety store, supermarket or wherever yarn from mexico is being sold. Ask them to bring it, it's technical name is "La Espiga" and it comes in different gauges 9, and 18 are my favorite.

It is a fact , it's hard to find patterns for men online, so when I find one, I celebrate and try to share it with other people looking for the same. Thanks for stopping by. I will have some interesting Potholders in a few days.

That came out great and the La Espiga was a great idea. I did mine in mauve and plum, not sure what it would turn out to be, but the colors are more suited to me, so I guess it's mine.

Cool idea, Andy! I think I'll snag the link. There are a few men in my life that just may like one of these ;)

Yours turned out great - love the colour combo.
