About The Project Name
Mystery Achievement by The Pretenders was an ideal choice for this mystery that I was able to solve and even write my own mystery.
About The Yarn
Schoeller+Stahl Portofino Soufflé
Fiber Content: 40% Cotton, 40% Acrylic, 20% Nylon
Yarn Colors: 4705 (2 balls), 4724 (7 balls), 4739 (2 balls), 4727 (2 balls)
Yarn Weight: 5, Bulky
Very pretty colors, but it has a bouclé feel, which gets very old when one has to frog, and because I was improvising, on a new technique, I have plenty of opportunity to frustrate myself. I got so frustrated at one point I broke the yarn, frogging. Grrr!
About The Pattern
The pattern was created in my head, as I crocheted. Until I got a pattern I liked, and then I had to chart a few layers until I was proficient enough to work without them. I was going to write a pattern, but when I realized I would have to include instructions on how to interlock crochet, I decided against it. I was having enough frustration following pattern and frogging bouclé yarn.

If you look closely at the pictures, you might notice the reversed pattern.
I would like to point out that this was crocheted in-the-round, which I challenged myself to learn, as the book I used (Interlocking Crochet: 80 Original Stitch Patterns Plus Techniques and Projects by Tanis Galik) taught only row-by-row.
