Dangerous Implements - Cleaver Pattern

Hey Kids! Long time no type.

Well as most of you know I am obsessed with horror movies, Halloween AND of course, crocheting. So, how does one meld those seemingly disparate interests together? By crocheting cleavers of course!

This pattern is the first in a series of patterns that I am calling Dangerous Implements. The pattern utilizes size 10 crochet thread, Knit Picks Curio, and a 1.5 mm steel hook. Now, as with all of my thread based patterns, sizing up is not a problem if you are afraid of thread (no judgment here as fear of thread is not unusual). Just use a heavier weight yarn and corresponding hook that will allow you to create a fairly tight fabric. Your cleaver will be gigantic, but hey, if you are into larger than life cleavers, then you are probably someone I want to hang out with. Hah!

Anyhoo, directions use US crochet terminology and abbreviations AND they are appropriate for an experienced beginner.

So, show your love for horror movies, decorate your Halloween tree with cleaver ornaments or just let everyone know that you are an amazing cook that likes to chop stuff up by crocheting cleavers!
