This is another small item that I did when I got bored with making squares. The pattern actually called for DK weight yarn and a 2.5 mm hook. I personally don’t like the finer yarns and small hooks. It makes my hands cramp up to crochet with them. So I used worsted weight yarn and a F/5 – 3.75 mm hook. This hook size is about the smallest one I can use that doesn’t make my hands cramp. I did cramp up a couple of times when first starting, because the circle starts out so small. It also called for making some flowers for the lid. I am not good at making flowers so I just changed colors on the lid.
