It was close but the Watermelon Ensemble won. This is a set that has a pot holder, key chain, refrigerator magnet and a bookmark. The key chain, magnet and bookmark are all the same motif with different things attached to make them useful.
The pattern tells you that you need worsted weight yarn, a magnetic strip, key chain and a ribbon. It's done using a G hook which seems kind of big for these but I'll try it. I'll use whatever scrap yarn I have so these may end up in different reds.
A few others have offered to make some of the other patterns in the October issue so stay tuned for that.
