More crochet to share with you today – I hope you’re not too bored with the crochet yet – I promise next time to show you something other than yarn based crafts!
Firstly a scarf I crocheted for my husband (who managed to leave his scarf on the train!).
I had a ball of blue variegated wool that I’d bought a while back, and so I started to crochet this scarf. I actually had to send my husband back into town to get another ball as I didn’t quite have enough to finish it (you know it’s love if he’ll go and buy wool for you!) The scarf is really long – 250 stitches, and although it’s not completely clear from this photo, it has a ribbed pattern.
When I saw how well it’d come out I decided that I’d like a similar one for myself – here is mine:
I had an old scarf I’d knitted a year or so ago, which I didn’t wear as it kept curling up (I’m not good at knitting!), so I unpicked it and set about making this scarf. It’s slightly shorter, only 200 stitches long, and again I’ve crocheted it in a rib pattern, but this time I left gaps every other row. I really didn’t know how it would come out when I started it, but I love it. It’s quite lacy and light, and just the perfect length for looping through.
Next time no more crocheting (well maybe a tiny bit, but I promise there will be something different too!)
