I tried a new pattern for this skinny scarf. You can find it at http://crochet.about.com/library/weekly/aa030106.htm. I used an angora/wool blend yarn with an H hook.
For this scarf I used a 96% merino boucle yarn by Sublime. It’s a little difficult to work with so i had to take my time. I finished it off with a sc boarder of black/gray/white kid mohair.
For this scarf, I used a shell and v stitch and Universal yarn. This yarn is wonderful to work with and I got it from the great yarn shop in Beaufort, SC. Coastal Knitting is a welcoming and well stocked store and in a great location right downtown. I got some great advice there and picked up this and a few other kinds of yarn. If you’re ever in the Hilton Head SC area, I highly recommend making a special trip
This was my first attempt at the tipsy cluster stitch and I think it came out nicely! I used Louisa Harding Kimono Angora Pure yarn which is 70% Angora 25% Wool and 5% Nylon. It is a great yarn to work with and the scarf is very light and ultra soft.
This nice long scarf only took a couple of days to make. I used a simple fan stitch and used three balls of Sundance Countryside wool/mohair/acrylic yarn. However, because I hardly ever use patterns, I now have one ball leftover. Tassels? Maybe. I have 4 balls of another color so I’ll just make it wider!
Well, it was a surprise – and now that the surprise is over, I decided I really don’t like this yarn color which is Yarn Bee’s arctic blue. I like the texture of it but just not the color mixture. It’s kind of like a weird camouflage… I would like this yarn a lot more if it didn’t have the odd colors speckled throughout… The shawl is a simple granny pattern and the border is just a double crochet.
This was commissioned and I used Caron Simply Soft in two shades of blue and white and did a basic crochet shell stitch throughout. The border is one round of single crochet in blue, then double crochet in white, then a picot for the border. There are 17 shells across and then 11 rows of the blue colors which are 4 shells wide (can you tell i made up the pattern?)
