Finished this scarf in a weekend! I decided to be really creative with my sale yarn I found at The Needler in Lexington. It was my first visit there and I will certainly go back. I’ll certainly use this kind of striping technique again
Finished and delivered this birthday gift! It’s a wrap/capelet and I used two strands of yarn for the body: cashmere/merino and silk mohair. I didn’t use a pattern either – guess I should write these things down as I do them!
For this scarf I used Berroco Lustra yarn which is 50% Peruvian Wool and 50% Tencel Lyocell. It’s a wonderful yarn to work with and the feather and fan stitch works great with it!
I found this great pattern from the yarn shop in Summerville, SC – The Village Knittery (which is a great shop by the way). The person working there found this scarf pattern on Ravelry and printed it out for me. I used two skeins of Berroco Ultra Alpaca and modified the pattern slightly so it wouldn’t be as wide. I will definitely use this pattern again!
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?)
Ok, I’ve got to say, I’m extremely proud of this baby blanket! This was commissioned by a friend for his new baby nephew. I used Caron Simply Soft in 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 tiny shell stitch outer border that places (sc, ch 3, sc) in every other stitch. For any baby blanket I make in the future, I will certainly use this pattern (that I made up)…
