Chunky purple bean stitch scarf

I used a chunky cascade yarn for this scarf in a mini bean stitch. This is the first time I have tried the stitch and it worked up very quickly and was easy to learn. You can watch the tutorial here on YouTube.

Monarch scarf

I found this yarn at one of the Greenville South Carolina local yarn shops called Yarn and Y’all at the recent Southeast men’s knitting retreat. I used one skein to make this scarf in a crocheted linen stitch and also used a size H 5 mm crochet hook.

Technicolor scarf

This is a hand crocheted V stitch scarf made out of knitting fever’s chromatic self striping yarn. It is a number two fine yarn made out of acrylic and wool. I used a size e-crochet hook. 

Green and brown alpaca scarf

I’m pretty sure this is alpaca yarn but I’ve been working on this scarf for so long I forget exactly what kind of yarn it is. It’s a lace weight yarn and I used a 4 mm bamboo hook to crochet a basic shell stitch. It’s incredibly soft and I think it turned out really nice.

Gray mohair wrap with button

I made this small wrap for a retirement gift. I used Italian mohair and wool yarns crocheting them two strands at a time in a half granny square motif. Then for the border I used two strands of gray wool in a single crochet.

Green dish cloth with crocheted edging

This is the second dish cloth that I have made on the knitting machine. I used Maysville carpet warp and the color is myrtle green.  I knitted 60 rows on 40 hooks. I decided to set the tension at three and like it a lot better than the previous dish cloth tension setting which was 6. I crocheted the edging with a size D metal crochet hook in a shell stitch pattern.

Light blue baby blanket

finished this in a couple of weeks 🙂 I used two strands of acrylic yarn in light blue and very light blue in a linen stitch and a size K hook. The border is one row in single crochet then a row of double crochet then a single row of single crochet.
