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.
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 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)…
