Super chunky purple scarf

For this scarf I used two skeins of cascade Covington wool and acrylic blend yarn. I used a size 10 mm crochet hook and the stitch is a linen stitch.

Basic. Simple. Recycled scarf. 

I found some sale yarn I bought months ago and thought I’d try it on my knitting machine. The result? A great little summer scarf. Here’s a description of the yarn:

Rowan Purelife Revive Yarn – Color: Marble; Color Number: 466; Dye Lot: 3604; Yarn Weight: DK / Light Worsted [3]; Fiber Content: 36% Recycled Cotton, 36% Recycled Silk, 28% Recycled Viscose; Yardage: 137 yards in 50 grams; Gauge: 5.5 stitches = 1″ on US 6 needles; Ply: Plied; Texture: Smooth; Care: Hand Wash, Lay Flat to Dry. A fully recycled DK weight summer yarn with a wonderful rustic tweed effect.

Mochi plus hat

This is a hat I made for a one-year-old using this pattern for 12-24 months in half double crochet. I used the entire skein of Mochi Plus Violets Rainbow yarn and turned out really great! Another gift finished 🙂

And here’s a photo of Jin in his new little birthday hat!

  

Noro coaster set

Finished this set in two days. I decided to try and felt them and after two washes I got a nice effect.

Lana bambu purples scarf

I used this wonderful Lana bambu yarn to make this scarf. The stitch is a half double crochet through the back loop which makes little ridges and gives the fabric a wonderful texture.

Shell stitch scarf

I’m finally getting around to posting his finished scarf. This is from one huge hank of bamboo wrapped wool yarn I got from the Fibre Studio Shop in Charlotte NC. I think it was 720 yds. I can’t find the label but remember it was five ply sport weight. The yarn was a little difficult to work with at first but I got use to it.

Clemson dishcloth

Made this Clemson colors dishcloth this morning in bamboo and cotton yarn. I used the Tunisian simple stitch and did a basic crochet border.

Blue and green striped scarf

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 🙂
