I give up! It is indeed getting warmer outside so soon I need to put my hats and thick scarfs into storage so they can sleep until next winter. Hats are not only worn because they keep your ears and head warm but also because they fulfill the purpose of adding a decorative element to the wearer’s outfit. During summer, I can now wear headbands. Those are the first two… I am already working on more designs and chances are good that they might make it into my online store.
Headband 01 – For one of those days when my outfit is once again all black and I want to avoid being asked if something happened in my life (seriously, I get asked if someone died when I wear all black to work). Adds a big splash of color.
Headband 02 – Perfect for outfits in brown tones. Plus goes perfectly with….
… with my first loop scarf (I used the same yarn, actually left-over yarn from this jacket).
Loop scarfs are as easy to make as normal scarfs. They are just worked in rounds, not back and forth. They present a good opportunity to practice patterns. Just be careful not to twist your first row when joining the chain stitches to create the loop!
If you are looking for a big collection of patterns, I can really recommend “The Complete Book of Crochet Stitch Designs” by Linda Schapper. The book includes 500 patterns. A great inspiration for scarfs (but not only I guess).
