I really love chunky yarn – not only are your projects done in (almost) no time, they also look much more interesting. Have a look at this scarf with a shell pattern from my so far favorite pattern book “The complete book of crochet stitch designs“:
I needed 6 skeins of yarn for the scarf. It is not gigantic, enough to wrap it twice around your face though so you can be warm and cozy. Eeh, keep you warm? Actually you would not need that right now – it is really warm for December. When I was little we had tons of snow at this time, now we have green landscapes.
Working hard on some presents for Christmas, a first blister is slowly but surely developing on my right thumb. I’ll make sure to take a picture when it gets worse. And eventually starts bleeding!
Less than 20 weeks till Christmas! Soon it is going to be winter so you need a warm scarf to protect your face from the gushing wind.
Nah, just kidding. My grand-aunt is turning 80 in a couple of days and she wanted a hat as a present. Hats need to go with a matching scarf so I first made a really nice scarf. It is super-soft, made of 90% Baby Alpaca. The hat will follow soon.
And here is me, wearing the scarf. It is really warming!
The scarf is now in the freezer so it won’t scratch when my grand-aunt will be wearing it.
Today is Koninginnedag and for this occasion I have made two headbands in the suitable color. One is for me, one for a friend of mine to wear for the festivities ( I really hope she likes it…)
Crochet headbands are an excellent way of practicing lace patterns. I used Catania yarn, the colors are brilliant plus the yarn is a bit shiny. Catania is one of my favorite yarns for accessoires.
Happy Koninginnedag everyone!
