I am still busy knitting scarfs and shawls. It is not so exciting work. The scarf I made last week was a very simple one and knitted in an evening or two. The yarn was Handwool from Hjertegarn, hand painted and a mix of wool, bamboo and acryl. The woman in the shop told me 4 skeins is enough for a sweater. I made a scarf and a cowl with one skein. I liked the colors, they are very sweat. On the picture is the infinity scarf, you can wrap it twice around your neck. The pattern is just tricot or stockinette stitch, so it was fast knitting. Later on it came to me i had better used a pattern, for now the scarfs curls at the sides. The scarf is knitted on needles 10 mm.
I am still in knitting mode. And this is what was upon my needles. Mr Fox from Woodland knits. The red brown yarn is Katia peru, the brown and white are some leftovers. Both yarn are wool mixes. The eyes are some buttons i found in my button box, they matched the fox perfectly. Mr Fox is a funny scarf or stole to wear and very warm indeed. Only winter is far away so It will stay on the table for a while.
Spring is coming soon! I wanted some easy crochet on my hook. So I made this scarf for my sister-in-law’s birthday.
It is an easy pattern! Pitch a chain of 40. Crochet just V’s or: 1 dc -2 ch – 1 dc, repeat till end of row and crochet in the chain or empty space in the V’s of the former row.
The yarn is nice and the color combination suites well with the spring colors
The pattern >> !vvvv!
This week I finished the third skull shawl. This time an other design than the other two shawls. It was easy to crochet, a less difficult design, easy to remember and working very fast. I made, stubborn as I am, some slight differences in the starting of a row and on ending the shawl. I wanted the shawl to be very firm, for I feared the edge would tear apart when heavily used. Furthermore the shawl is as planned and described, for more details look upon my ravelry account.
