Ever see a crochet pattern that you just love, and are driven to almost blindly picking up that hook and getting to work? That is how I felt when I saw the fabulous triangular scarf that Anna (from Portugal) shared, and I featured on Craft Schooling Sunday. Anna provided a simple diagram to get started and has now added a second one to show how to do the decreases, thanks Anna!
Oh, and of course I happened to have a bunch of skeins of light weight mercerized cotton on hand, perfect for creating a summer scarf that some of us might need for cool evenings.......
Anna made her scarf in one solid color, but since I only have one skein per color of this cotton yarn on hand, I decided to have a bit of fun and do some color blocking. The area of the color blocking is determined by how much I can crochet with a 50g skein, and I'm now officially half way through the scarf!
I don't think I've ever made anything with a 3.5mm hook as I always go for projects that are on the quicker side, but in this case, given the yarn weight, and the fact that it's a summer scarf, well I just didn't have a choice! I'll be back to share the finished results, hopefully after the piles of laundry have been tended to, the graphic design assignments have been completed, the request for some custom mezuzahs (five!) has been fulfilled, and well I could go on!
