Hello, this week I worked on a second striped scarf. This one has a lot of the blue colour I used in my flower hats. The pattern is slightly different although on the same theme as the pink striped scarf I made last week.
The pattern of thin and thick stripes is really interesting and the scarf is fully reversible. The two sides do look quite different and I love the effect that results from turning the work at each end.
The scarf would be a great project for anyone just beginning to crochet for the first time. There are only three stitches to master and one of those is chain which is about as easy as it gets. However, the first row after the chain is very fiddly and I ended up having to do mine twice when I made this second scarf because I managed to get two stitches into one chain loop!
One very satisfying aspect of this pattern is that there are no ends to finish off. All the ends are ‘hidden’ in the fringing/tassles. 🙂
This has used up the last of the yarn I had left over from my flower hats! I will be reviewing my stash for the next projects but in the mean time have been out buying more gorgeous yarns. I will write a post on those later in the week once I have taken some photographs.
That’s all for now – have a go at one of these stash busting scarves – they grow really quickly and the finished item is really lovely. If you would like the pattern then it is available on my blog under the patterns section or if you find the ads annoying, visit my Etsy store where I will be listing it for a small charge.
