This is the result of me trying my arm at crochet.
Let's ignore the fact it's not exactly the weather for wool scarves, a photo opportunity is a photo opportunity after all.
I didn't tell the full story in the first line - this is the result of me trying my arm at crochet without reading the pattern thoroughly.
This is a version of the One Skein scarf in the Stitch 'n' Bitch Happy Hooker book. I admired one made by blogless (to my knowledge) Ella, who goes to Glasgow Knit 'n' Stitch and had a brief look at her pattern and decided to give it a bash in a very gung-ho manner, and of course, let's lengthen it, and of course let's sub a different yarn of a totally different weight. Let's not worry about the fact you're not very crochet-savvy.
Well, it came back to bite me in the bum! The foundation row, or cast on as I will call it, was far too tight in comparison to the body of the scarf, meaning it curves in a rather astonishing manner! It seems that the Happy Hooker would have you use a hook 2mm larger for your initial row, which makes perfect sense now that I read it after the event.
Anyway, it IS wearable, as a sort of collar pic #1 at the neck of your coat to keep the wind out.
Pic #2 shows you the nice colour of the Twilley's Freedom Spirit (2 1/2 balls) in "Bliss" shade 508and my Swarowski love heart brooch.
Pic #3 shows you how much it wants to curve curve curve.
Enjoyed making it, and I will wear it and LEARNED A LOT about crochet. x K
Pic #4 is Lindsay the Llama who finally came up to the fence at Balcary Bay.
