My first crochet project! After my introductory class at The Make Lounge and my first two Beginner's Crochet class at Loop, I wanted to give a real project a go. I bought a bunch of crochet magazines and found this pattern by Sara Sinaguglia from Inside Crochet magazine. Basically hooking a load of rows - I could handle that! I bought the yarn from Loop - they had the Rowan Cocoon which is the main part of the scarf - a really chunky, wooly yarn. And I found some gorgeous Madelinetosh merino DK in a petrol blue for the edging (better than pink for my complexion I think!).
The scarf was super easy to make - just double and triple crochet stitches. It went really quickly and I finished up in just two nights in front of the telly - so about 3-4 hours.
Sadly, the scarf isn't particularly flattering on me (I think it's too thin), but it looks great on Billie! Maybe I'll make it again and make it wider. The spiral effect is really cool.
