More Scarves and A Blanket

Thursday, November 12, 2009

I've been crocheting like a mad woman and have a bunch of finishes to share. First off are a few scarves:

This one is the ribbed SC pattern done in I Love This Yarn Stripes. One skein only makes a child size scarf.

This one is rows of alternating DC and SC done in I Love This Yarn Ombre Pink Camo.

Here we have a granny square scarf done in Red Heart Ombre "Melon Berry" and I Love This Yarn Solids "Hot Rose" and "Peach".

Now here's the exciting part... I finished a baby afghan!


This is done with all I Love That Yarn in Solids. I used a I hook and the square pattern comes from 99 Granny Sqares by Leisure Arts. This took me about 5 nights to finish. I love how it came out!

As usual, you can find all of these finishes for sale in my Etsy store.

Thanks for looking and happy hooking!

I haven't had a chance to update in a few days, but I was able to finish a few things. First off, here is my first attempt at an amigurumi character. It's a hippo. I didn't give him eyes, it was just more of a test of the pattern, but I think he turned out quite cute nonetheless.


Next are a couple of scarves. The first is another striped and ribbed one in white and red. You'll either be mistaken for Waldo or a giant elf. Done with a I hook and I Love This Yarn brand yarn.


This next one is a granny square scarf. I've decided I really like doing granny squares! This one is again done with an I hook in I Love This Yarn. I'm not sure what the color is called. The pattern is from a book "99 Granny Squares to Crochet" by Leisure Arts.



I've now started my most ambitious project yet, an afghan! It's a granny square pattern, but they're actually hexagons. I'll post a pic of one square tomorrow.

As usual the scarves are for sale on Etsy so check it out.

Happy Hooking,
