I am hoping that this blog will help you and me experience the craft of crochet as well as knitting. During times of silence or turmoil, crochet and knitting continuously help me quiet my mind at my own pace, enabling me to find my center. I have patterns for sale in PDF Format, you can find them at their own Pages at the top menu. The posts are classified By labels which are at the far right, all the way down. We are the Borg! I think it will bring Order into Chaos!

Winter Scarf for that Winter Hat Nov 06





Here you have that scarf for that Hat. It is very light , but since it has various materials , I think it will be warm enough. I was able to block it with a little steam, never touching the item. It blocked wonderfully. What did I used for a pattern? I used the lattice Square from the 63 More Easy to Make Squares Afghan Booklet. I was going to go for a more complex pattern, but when I considered the situation at hand this is what I saw.

When you have a complicated pattern, you need a simple yarn. By the same token when you have not so good yarn a complicated pattern can make your yarn look fabulous. The point I am trying to show you is , too much going on and either your pattern or your yarn will get lost in your masterpiece . It is just my opinion and the way I do things. I also designed this scarf to have a soft wide area for the neck , and the rest has lots of textures for your fingers to entertain themselves while you are in line out side waiting to go to the Opera. Thanks for stopping by and come back later one I will have some other project that I am working on soon.
