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!

Blocking Hufflepuff Scarf, starting Gryffindor

So here you got the Hufflepuff being blocked and laying on a towel. Actually at this time I have changed the towel twice and it is pretty dry, it may take a day or two. I will be adding the fringe later. I washed it in Woolite and 1/8 Th cup of Distilled Vinegar, and in the rinse water I added another 1/8 Th cup of Distilled Vinegar as well. It looks nice and it feels very soft. The vinegar most help preserve the oils of the wool and cashmere.



The pattern was easy to make made on the round , 86 stitches, (The next one will probably be 70 or 74), I will have the free pattern later on when the fringe is added and I have a picture to post. It is exactly 60 inches in length, what perfection lol!

Here I am, starting the Gryffindor Scarf, this time in Crochet. I will be using A size I hook or 5.50 mm. I am in a Harry Potter Scarf Exchange at Http://groups.msn.com/crochetdepot aka Crochet Depot and one of my partners is allergic to wool so I am making this one in Acrylic and it is looking very nice. I am using the same pattern that I created for the Knit version, but modified for crochet. I am making this scarf in Half Double Crochets. It is not small nor too big, it is perfect. It may be 68 inches as the pattern calls for it to be that way. It will also have a fringe. Do you like the combination of colors I have chosen for Gryffindor? I hope you do. Thanks for stopping by!
