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!

Hera's Hope Lace Scarf


There is no doubt in my mind that this pattern is the greatest discovery in my arsenal. It is a quick crochet project. I am able to crochet 2 squares in an hour. It takes about 7 to 10 hours to finish depending on your skill at joining the squares and your skill at weaving the ends. This will become my mother's second scarf, it is for her birthday and it has been done in a J hook 6mm instead of an G or H hook 4mm 4.25, this makes it a bit bigger and wider in itself.
I like that it has a very simple fringe. Fringe is very important in a scarf as it can add or take away from the design. As I discovered, my mother does not really know how to crochet the way I do, she knows how to make chains and edges. She can crochet a mean Barbie Outfit, I have seen her doing that, lol! Anyway this is Hera's Hope Scarf in the golden age, may the Gods of Kobol have mercy on our souls. Thanks for stopping by!
