May I introduce you to Delores….my new autumn scarf.
Well, it’s not really a SCARF but more of a wanna-be scarf or even a bow necktie!
I do love bows and shared some of my favorites in this post.
I spent my evenings knitting her, and yesterday I crocheted a little lacy border for her.
Best part of this scarf is that it is really very simple.
If you haven’t knitted for a while, this will be the prefect project to get into knitting again.
I used Malabrigo lace yarn and I must confess that it is much easier knitting with thicker yarn, but the super softness was a treat to work with!
The basic shape is a rectangle with two pointy ends.
You can just brush up on increasing and decreasing via youtube if you are a bit rusty.
The fun part is combining some knitting and crochet!
You’ll also find many here.
I am definitely going to use my Fancy Pansy Brooch with this scarf.
The crochet edge really makes this scarfy (because it is not a SCARF) so sweet and yummy for me.
Hope you have a fantasic week!
PS: what do you think of the folder I made and painted for my pattern?
I’m going to make a folder for all my projects so I can document when I start and finish, a little sample of the yarn- even the lot number and the price, how many skeins was used, a place where the pattern can go in and a place for notes.
I can just imagine looking back a few years from now and seeing all my projects in their own specially made folders!
