Finally. Completed Crochet Neckerchief, in Leaf Green


I am very happy to have finally completed this beautiful neckerchief.  Of course, I had to put my own finish on the pattern with a fabulous ruffle.  I think it finishes it off very well.  I had contemplated putting some beads in the final row . . . but was so anxious to get it off my hook I decided against it.

The pattern is called Chakra Neckerchiefs, which I first posted about here:

Here is where I got the inspiration for the final border design . . .

The Complete Book of Crochet Border Designs: Hundreds of Classic & Original Patterns [Hardcover]

And, the yarn . . . Wool Cotton 4 Ply

Rowan Wool Cotton 4 Ply

Rowan’s Wool Cotton 4 Ply is a wonderfully soft blend of 50% Merino Wool and 50% Cotton in a fingering weight. Like the heavier weight Wool Cotton, Wool Cotton 4 Ply features a high twist in the spinning which helps create knitted designs with a beautiful drape and great stitch definition.  Made in Italy.

    Looks fabulous. I start lots of things but it does add variety to crocheting.I like the sound of the Rowan cotton and wool blend in 4ply and will look out for that one. 🙂

  2. Thanks! I am pretty sure at all times I must have at least 3 or 4 things going because I hate being bored, but I have to keep busy!
    I believe I must have gotten a heck of a deal on this fabulous yarn. From Craftsy.com I think, otherwise there is no way I would be working with yarn that costs over $10.00 per skein! (I am a bargain hunting fool, thus, a yarn stash that I will never, ever use up. *sigh*)

  3. Very pretty 🙂 love the added ruffle. Finishes it off beautifully!

  4. A great addition. I love that book of edgings although I wish that the samples had been properly blocked before the photographs!!

    Yes, the ruffle is very feminine. It’s not always easy to find a book of edging designs, is it! Love yours. Also love the colour of the neckerchief. Very pretty.

    • Thank you! I just sort of flipped the book open and picked the first one I liked. Mostly because I was so anxious to get this thing finished. I am terrible at making decisions, so I knew I just had to PICK real QUICK. 😉 I am happy with the way it turned out.
