Just taking some time to share what I have been working on.
I pulled this book off the shelf the other day. It’s funny how you can look at a thing a thousand times and not be receptive to any idea it offers. Then one day…BAM!
Triangle Fringe Scarf. Designed by Rachael Oglesby. Published in CROCHET BOUTIQUE.
There are a few patterns in this book I haven’t tried yet that look very promising. But, this one just kind of . . . reached out and grabbed me.
Just to get a feel for the pattern, which is soooo incredibly easy!, I pulled out some ‘scraps’ of yarn…
Not a terrific photo, but you get the idea. I used almost 5 ounces of yarn.
The biggest draw for me is using an over-sized hook. That makes it a very quick project. (I have made four scarves in about five days!) The most I have used on any one scarf was just under 6 ounces of Caron’s Simply Soft yarn. Plus, these scarves are so totally eye-candy impressively appealing! Just throw on a scarf, and you are ‘all dressed up’ The possibilities are endless!
Just randomly put this one together to see how it would turn out. I love it!
Here’s another version…this one turned out a little better.
And here, my favorite so far. I made this one a little larger. Steam pressed this one out before I fringed it.
A couple more shots just to show some detail…I decided it was fun to wear this one in layers. And, worn as a shawl, they are just the right touch of extra warmth to wear any time you need to ward off that little ‘chill’.
Aren’t they just to die for ? ? ? *sigh*
I have made another in blue and just started one in a beautiful ‘Pistachio’ green.
Just like Lays Potato Chips. Can’t stop at just one!
I hope to have given you just a little bit of inspiration for an easy, fashionable, quick, stylish, something-to-whip-up-quick-for someone you love (or, totally-for-yourself-because-you-can) gift on your Christmas gift list. Hug someone you love…and do it often. Just because you can!
