My habit lately is to start a whole bunch of projects and then skip around between them, which means I don’t finish much. In the last week of the New Year I decided to focus and finish a few that I’ve had going for a long while.
The scarf above is based on a stitch pattern, open fan stitch, from the book Harmony Guides Vol. 6, 300 Crochet Stitches. The yarn is Misti Alpaca Hand Paint Sock Yarn and it’s a dream to work with. For more details see my Ravelry project page. (Notice the cardinal in the upper right hand corner of the above photo)
The red scarf is based on the Luna Lovegood Scarf pattern by Jen Valure. I modified the pattern to make the scarf lay flat rather than ruffle. The Polaris yarn with sequins is perfect for a New Year’s celebration and it wasn’t hard to crochet with. The sequins are spaced far enough apart that you’re not always working over one. More technical details on my project page.
Why do I start yet another project? Because it promises to be a quick one.
A little teabag holder using scrap yarn, just an improvised pattern. It holds about 4 teabags.
I will leave you with a link to a cute star pattern. This is great for practicing your puff stitches. A tip for making puff stitches, keep the yarn overs loose so that it’s easy to go back through the loops. The pattern is called Granny Star and is available for free on Ravelry.
See my Ravelry project page for technical details.
Happy New Year.
