I finished Hallie’s scarf last night. Wow, this was a lot more work than it needed to be. She chose 2 colors that didn’t really go together, and the only way I could think to make it work was to do like a patch-work, with a neutral between and around, but it was a pain in a lot of places before it was done!
There’s a ripple at the base of each color block row – I slip-stitched in front loops on one side, then flipped and slip-stitched in back loops on the back. The whole thing is single crochet, except for the occasional slip-stitch. I just used a length of beige yarn and a yarn needle to whip-stitch the color blocks together to form rows, then wove the yarn through the stitches, to form a vertical line. It’s very wide, but Hallie can leave it full width to wrap around her ears, or fold it to double the thickness and be extra warm. I used Caron Simply Soft – the old version that was $1.50/skein at Walmart for a while. Colors are Grape, Rubine Red, and Bone.
Back to cross stitch before I attempt Katie’s!!
