This time of year is perfect for a light scarf and I have some tips on how to create one very easily at the bottom of this post. Meanwhile enjoy this little black and white number which is a backdrop for my recent happy mail. It was a thank you from Goose the Weimaraner for helping celebrate his 15th birthday and it included a gift for me. It was a sticker and a tag which said SEE BEAUTIFUL. I will put the tag on my keyring to remind myself of all the beauty around me. The bag of yarn behind the foxes can only mean one thing!Brothers and sisters for them! I have a market coming up soon and also an opportunity to display and hopefully sell, my patterns at Woolarium the wonderful yarn and accessories shop in High St Northcote.
Another two scarfs from the same pattern and modeled on Owls made from Winter Owls lovely shop which I believe reopens in June this year. Now onto the scarf pattern.
gentlestitches beautiful and easy scarf pattern for knitting or crochet.
You will need. (a)Either a set of knitting needles or a crochet hook (any size) (b) a full ball of yarn of your choosing. (c) a tape measure. (d) a darning, tapestry or wool needle.
If knitting. Using knitting needles and tape measure cast on enough stitches to make 8.5 inches or 22 centimeters. Using knitting stitch of your choice (plain for beginners, complicated for advanced),knit until fabric measures 30 inches or 76 centimetres and cast off. Line up short ends, pin and then using the sewing needle, sew ends together. Sew in any ends and trim. Voila! Your own beautiful circular scarf to brighten up any outfit or peek out from a jacket.
If crocheting. Using crochet hook and tape measure, chain until work measures 8.5 inches or 22 centimetres. Choose any crochet stitch from single crochet to an advanced lace, work until fabric measures 30 inches or 76 centimetres. Line up short ends, pin and then using the sewing needle, sew ends together. Sew in any ends and trim. Voila! Your own beautiful circular scarf to brighten up any outfit or peek out from a jacket.
Send me a photo or a description if you make one. Enjoy!
