Autumn has arrived with a vengeance and one of the things I love about the cooler weather is the excuse to make scarves, I love to have a cosy scarf wrapped around my neck, I have a drawer overflowing with them all textures and colours.
There are some brilliant free scarf patterns on line and if I could I would try them all, my intention was to make a selection of scarves using the free patterns that are available to all of us and that is still my intention but because of my hands it will take a little longer than I intended.
I made these a few weeks ago, the pattern appealed to me because I had never tried this stitch before in fact I didn't even know about it, so simple and so effective. I know they look as if they are knitted but they are crocheted honest :)
Made with a soft and dreamy mohair with a 6 mm crochet hook, I made this one nice and long to wrap round and round.
Made with chunky yarn and a 7 mm hook, thick, warm and unbelievably quick to make.
Brown and cream chunky yarn makes an unusual stripy effect.
Do have a go at making at least one of these they are lovely to do starting with a long chain and then crocheted width-wise, find out how to make them here
I made these scarves for Loving Hands their destination will be for Operation orphan who are helping people in Serbia and Hungary this October.
