More winter woolies

April 1, 2013

As the weather is showing no signs of warming up anytime soon, and I have a crochet addiction to feed, I decided to make myself a scarf.

My mum had gifted me some wool, that I had previously gifted to her after an abortive attempt at learning to knit.

And I had a good root around for patterns on Pinterest (where else?!) and found this great free pattern on Fibre Flux

This is my version:

BigSmall took this photo-thought he did very well!

I only had a 5mm hook, I am on the hunt for some bigger ones, so I’m not sure if it has come out the right size or whether it should be a bit bigger.

I had a root around in my Nana’s button collection and found these, which I think look pretty good.

It even matches matches my hat!

BigSmall took this one too..!

AND it cost me precisely nothing! Hooray!

    looks great, I love scarves and cowls like this. I might have to make one from that pattern too! The only problem I have is finding non-itchy wool!

      The wool I used isn’t too bad (can’t remember now what it was-sorry!), and it’s not too tight, so not been itching 🙂
