Long Scarf

grey long 1

I realize winter is almost over, but I did make these scarves a little while ago. I made 4 scarves in 6 days, one for each of the gents in my home. This is a long, tasseled, loose-stitch crochet scarf with a knit look. Sometimes you just need a simple ordinary old scarf. And this is particularly warm too.

I used a simple double knit (worsted weight) yarn and an 8mm hook. The loose stitching makes this a very comfortable, soft and casual looking scarf. A smaller hook makes a tighter stitch and is a smarter style, as you’ll see when I post two of my other scarves.

I’m not sure my boys will get much more use out of them this season, but they are timeless and should last a few winters.

Newborn Narrow Headband

Tiny things are just too cute. This little headband was made for Megan Grace who is just a few weeks old (and has a wonderful name). I’ve made a couple of these headbands, but none as tiny as this.

I used this chart pattern which is easy to follow, and just added a few extra chain and a sl st at the end to make the button hole. My hook was 3mm. I also used a different flower as I prefer 5 petals to 6. Grey is a colour I would never have used for little people in the past, isn’t it funny how we used to limit ourselves with colours. I’m very grateful for the colour freedom of today.

This headband has a very sweet pair of shoes to match. I’ll be adding them to my blog in a couple of days.
