I wanted to make a scarf for my sister, for a while, so, when I finished my last project, I started to search the Internet (especially Pinterest) for some ideas and inspiration, and found this and this pattern, which I instantly liked.
I peered into my yarn stash, and found a beautiful brownish multicolor yarn, just what I was looking for! I made a square, and it was beautiful! I loved it! I was so happy that I found the winning combination! The following day, I went into my favorite (St. George) yarn shop, but, unfortunately, they didn’t have anymore the yarn I was looking for.
I was very, very disappointed. But, as you probably know from your own experience, you just can’t to feel bed in a yarn shop. I looked around in search for appropriate yarn for the scarf. I didn’t have to search for long. I found these beautiful autumn colors. 100% cotton. I liked them so much! As soon as I came home with a several skeins of my new favorite yarn (“Cotton Cable” 95m/50g from St. George), I started the scarf. I made one square, and really liked how it turned out. It looked even better then the square I’d previously made using the multicolor yarn. I made some changes in the last row of the pattern, because I wanted to use Join-As-You-Go method.
When I joined several squares together, they looked nice, the colors were fine, but something was missing. The squares didn’t look interesting enough, and they were somehow unconnected. So, I came up with the idea to add the petals into the fourth row of the square. That was it! The squares looked much more interesting and connected. I loved how they looked! Much better. I was happy! I’ve found the solution.
And do you know what is the best part in this story? My sister loves the scarf! And I love when the story has a happy end!
Do you remember my Pink & Gray pillow? I so liked this wonderful granny square pattern, from the lovely Mille makes blog, that I decided to use it again. This time for a scarf.
It’s cozy and warm, and I like it!
This is the first thing I made in this brand new year.
Next post will be very, very, colorful. Believe me.
I finally finished my shawl! I like it! It’s so soft and cozy, I so love to wear it!
The video tutorial for this shawl I found here on YouTube. It’s very simple and easy to make, and also very well presented. I’m very grateful for YouTube and Internet and for all of the great free patterns and tutorials! Thanks guys!
I also finished all the granny squares (from my previous post), so all I have to do now, is to decide how to join them together, and to do it. That part I don’t like as much as I love to crochet, so I hope I will not procrastinate…
Yesterday I found this unpublished photo of the little owls in my computer, so I thought maybe it would be nice to share it with you. I wrote the post about them previously here.
