it’s really a coincidence that you will see pink flowers on my blog lately. this post is actually not about the flowers or the color pink but about this…
you have a garden party, dinner outdoors, a festive day with friends and family and then suddenly it gets colder. a sweater… partydress…ugh…does not look so nice. so what do you think of a soft shawl/stole?i wanted an easy peasy project and i choose a very soft yarn. to make delicious loose stitches i used a little bit to large crochet hook. because of the somewhat large hook the stitches do not all look very neatly, but soft flexibility you get in return.
if you go crochet this scarf too it is not recommended to use a yarn that will shrinks to much in the washing machine.
– 4 balls scheepjeswol softfun
– 60% katoen en 40% acryl
– 50 gr = 140 m
– crochet hook size 4.5 (normally i would use 3.5 or possibly 4 mm)
used stitches (american terms):
ch, ss, sc, dc
the basis for the scarf is this pattern for an edge (not mine, graph found on jessicatromp.nl)
i did it this way
– 45 chains
– 1 dc in the 5th chain from hook and then repeated row 1 and 2 until my last ball of yarn was almost halfway
– end with row 1
– then i crocheted: a. row 2 all around the scarf right side up, at the end of row ss to first stitch and b. row 3 all around,
and in the corners 1 sc, 1 ch, 1 dc, 1 ch, 1 dc, 1 ch in 4 ch space, 1 dc in sc, 1 ch, 1 dc, 1 ch, 1 dc, 1 ch, 1 sc in next 4 ch space (see photo), at the end of row ss to first stitch.
lastly i crocheted a simple band.
– first crochet a number of chains until it is long enough to fit your scarf,
– close it into a ring.
– on both sides: crochet a row of sc and finish with a row of slip stitches.
finito, hope you like it!
i found some pictures of such poor quality that i’ve made some new. they give a better impression of how the shawl is.
