on the website of the style crusader, i found pictures of this dress and the color combination was what appealed to me.

a while ago i bought a fair amount of cheap acrylic yarn to crochet a blanket, but guess what: each color had a different thickness. so goodby blanket, i will use it for other purposes. this scarf is one of them.
blocks and stripes
for this scarf i had a nice color plan developed including soft pink and then i tried to crochet a scarf of double crochet, but it was almost bizarre, all hills and valleys. eventually i worked with front post and back post stitches. even then i had the pink section pulled because it felt like cardboard and i had the white yarn replaced by another brand. anyway this is the final result.
you too have similar experiences with yarn? i’ve also seen this with more expensive yarn and recently i’ve had yarn of which parts in one ball were thicker or thinner than the rest. annoying, manufacturers please solve these problems.
