One -Skein Scarf = Success
I just LOVE these easy and fabulous scarf that I finished a few weeks ago. (Yep, I am a little behind on posting some crochet projects). The pattern is from the Stitch N' Bitch: Happy Hooker crochet book. Is that not the best name for a crochet book, or what? It makes me laugh every time I read it. Ahhh...yes, my warped sense of humor does surface here sometimes. Sorry. But truly this is a fabulous book. Her basic crochet instructions are funny as heck. And the patterns are just plain cool.
Anyway, this is the One Skein Scarf by Denise Cozzitorto. Simple, one-skein and it looks great. It was a great travel project - easy to pick up and put away for a bit. And it makes a cute and quick present. I think I'm keeping the pink one. But I have two others in the works for upcoming presents.
It's a great length to wrap around your neck and still have enough of the pretty pattern to hang down.
(sorry about the cleavage shot.)
Project details: Paton's Classic Wool in Heather Rose (worsted weight yarn). I have a small ball left. The pattern called for an L hook to chain and then a J hook to work the rest of the pattern. But I used a K for the chain and then the J hook for the rest.
Yep, it's that easy.
