So many projects before Christmas!
I started knitting this scarf in early October as part of a private knitting lesson that I was teaching. I just finished it last night. It doesn't take 2 months to make, I was just trying to wait for my student to be at a point where we could finish ours together. I used 2 skeins of Red Heart Boutique Treasure yarn in the Tapestry colorway. I just picked up the two yarns at different places in their coloring so that the stripes stood out. I really like this pattern (The Unicorn Pegasus Rainbow Scarf by Huan-Hua Chye), and I want to make more of them in different colorways.
easy pattern. I want to try to make 2 to 3 more before Christmas to give as presents.
pattern on ravelry. The right hand pillow is the published version. The left hand one was my first attempt before I made changes to the pattern.
Mickey of The Crochet Crowd on you tube where he was showing how to crochet an infinity cowl using some scrappy yarn. I modified his directions only slightly to make my own. He chained 80 and I chained 120. I used an H hook and Red Heart Boutique Treasure yarn (Mosaic). I crochet until the skein ran out.
you tube videos on how to make a tunisian honeycomb stitch.
very very easy pattern to make.
The flower is from a different bag pattern. I also published this bag pattern on ravelry recently.
