First up is a ruffle scarf that I saw on display at Joanns, I looked at the scarf and figured out the pattern all by my big-girl self! I was very proud. It's basically a variation of this pattern, but I did normal increases, instead of doubling each row, for a looser ruffle. Warning: It takes a boatload of yarn!
The hat is a standard beanie with a ribbed (FPHDC, BPHDC) edge. I found the perfect flower for accent. Great pattern. My fave flower yet, even if it's a little more complicated than the basic 5 petal flowers you can find online, it just looks sturdier! Add a nice wooden button and done!
Next up, the Seashell scarf that has been in my crochet folder for over a year. Fun, once I got the pattern, it worked up super fast. I probably could have made it longer, but I was running out of time. I wanted a little fancier hat to go with it, so found this cute pattern on Pinterest and went to town. I think it stitched up a bit on the small side, but this teacher seems to have a small head, so I think it will work. I used the flowers from the same pattern above, just omitting the last round to make them smaller. I adore the color scheme!
And with that, obligatory crochet is done! Now I have a craft night to go to tonight and nothing to make....I'm sure I'll think of something.
