Lace and Bobbles Crochet along at Crochetville
Feb 5th Knitted Chevron scarves
I bought this 100% cotton yarn called Ty-Dy last year
when my husband and I took a little trip to Fort Bragg area.
Found the yarn in this little yarn shop. A little pricey
at $12.00 a ball but had to have it. I love tye dyed stuff.
I finally found this easy pattern on the Internet that I thought
would show off how pretty this yarn is. I started knitting
these scarves on Friday night...it's a work in progress. I
will also post them when I complete them.
Completed the one on the left.
end of January
I knitted these hats practicing the basketweave stitch.
Which is k5, p5 for five rows then p5, k5 for five rows.
I cast on 80 stitches. Knitted them until they were about
5 or 6 repeats of basketweave then started decreases at 8 then
k2tog around , repeated each round 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1, then k2tog around
cut yarn and pull thru last 8 stitches. It was fun making them.
The ice cream looking hat is a slouch hat...got the pattern
on the Internet. It was fun too. OH...the yellow object in the picture is my husbands new toy, a little remote control helicopter
