I wanted to try Mini-Mochi for a long time, so I picked up 2 skeins from Jimmy Beans Wool and used the Diamond Exchange pattern to make it. The skeins aren’t identical, so it was easy just to alternate and enjoy the colors as they emerge. Love this yarn.
What a great idea, really.
Made this for one of the mannequins in a miniature LYS I’ve been making. It’s been on hold though for a long time. So many tiny yarn skeins are needed to stock the shelves, but that’s another story. Eventually…
The shawl pin is 3/8” and the scarf is crocheted with a .4mm crochet hook and one strand of embroidery floss in many colors.
This class will be taught at The Knitting Garden in Coral Gables, FL – Saturday, November 20th, 2010 from 3-5pm. The class will include the pattern.
I can’t help it. I like making this scarf. This one is over 6′ long and very soft. Crocheted in Berroco Ultra Fine and Melody Superwash.
The time had come to put a personal pattern online. The Diamond Exchange Scarf is a personal fave for many years and I was lucky enough to know a few crocheters who were willing to test it for me. I used sock weight yarn, because that’s my favorite. They seemed to enjoy the pattern and the results – what a wonderful feeling. Big smiles. 😀
I really do love making this pattern over and over, so I think scarves for Christmas gifts in 2010 is a definite possibility. I had bought some very soft cashmere on eBay and I currently stash a ton of Koigu, so I played with the colors and found myself in love with this one. I will keep it for my own use, but I may make another similar for my sister, because she likes the knitted and crocheted stuff quite a bit – who knew?
Here are some more variations…
And how about a little math to make a pillow for my sewing spot?
A resounding “YES” and sew it was done.
