I’ve been making this scarf for a little while and I’m really enjoying it, so it’s now an available pattern. So far, my favorite yarns to make this in are Berocco Folio and Tosh merino light. Both very different yarns – the Folio is an elegant and luxurious feel and a great drape, while the tosh has a color depth that’s rustic and rich. GREAT choices!
Here are some I’ve made with Berocco Folio….
And here’s one in the Tosh merino light…
It’s rally hard to let these go – but they’re part of my Etsy offering for the fall and will be available soon at my new Etsy shop for finished items:
It may seem silly that I make my own pattern often, but this is why I published them – because I really do enjoy making them that much. This is the Shell Script Shawl, but in the pattern instructions are given for the scarf version. This yarn is a dk weight whipped up quickly during lunch breaks at work.
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.
I do tend to make the same patterns over and over and over… I guess patterns are a bit like books, recipes or even friends – some you just enjoy more than others. I kid, I kid.
I love Koigu, but I don’t care to order it and it comes in a totally different color. This time I ordered from Jimmy Beans Wool and this was pretty spot on, so that was nice. Look at all the colors they have!! I was in heaven.
So here is my purple Koigu cowl. I plan to sell it in my Etsy shop. If you haven’t tried Koigu, you should know it softens so much after washing and it fades and fuzzes a little over time but it’s still so pretty.
Testing is just about complete and the pattern should be out on or near August 15th. I will make it available here, so I hope you check back.
I’m liking this piece much more in Madeline Tosh Merino Light, shown here in Nebula (blue), and Nutmeg (gold) but the green (olive) was 2 strands of Malabrigo Lace held together. I think this will be a warm cowl and keep it shape with yarns that have that fuzzy halo about them. A little harder to rip back for a mistake, but worth it.
I need a cranberry one for with my charcoal coat this winter.
This is the Venetian Carnival cowl. A new crochet pattern coming end of August in time for Fall.
