Winter is here ...
and so scarves are a staple in the windy city of Chicago, Illinois
- where two of my sons now live.
The first scarf is a gift
So Drew and I went to Hobby Lobby
and searched the yarn isle
for a suitable yarn.
(Drew is very, very picky)
He had his heart set on a beautiful red and black eyelash yarn.
I tried at first to knit with it...
NO GO !
my brain was in" blank-out mode".
Then I thought,.. well certainly I can do an easy crochet scarf
OH NO !
...it was a disaster, trying to keep my rows straight
So I bought some plain black yarn
and made a scarf
(it was so easy and only took me about an hour.)
I crocheted till it was about four and a half feet long.
(with tassels of course)
Heidi called me up and she really loves the scarf
I'm so glad it worked out.
Here is a small scarf I made
to use up the left-over yarn
|after I had a basic black scarf with a crochet hook|
|I added the eyelash yarn to it with a large darning needle (I'm a cheater )|
|weave the eyelash stuff in and out between the rows|
|keep the eyelash yarn very loose ...not too tight, or it will not show enough|
|first two rows on|
|four rows on|
|10 rows on|
|keep the end pieces there to make tassels with|
|cut all evenly|
|use another piece to tie around three or four of the ends to make a tassel|
|this one only has three tassels - you could make more|
|how do you like it ?|
