So, I happened to mention to a good friend that I was making myself a neck warmer. Not being yarn-savvy she asked if that was a "scarf without the hassle of a scarf" - I chuckled and replied that, yes, pretty much, that's what it was.
She all but begged for one.
Here's the result of a 6.00mm Tunisian hook, some Bulky weight acrylic and some Tunisian Simple Stitch rows later (I chained the measurement I wanted for the height of the neck warmer and the length was the amount of rows I crocheted... sc around the edge, along button hole edge was (sc, chain5, skip3, sc) and then a row back over in dc to make it more scalloped.
I, personally, love it and may frog the one for myself and attempt the Tunisian Knit Stitch for it (but I do have about 8,000 projects on the go at the moment).
My second FO is my attempt at the Pretty Puffs Slouchy Hat that I first saw on Ravelry and now appears every where else...http://jessicasuzanne.com/craftypants/2007/09/13/pretty-puffs-slouchy-hat-with-pattern/
Here's my version in inexpensive white Bulky weight acrylic....
I couldn't get my brain to work while making the hat and I ended up with (I think) 62 stitches for the puff rows (1 extra puff per row) or something silly and when it came to decreasing for the band to make the hat fit, I simply followed the original directions which means that my hat is still slightly larger than the pattern intends, but it seems to fit my head... Not sure if I will wear it, though *shrugs*
