Your scarves are fabulous! Grin

I must give this pattern & yarn a go.

Thanks Cheesy They do turn out very pretty and they're so cozy and warm. I was thinking about combining two yarns at once, but I'm not sure how I'll do it. I will try soon, to see how it turns out Cheesy

Nice job! I've seen these before but don't know how to make them. Do you just single crochet the edge?
Thanks. I watched this tutorial http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e0RI04BU6p4 and went from there.

I love the look of finished ruffle scarves, but can't stand working with ruffle yarn lol. I admire anyone who can hahaha!!!

Thanks Cheesy It was kind of hard at first. The only thing that frustrated me was that I had to stop every now and then to untwist the yarn Tongue
4  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Question about blocking on: August 26, 2013 05:18:42 AM
Hey everyone! I have this weird question about blocking. So far, I've never done it. The only thing I did that sort of resembles blocking (or at least, how I understand blocking works) is ironing my projects.  But I know the most used blocking method is to get the finished project wet and then stretching it and drying it like that. That's fine with me.

What I don't understand is this: if I wash whatever it is I worked on after I blocked it (and worn it) doesn't it go back to it's shape before being blocked? I'm hoping my question makes sense  Huh

I love the look!  The green one is particularly beautiful...nice job, and nice score on the yarn!

Thanks. I'm just sorry they don't have other yarns as well *pouts*

These are great!  Love the variety of colors you made. Smiley

Thanks. I was hoping to find a rainbow colored one, but no luck so far.

Lovely scarfs, congrats on the score.


Lovely scarfs , i love the blue one especially  Smiley

Thanks. I love the blue one too.

Handwash would be safest, but I've found that most things can hold up to gentle on cold.  Just line-dry if you can.  Dryers are the real killers.

I put it in the washing machine and fortunately it was okay. I don't have a dryer (I like to let my clothes to line-dry). And it didn't ruin the afghan. I was a bit scared, but it turned out very well *phew*

Its beautiful!  Cheesy Fantastic job! And I agree, the piece is really beautiful and it does catch the eye. Beautiful job!

Also thank you for giving the link to the pattern. I might have a go.

Thank you!
Ohh, I can't wait to see how yours turned out.

My favorite Euro shop in town is closing *sob*sob*sniffle*sniffle* And they're having a massive sale, especially on yarn. Unfortunately, they have only these yarns and the yarn with pom poms (which I can't say I love all that much). Anyway I decided to buy the ruffled yarns since they looked amazingly cute and I was always a little jealous of all those ruffled scarves I see in town (but the cost is stupidly high, if you ask me). Anyway, while I'm watching Roswell so far I made these four:

I'm completely in love with them. I tried using a different crochet method, but I didn't exactly love how it looked. This way, however, is very pretty. I still have some yarn left (okay, more, since I bought 10 skeins per color *blushes*) so I was thinking of maybe combining the colors? I'm not sure, but I do love how these scarves turned out Cheesy

I think that it's really pretty looking.
Thank you!

Your afghan turned out very pretty. Depending on the yarn you used you might be able to wash it in the washer.  I wash some of mine in cold water and dry them on the low delicate setting. That's for acrylic yarn though. If you still have the tags/papers from your yarn it should tell you the washing guidelines.

Thank you! uhhh... no, I didn't keep the tags. But I only had indications for the yarn I used in the middle. The yellow one near the end didn't have anything. And there are three types of yarn in there... I think it would be safer if I hand wash it.
