12  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Ruffled Scarves on: August 16, 2013 03:16:39 AM
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.

I wanted to do an afghan for so long and when I started searching for a pattern, this one from Lion Brand caught my eye: http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/kew-gardens-afghan

Anyway, this is what I ended up with:

It's made out of scraps of yarn and some really old yarn I had (well, the yellow yarn close to the border actually belonged to my mom, but since she wasn't using it - not for lack of trying, let me tell you - I decided to add it to my project). I hate that it's starting to curl, though I'm thinking it's because I worked about 52 rows. Way more than what the pattern says. Anyway, I wanted to make it big enough to fit my bed, but I decided against it when I saw how curly it got.

BUT it is comfy and warm. I didn't block it though, since I don't have a board this big and I didn't want to iron it either... I figure it will set once I wash it, though I'm not sure if I should wash it in the washing machine  Huh

I finally managed to complete a knitting project. I found the pattern on Ravelry. It's a free pattern from Lion Brand. I love how it turned out. Hope you like it too.  Smiley

It's gorgeous! I love it and love the colors.

I finished these two scarves a while ago but I forgot to take pictures. I really like how they turned out.

This first one wasn't as hard to do as I thought it would be. What I didn't expect was the number of skeins I used for it. It's short, but it took 6 skeins, so I decided to leave it this way.

The second one I found on Ravelry. It's a free pattern. At first I wanted to do only the wristlets, but I thought it would be cool to have a matching set with a scarf. Now if only I could find a similar pattern for a hat (I'm bad at improvising) I'd be very happy Cheesy

Hope you liked them. I bought the yarns for both projects at the Euro shop, each skein for one euro.

Here is my Luna scarf, take 2!


As you can see, I did it right this time...


Now, should I wash it or something? It seems slightly stiff and twisty, so would washing it soften it up a bit?

Edit: I made it link to normal sized pictures instead of thumbnails like it was before. Smiley

I love the first one!

I for one washed and ironed both my scarves and are now very soft. I let them dry and covered them with a wet cloth and ironed them (actually mom gave me that idea *blush*) plus, I think ironing gave them a "finished" look.

Czanna, Great color!

blue.starlight, I agree, the color is lovely! I never would have thought to work it in 2 thinner colors of yarn. That opens up a whole world of possibilities!

Thanks! I didn't think of it either. As new as I am at crocheting, I didn't even thought it would matter if the thread was thin or not.

It sure does...and also, I was thinking of adding beads but the yarn needs to be thin...hmmm ideas abound!

(does anyone else want her ironing board cover as well?... Cheesy)

Now I didn't think about bead, but it sure sounds fun. Might try it, after I finish the project I'm on.
