I lucked into tons of high-quality yarn for a mere 50 cents a skein a few weeks ago at my local Goodwill -- Alpaca, merino, wool blends, cottons and some other unusual yarns - including 2 skeins of recycled sari yarn (I walked out with more than 30 skeins).  I'm still learning, so I started off with this bright yellow cotton from Greece.  It's an adaptation of a Queen Anne pattern I found on Ravelry - I just made the part at the neck a bit plainer with a picot edge.


The sari yarn was a bit difficult to work with -- I meant to make a bag, but wound up with a beanie & skinny scarf. They are both double crochet - the hat has 2 rounds of mesh, then a round of single crochet at the opening.

I can't believe this hasn't been commented on!  The scarf is so intricate-looking, and I'm sure it adds a lot to even the simplest outfit.  Also, I really like the beanie in the second photo.  The colors are so vibrant!

Thanks for your nice comments. The sari yarn is basically a lot of thread twisted together quite tightly and is thicker at some points - it tended to twist up between the ball and the hook and have to be unwound a bit as I worked. Kind of a pain.
