I crocheted this up this weekend for my mum's birthday today:

Thankfully she loved it, however it has taught me that there's always new things to learn...

1) If you buy 1970's yarn from a clearout sale; you have what you have, no ordering extras
2) A ball of yarn (especially if fluffy) always looks like it will be longer than what it is
3) Cutting back crochet and crocheting over the edge is a royal pain in the 'harris'
4) Hand wash really means hand wash, NOT the hand wash setting on the washer
5) Mohair should come with a face mask - I swear I'm still coughing up and sneezing fluff...

It was a really simple increase pattern that I kind of made up as I went along, but if anyone would like extra info/tute, I'm happy to provide.

With normal wool, I could have probably knocked it up in a few hours, so not difficult at all really.

C and C's welcome as always!

Thanx for looking  Grin

Things I learned not to do: Thank you. I'm sure I will forget half of them, but at least I will have some vicarious learning!

Look twice, buy once. Nooooo
Look twice, decide I can make one instead.

I always like to forget that hand wash difference. Looks like a lovely scarf.

I'm sleeping. Bother me in the morning.

I really like how you use two colors to crochet this scarf! It looks so chic and versatile thing Kiss If you can give some instruction I will appreciate it a lot. I wish to make several in different colors for myself and as gifts for my friends.
