I like Kit-Kat, unless I'm with 4 or more people.

Here's an incredibly quick stash-busting project that happens to also be kinda cute.



Materials:

1 skein Lion Brand Heartland in Yosemite (or 250 yds of any other color worsted weight yarn)
1 (partial) skein Studio Classic by Nicole in White (or about 200 yds of any other worsted weight yarn in white)
Small amount of any worsted weight yarn in Black
Size J/6 mm hook
An afternoon with tea and most any Colin Firth movie or an evening with wine and most any Colin Firth movie.
Finished Size: 48" wingspan, 28" from center top to bottom peak.

This is a very vanilla pattern that is perfect for either a beginner crocheter or a seasoned hooker that might need a super quick gift. The entire shawl is worked in double crochet in back-and-forth rows, and the eyes are double crochet in the round. Easy peasy!

Ch 4, sl st in first ch to make a loop.

Row 1: Ch 3 (this will count as the first dc on this row and every additional row), (2 dc, ch-2, 3 dc) in loop. You will have 6 dc and 1 ch-2 space.

Row 2: Ch 3, turn, dc in same stitch as ch 3, dc in next 2 dc, (2 dc, ch-2, 2 dc) in ch-2 sp, dc in next 2 dc, 2 dc in top of ch 3. Now there's 12 dc and 1 ch-2 sp.

Rows 3-22: Ch 3, turn, dc in same st as ch 3, dc in each st across to ch-2 sp, (2 dc, ch-2, 2 dc) in ch-2 space, dc in each st across to end, 2 dc in top of ch 3. 132 dc and 1 ch-2 sp at end of row 22. This is where my 251 yds of orange yarn ran out, so I fastened off the orange, switched to white and continued on. If you'd like a larger shawl, this is where you can keep on crocheting and switch to the white yarn whenever you feel like it.

Row 23: Attach white yarn, ch 3, dc in same st as ch 3, dc in next 59 st. Change to black yarn and dc in next 6 st, (2 dc, ch-2, 2 dc) in ch-2 sp, dc in next 6 st. Attach white yarn again and dc in each dc to end, 2 dc in top of ch 3.

Row 24: Ch 3, turn, dc in same st as ch 3, dc in next 61 dc. Change to black yarn and dc in next 7 st, (2dc, ch-2, 2 dc) in ch-2 sp, dc in next 7 st. Attach white yarn and dc in each st to end, 2 dc in top of ch 3.

Row 25: Ch 3, dc in same st as ch 3, dc in next 64 st. Change to black yarn and dc in next 7 st, (2 dc, ch-2, 2 dc) in ch-2 sp, dc in next 7 st. Attach white yarn and dc in each st to end, 2 dc in top of ch 3.

Rows 26-30: Ch 3, dc in same st as ch 3, dc in each st across to ch-2 sp, (2dc, ch-2, 2 dc) in ch-2 sp, dc in each st across to end, 2 dc in top of ch 3.  Fasten off.

Eyes (make 2): With black yarn and size J hook, make a magic loop.
Round 1: 6 dc inside loop. Pull yarn tail to close. You will be working in a spiral so there's no seam.
Round 2: 2 dc in each st around. You will have 12 dc.
Round 3: [(2 dc), 1 dc] 6 times. 18 dc
Round 4: [(2 dc) 2 dc] 6 times. 24 dc
Round 5: Change to white yarn and sc in each st around. Fasten off.
Sew eyes onto scarf, weave in ends, and admire your work! Hopefully your daughter won't walk by and comment on "the weird Dorito" you've just finished like mine did. Happy hooking!

I got 99 problems, but a stitch ain't one.

There's not much in this world that can't be improved by either chocolate, bacon or glitter.
