Yarn Along

 
I am a woman on a mission this week, using the Sara Huntington's pattern in Issue 28 of Simply Crochet I have completed the frilled neckerchief.  It is worked in rows and then a ruffle added at the end.  I am quite pleased with the overall effect. 
 


 
I didn't use the yarn recommended by the pattern but I think it was a good result anyway and looks quite stylish.  The yarn is so soft and a mixture of vibrant colours so it will bring to life a plain jumper or jacket come the Autumn. 
 
I have also crocheted up a scarf using a Rachelle Blondel pattern.  It was so simple and quick to make up and has such a lovely chunky texture.  All that it needs is some lace to finish it off. 
 
 
I love the vintage feeling that this portrays.
 

 
Decisions, decisions I can't decide which trim to use...
 
I would definitely use both patterns again they are both quite stylish and simple to crochet up, the one with the vintage trim is such a quick make taking one evening to do.   
 
I have been a little remiss on the reading front and have only managed a few pages here and there this week.  I am still reading The Snow Geese.
 
I am joining Ginny over at Small Things for the weekly yarn along, why not pop over and see what everyone else has on there hooks/needles.  gsheller.com
 
See you soon.

    1. I haven't kept the wrapper but it was Monsoon yarn, 25% wool and 75% acrylic. It was soft and squishy and draped wonderfully.

  13. The neckerchief is such lovely colours. You have been busy this week. The weather here in Liverpool is cold and wet so I could do with something warm and snuggly for my neck.

  21. I agree lovely colours. My goal this year was to either learn to knit or crochet. I started with the knitting, and hope to conquer crochet next year.

  28. I love the neckerchief! The scarf is lovely as well! I think the lace with the smaller motif would work the best with the scarf, but either would be very nice.

  29. I like them both. And for trim my eye kept going the scallop edge one. Love the colors in your neckerchief.
