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.
