This one is done in Tunisian crochet with a regular Tunisian crochet hook (not a double-ended hook). It is the same on both sides. Most who do Tunisian crochet don’t know it can be reversible like this.
The pics don’t do its colors justice. This bi-colored accessory is in mustard and dusty brown. I love this color combination! The scarf was super simple crocheted all in back loop half double crochet giving it stretch and bounce.
Made yet another scarf in the last 24 hours. I’m blocking three of my creations now. They should be dry by midday or so. Pics to come!
Just a little something I made to pass the time. For some reason it reminds me of peppermint candy canes and cotton candy.
I’m on a scarf kick! I’ve fallen in love with making scarves all over again. They give me a chance to follow a simple stitch pattern and lose myself in the rhythm of the movements. In the past two weeks I’ve made two of them. They are in Tunisian crochet simple stitch with some super easy color changes. (You can click on the pics to enlarge them for better viewing.)
My thanks to nature for help me take these pictures. LOL!
Here are both scarves folded resting gently together on my porch railing.
I’ve been thinking again about opening a Crochet Cafe, an idea I’ve had for about 14 years now. And I have what I think is a cool idea for a scarf project that would be more than just scarves. I’m still thinking about it. :0)
I’m yarning away again…
In a few days I think I’ll post pics of the scarf I completed last week and the one I’m working on now. Instead of trying to accomplish something with crochet, I’m doing what worked so well for me – using it as meditation. I like just doing a repetitive pattern in which I can lose myself and let color bring visual interest to the finished work.
The last several years have been a complete overhaul of life for me. I’m now living in Aiken, SC. And two months ago I moved into a place of my own for the first time in six years. No more being homeless! No more being a guest in someone’s home! No more renting rooms! I am so grateful for the progress I’ve made.
There were plenty of hard times that made me tale a good look at myself and what I was thinking and believing about life. I’ve come back into alignment with my spiritual center and discovered unconditional love and happiness. So, it was all worth it! I’m excited about seeing what life I create now and what creativity comes through me. Let’s just see!
