I hope you are having a fantastic week. I am unemployed this week, so it has been a fun week for me. I have spent a lot of time in the sun and walking. I am on a serious job hunt though too, so if you hear of any office work, let me know. But for now, more time to crochet!
Last week I mentioned that I had been working on a project that requires the use of the Picot Crochet stitch, and here it is. The Meadowlark Triangle Scarf by Hailey Bailey. At the end of last year, I really wanted a triangle scarf, and I stumbled onto this one. I liked it because it was simple, but textured, and had the drape that I was looking for.
I started by making a single color scarf, like the one that Hailey designed, I wanted to make something lighter. I had some Loops and Threads Impeccable in Aran and I thought it would be a good fit. I like how the yarn worked up into the project.
However, I determined that I wanted to something a little bit more dynamic. Keeping with the Loops and Thread Impeccable family, I really love the Ombre color Stillness, so I thought it would make a great accent color for this project. I also wanted the scarf to be a bit looser, so I changed crochet hooks on the second scarf from the recommended L to an M.
I am happy with both, but I love how this second one turned out.
So what do you all think? Like the solid or the mixed colored better? Have a triangle scarf pattern that you would recommend? Let’s Talk!
