Well … after being cooped up inside because of the Blizzard 2016, I made the most of that time by catching up on projects … starting new ones … or just playing with yarn.
So here’s what I was able to work on this past weekend.
And seeing the finished width, before wet-finishing, I think I’m going to need a fourth panel so that it covers at least a single or twin bed. Maybe a fifth …
The Double-layered Braided Cowl is the latest trend going around the crochet forums. I had seen the pattern on my newsfeed, and it was the first time that I wanted to pick up hook and yarn and make one right now, instead of just saving the pattern for a later day. So, after the initial fiddling about, I came up with a cowl, an experimental earwarmer with three braids, and an experimental earwarmer with chunky yarn! How about that!
Oh, wait … so now I have a set of earwarmer, hat, and neckwarmer/cowl in the same chunky yarn!
I’m adding this in, although I finished this a couple of weeks ago. The Granny Shrug – I can’t find where I got this from, but if you google the Granny Shrug, you’ll get to the website. It’s basically a big granny, then fold it in half to form a rectangle. Then sew about 20 inches of one edge, which will form the sleeves. I added a cuff to the sleeve, to make it longer. I ran out of the black yarn, so I added the purple to finish it. I could have stopped with the black, but then it would reach just by the waist, and I wanted it longish. On the other hand, making it that big turned out to be a bit over-sized for me – it fits my colleague perfectly, though, as she’s taller and bigger than I am. So now I want to make a smaller one that will fit me better, but long enough as well.
So that’s my show and tell for the Blizzard projects.
What did you work on?
