Bloomin Scarf

Hello Ladies,
Bit behind on this weeks CAL.
The days are rushing past and it's as if I lost some, one moment it's Monday
then the weekend is here again.
So for this weeks Bloomin CAL I have a scarf to show you.
I wanted to make a scarf for my son as part of his Christmas
presents, but couldn't really see anything I liked out there that
seemed manly enough. Then while I was out I spotted a scarf thar was grey,
black and purple. This was the scarf I needed. So I came home and dug
out my yarn. I had it all except for the purple, which going online and
ordering doesn't take long. 
So after undoing this, which was my holiday flop.

And adding my other colours, I made this.

It's made using 4ply Merino and half trebles.
As I wanted the stripes to go length ways I made a chain of 380 and just
half trebled away, making my stripes various widths.
It was lovely to work on, not a lot of concentration needed.
So with this probably being the busiest month of the year, it
was nice just to sit down of an evening relax and watch a bit of T.V.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend.

  4. That's a lovely scarf. I crocheted something similar recently. Lengthwise stripes are easy even for a beginner like me.

    1. Thanks Una, and even though I crocheted it lengthwise, it seemed to grow quickly.
