While I ponder what to do with some really bright pink yarn that I recently rescued, I have been busy crocheting this scarf. I used up most of the red wool that was left over after I knitted a boy's jumper.
This is one of my favourite crochet scarf patterns as it suits my abilities. For some reason, I don't have any problems at the start and end of each row. I think it is because the pattern is so well written and illustrated.. Here is the link.
For this scarf I used 136g of dk wool and a 5mm crochet hook. That produced a scarf measuring 5" x 55". This is intended for a child and will eventually go off to Operation Orphan. The yarn is 85% real wool and 15% nylon so it should be very warm and hard-wearing.
I now have just 25g of this wool left. So it will probably reappear one day as a stripe or two.
