Now as most of you will know, if you do one thing for one child the other soon starts nagging, so the second scarf was set in motion as soon as the first was finished and again I chose Stylecraft Special, simply because it won't have the 'itch' factor and also it CAN be WASHED! (I know you are reading this ;-)).
I love these colours, they are very autumnal and look so inviting. Once I showed him the colours, he was completely in love with it and he lay it out for me in the order he wanted it (this boy has style) and I think the end result is rather lovely. I didn't follow a pattern for this, I just wanted a simply block scarf, with some blocks being slightly bigger than others. So if you are interested in making this scarf, here is a very brief pattern.
Do 15 rows of treble crochet (or double if you are in the US).
Remember to do your 3 chain- turning chain or use the alternative to the churning chain that I blogged about here, which gives the link on how to do it.
At the end introduce a new colour and then do 12 rows of trebles (UK) or double (US).
Continue alternating between 15 rows of trebles and 12 rows of trebles until your scarf is the desired length. I did 11 blocks in total and made the darker colours more dominant by doing 15 rows of blue and green and 12 of brown and cream.
I didn't want a border on this scarf, but that's a matter of taste and preference. If I did this for myself or a woman I most probably would add a border (not that I want to genderise here), but I love the rustic look of it for a man, or little man shall I say.
Over and above this I also made a crocheted cowl from the same Granny Square book. For this I used Debbie Bliss Winter Garden, which is a very chunky wool and works up really quickly. It is something you can make in an evening. You only need one skein of this yarn to do this pattern and you will have a little left for another small project.
To the right of the picture is this months Treacle market purchase, and Edwardian keeper shelves. I promise to do a Treacle market post soon, but before then I will be back for my 'Friday Bake' and promise to have a button ready for the grab on Friday if any of you fancy joining in. If you haven't read this post about the 'Friday Bake', you can read more here or tune in on Friday this week.
Thank you very much for all your lovely comments on my Stitching Sunday, you certainly know how to make a gal feel happy! Wishing you all a very happy October.
