This is my Mellow Sunday Shawl by Alia Bland. I want to start by telling you how amazing this is to hook, how simple, yet stunningly beautiful. I want to tell you how deliciously soft scheepjes… More
Here is a quick pattern for a necklace scarf.
A simple but stunning item that you can make if you are new to crochet, or have an odd 50g ball of chunky yarn that your not sure what to do with, or if you need to hand make a present emergency style!
Yep, this beauty takes about an hour to make at most and the pattern (if you can call it that!) is just below.
You will need 50g of chunky yarn and a large hook. I used
and a 6mm hook.
So you have probably guessed it….begin making chains and don’t stop until you have about 50cms of yarn left.
Randomly tie the first part of a bow to form a loose knot in your chains at random sections down its length.
Now join with a slip stitch into the very first chain to make an enormous loop.
It may be a good idea to secure the stitch with a stitch marker or safety pin so that your chains do not unravel during the next part.
Now find something to put your enormous loop of chains around… I used the stair post at the bottom of the stairs.
Start to make the loop smaller by crossing over the chains and hooking back over the post…or whatever you are using. Repeat the process until you have a handful of loops; that when placed around your neck fall just at the top of your tummy.
Next, you need to secure your loops together. To do this
remove the stitch marker / safety pin and reinsert your hook.
Pull the loop onto your hook to make the yarn looser. Now complete a giant double crochet (single crochet – American terms)… to do this take your hook under the handful of looped chains, yarn round hook and pull through, yarn round hook and pull through 2 loops on hook. Repeat x 9 more times. Fasten off and weave in any loose ends.
Told you it hooked up quick!
Day 28 of
and this is the final day!!
The theme for today is ‘favourite thing I’ve made’.
Now really…do I have to choose?
Ok…well just for today this is my favourite hook up,
because I adore the colours and that bobble edge border is just sooo super cute, and possibly the most addictive thing ever to hook. Seriously, it should come with a warning!
Day 26 of
