Now that the Olympics are over it was time to move on to some other crochet and knitting projects. St. Patricks Day is coming soon so I started this lace knit infinity scarf the last couple of days of watching the Olympics. I finished it a few days ago and wanted to share it on my blog.
I really like how my new design turned out. The yarn I use is the Hobby Lobby I Love This Yarn – a soft worsted weight yarn. Both yarns are in the sparkle version so the green and the white both have metallic silver thread in the yarn – you can kind of see it in the close up photo below. I only did a small amount of white since that is what I had leftover from making my Olympic projects. I also like the length – it can be worn long as a stylish accessory or doubled for warmth.
The knitting stitch I used for this pattern reminds me of crochet. I really like the openwork of the pattern. I am currently designing another infinity scarf – cowl using the same pattern mixed with another stitch and I really like how it is turning out. I will be sharing that on my blog soon so check back often to see what is new.
Have a great day!
I recently stumbled upon a facebook page called Frayed Knot by Jonna and learned about a crochet challenge. The challenge is called the Design Wars Challenge . The challenge is to create a crochet item using Red Heart With Love yarn. I decided to design a new crochet pattern for a cowl, or infinity scarf, since I happen to have one skein of this yarn in a deep purple color. Here is the design I will be entering in the challenge:
I really like how my pattern turned out and it can be worn long or double wrapped for warmth. The yarn is a worsted weight acrylic yarn and very easy to work with. I plan to have the pattern available soon in my etsy shop and on craftsy. I was so excited about finishing it and I wanted to get it entered in the challenge and share it here on my blog first.
This challenge is for the whole month of February and you can click on the link above to learn more about it if you are interested in entering.
What crochet or knitting projects are you currently working on? I am crocheting a new infinity scarf that is in Olympic USA team colors. I got inspired to make something red, white and blue after the opening ceremony and seeing their cool sweaters and hats that they wore. I have been working on it the last few nights while watching the games. I hope to have it done in the next few days and share it on my blog soon.
