Circle Crochet Scarf

I know it's unusual to post on a Saturday, but I wanted to show something nice. First of, thanks again for all your warm well wishes for Biko, she'll need it, and we all appreciate it very much! I'll let you know how everything goes, next week.

A couple of days ago I finished the circle crochet scarf. It was fun to do, and in the end even my hands didn't hurt as much anymore. Being crochet though, it IS a little stiffer, than knitted fabric. I put it around my neck, and it felt lovely, but heavy. I've used another colorway of Elann's Endless Summer Luna, not "my" color, but it's going to be a gift anyway. Making this scarf made me want to do another crochet project, and there are already a few on my to-do list.


pattern: Circle Crochet Scarf by Michelle Gibbs (you'll find it on ravelry or on her blog)
yarn: 4.25 balls/ 463.25yds of Endless Summer Luna, 57% Viscose 43% cotton
hook: G 4mm
size: 5.5" x 56"

I think you're the first finished scarf. I love that shade of pink! I'm glad it's cozy, but that's too bad about the weight. Hopefully the recipient likes it. :-)

The scarf is so pretty and girlie!

I'm glad Biko isn't serious and I hope she's a new pup after next Thursday!

That's such an interesting stitch pattern -- I like the end result a lot. I think it's amazing how different knit and crochet seem even though they're so similar.

Toll ist er geworden, dein Haekelschal.
Muster und Farbe sind genau mein Geschmack.

Liebe Monika,
der Schal ist wunderschön. Es gibt schon wirklich ausgefallene Muster beim Häkeln. Dieses hier gefällt mir ganz besonders gut.
Wieder mal eine tolle Arbeit. Wie geht's Deinen Handgelenken? Du wirst doch bestimmt zur Entspannung lieber wieder was stricken, nicht wahr?
Liebe Grüße und bis bald
Susanne

The pink scarf looks so Valentiny. I might have to try it with my recently developed crochet skills.

Heike said...

Das Muster sieht sehr interessant aus - aber auch ziemlich kompliziert. Allerdings reizt es mich echt, es auch einmal zu versuchen...

Der Schal ist sehr schön geworden!

Ich drücke Biko ganz fest die Daumen, dass die OP erfolgreich verläuft und sie bald wieder schmerzfrei rumhüpfen kann.

Viele Grüße und viel Kraft schickt Heike

Dear Monika:
I trust you will soon be better for Biko, certainly everything will be well.
The scarf and small heart pillows are lovely.
Hugs for Biko, Sam and you.

Toll geworden, Dein rosa Häkelschal! Ist schon ungewöhnlich, dass Du mal was gehäkelt hast. Aber warum eigentlich nicht, ist mal was anderes.

Ich drücke die Daumen ganz feste, dass Biko den Eingriff gut übersteht und dass sie danach wieder fit und schmerzfrei ist.

Lovely scarf! I think I'll just have to queue that!
