Happy New Year and my purple obsession

New crocheted scarf # who knows?

I said small projects, now I make only scarves;) And a headband.

So, I listed the red one, now let me introduce you another 3;))

The brown one, made with 6.5 mm (K) crochet hook and a soft bulky wool. It’s so called interlocking crochet. I made a mesh and then I inserted the Big Bang Alize yarn. I wanted some pompons yarn, but I didn’t find it. I will try it some other time:

scarf 11 scarf 0 scarf

Made with a 5 mm hook and Alize Angora ( suitable to 1-4 crochet hook), alternating stitches. (Tip: use a bigger hook then specified on label to be more lacy, or a smaller, if you don’t  like lace crochet).

Gauge: not important

Chain 250

Row 1: 1 dc in each ch.  250 dc. [UK: 1 treble in each ch, 250 tr].

Next rows:

I used some cluster flowers (modified):

pattern 1

I inserted 10 dc [ UK treble] between flowers and in the middle I joined with sc [hdc].

Instead of  1 dc, ch 1 [ 1 tr ch 1], I made 1 sc, ch 1 [1 tr, ch 1].

Next row – broomstick lace: ( without a broom: ch 3, * pick up 4 loops from each next 4 st, yarn over, pull yarn through 4 loops on the hook, yarn over, draw yarn through last 2 loops on hook; turn those 4 loops to see the middle and work 4 sc [hdc] in the middle*, repeat *_* until the end of the row, finish with 1 dc.

Here is a Teresa Richardson’ s tutorial for broomstick lace, if you own one, or you can use a piece of cardboard…



Next row: Cross stitch

Next row: 1 dc in each st.

Another row of broomstick lace.

Next row : ch 3, *3 dc tog in the next st, ch 1, skip 1 st, cross st, 3 dc tog in the next st*; repeat until the end of the row. Finish with 1 dc.

[ch 3, *3 tr tog, ch 1, skip 1 st, cross st, 3 tr tog in the next st*; repeat *_* and finish row with tr].

Last row: 1 dc in each st. [ 1 tr in each st].


Work broomstick lace all around. In the corners: 1 dc, ch 3, 1 dc. [1 tr, ch 3, 1 tr].
