Craft-Along Friday: Crochet Update!
My Learn-to-Crochet progress continues!
I’ve completed my first official Finished Crochet Object! (TaDa!) Can you tell what it is?
It’s the Crocheted Mobius Chunky Scarf by Craftsy Designer Creative Design. I used one partial hank of KnitPicks Biggo in Calypso Heather and one partial hank of KnitPicks Biggo in Forest Heather. (This yarn is finer in gauge than that specified in the pattern, so I chained more sts to start & used an “N” hook.)
The pattern was easy and quick! In just about 2 hours I had a finished scarf! I even started on another one, but tried to make it in round and ended up with a blob…so I’ll have to start that one over! I still have a LOT to learn!
Here’s a better photo:
The KnitPicks Biggo is really soft and works well with the crochet hook. I didn’t have any problems with it at all in terms of splitting or not being able to get the hook through the stitches.
I haven’t lived up to my plan to take Linda’s Crochet Beyond Rectangles, but I hope to do so this week! You can still take it along with me for $29.99, though! (If you don’t see the sale price, clear your browser’s cache and hit refresh.)
Crocheters: What factors do you look for when choosing a yarn? Affordability? Wash-ability? A certain texture in the yarn itself?
