For the March scarf I decided on a lengthways design. It takes a little time to get started and you need a little care when counting your foundation chain (stitch markers help).
As spring starts in March (here in the UK) I thought I should move to a lighter yarn, so I chose a 4 ply with silk content. The scarf is long enough to wrap round your neck a couple of times for warmth on chilly days, but is also suitable for those warmer spring days when you don't want too much around your neck. It uses just under one 100g skein of 4 ply yarn.
The scarf is approx. 14 cm (51/2") wide by 200 cm (78") long when blocked.
As usual, it is written in English and US crochet terms, and is charted.

Like many I took a couple of decades off my knitting and crochet whilst my working life took over, but now I am catching up. I always have a hook or pair of needles close by; my fingers do not like to rest. After reacquainting myself with my old hobbies, I progresed to creating my own designs. It seemed a natural progression for me, as did running crochet workshops in the NW of England.
Those who have tried my designs will know that I love creating simple designs that look very effective, after all life doesn't need to be complicated! And I understand that many people like a bit of television or music knitting/crochet, so the easier they are the better it is to enjoy the world around you whilst enjoying your craft.
