A friend bought these for me last Christmas. She is not a knitter or crocheter so you have to think they were nice choices but it has been hard to find a pattern that they will all actually fit into.
DMC Natura is a cotton yarn with a matt finish, this one is medium weight but it comes in other gauges. It does split a bit but it has good stitch definition.
After the triumph of Heidi's Road Trip scarf, I decided to try holding two strands together to give it a whirl myself using a 5.5mm hook. I don't have a crochet project on the go at the moment so I dived in with no plan whatsoever. Who me?
I tried to spread the colours out but wanted to definitely have a pink edge so that I could wear it with my pink cords.
I added the dangly bits which included a couple of bells and as many flowers as the last scraps of yarn allowed. I added the button on the long edge so that I could wear it in different ways using it as a hook for the scarf.
I liked the way it looked mostly pink by using only one ball to create this effect along with the mink and brown.
Success I would say. I really like it and it was fun to make. It only took two nights of crochet. You can find a similar pattern here.
