Just for fun ….

…. Pick one of your japanese crochet books …..


…. and choose a very simple pattern, easy to follow when you seat on the couch in the evenings after dinner time ….



Good!!!
Now collect the right hook (4mm) for the suitable yarn ( ROBIN, Double Knit 100% acrylic, 500 gr, shade 1797, lot 786, product code 1467) and start to crochet, with your feet up…..


… at the beginning it seems to work a flower …


…. but after few rows, you start to see the scarf in progress ….





….. and when you reach the end ( for me after 187 rows,  for the pattern after 107! ), you may think that you would love to give the scarf a personal touch, just a little one…..


…. as a "border" ( to reinforce the sides) of slip stitches, with a bright and contrasting colour ( Filati da Collezione "Merinella", colour 36 lot 110, 80% wool and 20% polyamide )….

front of the work

back of the work


…. and then you choose that tassels (made wrapping the yarn 50 times around the cover of a copy book) are better than pom poms ( at least today!), so you add them at the ends of the new scarf …..


…. one pink, the other one grey ( SIRDAR Wash'n'Wear DK Double Crepe, shade 0282, lot 126292 )
……



…. grey as the other side of the scarf ( still, slip stitches! )…




…. all you need now is … to wear it!!!!!! ;oD
