Just browsing trough the pages of this Japanese crochet book …
… I found a lovely pattern for a simple scarf ( picture on page 3, pattern/chart on page 36) ….
I chose, for the body of the scarf, to crochet with a 3,5mm hook a warm yellow yarn by katia (Merino Blend, 55% merino and 45% acrylic, colour 19, tint/dye-lot 47988)….
…. you can see very well the polka dots pop out from the filet background ….
…. especially, when the fabric is backlit on the back of an old wooden chair ….
For the border I decided to use a contrasting yarn ( still katia, but Oxford, 50% wool, 45% acrylic, 5% viscose, colour 207, tint./dye-lot 48080A) in blue ….
I could go on forever in taking photos ….
…. and this is how I presented the gifts to my mum …. headband and golden scarf ….
