So, a lovely customer purchased the lilac shawl a few weeks back. And then afterwards asked me to make a scarf in the same pattern and colour yarn. I don’t get commissions often, so this was lovely to receive.
Now, the fun part of this was working out changing a pattern that is worked from the tip of a triangle to a pattern worked along a long crochet chain.
I tried a couple of samples, working along a chain, and then working from the tip again, but at the point that the width was right, to start to come back in to form a rectangle.
That didn’t work so well, so the long chain was the winner. Because I hate creating a long chain and having to work into said chain I decided to do a foundation double crochet chain instead. what this did was add a nice wide edge to the scarf and gave it some structure.
i worked a double crochet on the other long edge of the last row, then added some fans for the ends. It turned out lovely and the customer was very happy.
Now, I need to get back to some weaving, and also some quilting, and gardening and where is the time I need for all this!
I was in London this week and stayed at the Intercontinental and they had these amazing flower displays with jasmine which filled the lobby with perfume.
Have a lovely weekend.
