While my other window works away on importing a photo, which seems to be taking longer than it should, I thought I’d write this post to show two views of the crocheted neckwarmer I made last night. I had this burgundy elann Micro Cotton sitting around, along with some contrasting colours in the same yarn. It’s nice and soft and good for wearing next to the skin. I had a couple of false starts, first with knitting needles, then with the crochet hook, because I didn’t like the initial results.
This is made with alternating rows of single/half double/double crochet (double, half treble, treble if you’re in the UK) with a couple of rows of contrast thrown in every now and then. I haven’t woven in the ends yet because I’m still trying to decide whether I like it and whether it’s good enough to give to a friend as a birthday gift.
I think it’ll look nicer when washed and blocked, but for now I need some opinions to help me decide whether to give it away, keep it or frog it! I will of course be adding a nice big button to it and all those naturally occurring holes will offer opportunities for different buttoning options.
I am attempting to set up a poll in that aforementioned other window so wish me luck at getting my first ever poll published successfully!
