Knitting and crochet collide

Standard

  

I am WIP-less! I just finalized the sewing up of the Unforgettable cowl, which you may recall was going to be a scarf, but I didn’t have the patience for it. 

Today I bound it off, then continued with a crochet hook of the same size (5mm) to single crochet all around the edges. Then, having watched at least three different tutorials on crocodile stitch, I worked three rows of that on one end. The last video said to use a multiple of six, but what he should have said was 6+3, because I didn’t get an odd number of scales in my first row. That means my edges aren’t symmetrical but I decided not to let it bother me.

The two ends were then mattress-stitched together and voilà! All done and now I am FREE to play with a new crochet project. Sorry, knitting, you are a second-class citizen around here at the moment. 

This used about 60grams of Red Heart Boutique Unforgettable in Sunrise. And I can confirm that it is a lot nicer to crochet with than to knit. Also, it breaks quickly if you sew with it, so any long seams would be best made with a different yarn.
