A couple of days ago, I started crocheting a ruana type wrap from the blog, Your Everyday Heirlooms. It’s called the Boho Cozy Wrap and is basically a rectangle with a split in it so that the back is all one piece and the front is divided. I had the link in here, lost it, and now I can’t seem to add it…Grrrr! (ETA: link now added)
I grabbed all my worsted weight yarn, all three bags of it, took out the cream, and started in on it. I have made mine larger, a decision which I may come to regret if the thing ends up dragging close to the floor! Instead of 142 chain, I started with about 200. It’s just half doubles back and forth and to contain the randomness a little I’m using regular(ish) stripes of a tweedy green and a black.
Two days of crocheting have yielded a piece that’s 73″ long by 7.5″ wide. It’s actually a perfect scarf size right now. I’m second-guessing my choice to leave in the yellow and pale green (the latter is showing as a very obvious bright strip in the photo) so now I wonder whether I should just continue to make a solid rectangle and call it a blanket.
I don’t know if I’ll wear it out and about with the current colour combo though I am of the opinion that the more colours you put together the less any one of them will stand out as not fitting in.
I don’t have to decide yet though. There are 20 rows done and at least 20 more to go until the instructions for the neck division so I shall mull it over as I crochet.
