Colourful crochet

This was a relatively quick project – about 6 or 7 hours from start to finish, completed in half hours bursts. Each row was VERY long – 2.16 metres of crochet, and the fringes make the final scarf 2.58 metres in total.

The wool is Drops Big Delight in the Sunrise colourway, 100% wool in an aran weight.ย I love the colours and I’m sure this scarf will brighten any grey winter days!

Have you finished a project this week? I’d love to hear all about it!

    Absolutely what we need at this time of year – and how well it looks against the blue of your carpet.

    It’s beautiful! Could you write to me the pattern, and how many drops delight yarn need for this project? (2 or 3?) ๐Ÿ™‚

      Thanks Heni! I used 2 balls of yarn. I didn’t have a pattern. There are 165 (UK) trebles over 9 rows.I added a border (UK double crochet plus 2 chains) all around, before adding some long fringes. You needn’t do the border? I can’t remember what size hook I used – perhaps a 10 mm? I hope this helps! Please send me a photo of your finished scarf – I’d love to see!
