Hooked!

My latest project is a step outside my comfort zone … it has been a while since I crocheted and it is long overdue.

The yarn is Lana Grossa Shades of Cotton, in the 101 colourway. It works up as double knit weight, but is made up of 4 fine strands to create a subtle colour change which somehow transitions from turquoise to orange over the course of the 200g skein. Clever!

I am crocheting a scarf from the accompanying German pattern booklet – it is design number 7, Schmaler Schal im Wellenmuster, which showcases the yarn beautifully.

It may take a while, as each row is very long and needs attention, but I’ll get there!

Happy crocheting!

    Iโ€™m trying to get the hang of the different crochet stitches myself. This looks really pretty. Looking forward to seeing the finished scarf ๐Ÿงฃ

    I love those colours, and the chevron pattern will really make them sing (I’m a bit of chevron addict …)

    Looks beautiful! Wishing you contented crocheting. I would love to make it myself, and I do have one ball of the Shades of Cotton, but the flyer does not seem to be available for purchase in the U.S.! ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

    Ooh, isn’t that pretty?! I keep eyeing this kind of ball that is now available all over the place, petting it and then putting it back, thinking I wouldn’t knit it anyway. But crochet… hm. Though I should finish the big one I started first, ends and edging to do!! And chevrons…. ooh, ideas ideas…. ๐Ÿ™‚
