I only did two crochet projects in 2016 and this is one of them. The pattern was free with the yarn from the Hitchin Festiwool that I attended in November. It was a real fast make and would make a great gift.
Here are the details:
The yarn is Katia Polaris which is 100% acrylic. I don't usually work with acrylic but I really liked the look and feel of this yarn.
The pattern was free with the yarn and is available on their website as a free download.
I used a 5mm hook that the woman at the stall recommended. The pattern states 3.5mm which was way too small when I tried it.
I used the holeless (can that be a word?) method of turning for the first time and WOW what a difference it made to the edges of my work. Here is the tutorial I used.
This little scarf has slipped into my work wardrobe so well. It's perfect to keep the chill off my shoulders in the air conditioned office and gets a lovely compliment every time I wear it! Win win :)
