Some Recent Crochet Projects

I haven’t written about crocheting in a while, so if you haven’t been following my blog for long you may not realize that this is a craft that I really enjoy. Unlike last year when I completed a major crochet project, this year I have kept it pretty simple.

When it comes to crocheting, scarves are about as simple as it gets. Below are three of the scarves I have created.

The one on the left is a pattern I made up combining two rows of double crochet followed by two rows of broom stick lace and repeating that pattern throughout.

The one in the middle was a pattern that was on the yarn wrapper. It is a combination of V-stiches and shell stitches. I absolutely love the royal colors of this scarf.

The one on the right is an infinity scarf made using a broom stick lace pattern. It is made with Lion Brand Landscapes yarn and is very soft.

You can probably tell I enjoy using variegated yarn for creating scarves. It is fun to watch the piece come together as the colors transition andΒ each scarf becomes a one of a kind.

Thanks for stopping reading. πŸ™‚

  1. My mom was an avid knitter and tried to teach me several times and I dropped so many stitches that she was constantly having to repair my projects. These are beautiful scarves Ruth. You have so many projects, I don’t know how you fit them all in! I just read the other post – that was such intricate work and a beautiful job. My great grandparents had a farm and after my great grandmother had her foot stomped on while trying to get the horse and buggy ready for church, her injury left her housebound and she took up tatting. I still have a few doilies that she gave to my mom – I know the doilies were made in the late 1940s/early 1950s because she died before I was born in 1956. If you scroll toward the end of this post you will see them – they have held up well: https://lindaschaubblog.net/2017/08/13/dainty-looking-weeds-and-antique-doilies/

    1. Thank you Linda. I also have many doilies that my mother, grandmother and husbands grandmother made.
      It is only because I don’t work for an employer that I have time for so many projects. It’s nice being my own boss.

      1. Your welcome Ruth – I treasure mine and we had several quilts that my grandmother had hand stitched and down comforters filled with feathers from their own geese, but all those items are long gone now, but I remember them from when I was growing up. I look forward to retirement and pursuing some hobbies again like I did before work interfered. πŸ™‚

      2. The feathers were in a dark-gold comforter and I had it on my bed as a child, then my parents discovered I had an allergy to dander, certain feathers and stuffed animals – everything had to go immediately. It was plump with feathers at that time and my parents had it before me. I don’t think it was a large farm so maybe she stored them up for awhile?

    1. I tried teaching myself to knit a couple time but it wasn’t coming along fast enough so I went back to crochet. My mom and grandma did both. Tonight I am going to finish up the jacket and hat I am making for my granddaughter will post pictures soon. Thanks for stopping by.

    1. I don’t mind either of those terms. It is just the term “prepper” than I am not fond of. It sounds very new age and faddish. Being prepared and having self sufficiency skills are nothing new. It was the way of life for our grandparents or great grandparents. Regretfully we (or our parents) abandoned many of their ways and now many are seeking the knowledge that was lost. Thanks for your comment.

    1. Thank you. Made with love is truly the most important. Would it surprise you to know that the V-stitch and shell pattern is made up of all double crochet and chain stitches? Just different combinations. If you can double crochet you are half way there. πŸ˜‰
