Sewing in ends has to be my least favourite thing, if someone invented a gadget that would do it for you, I'd be be buying it. This scarf is intended to be worn this winter, there is a good chance winter might be over by the time I've gotten round to finishing it.
This scarf was mostly made (the pale green) with a lovely aran yarn I purchased at Yarndale, from the Eden Cottage Yarns stand. I have been guilty in the past of buying wool in a beautiful skein and then not doing anything with it. This time though I had a plan, I already had a selection of orphaned balls of green wool at home, but not enough to make a long scarf. I like the kind you can wrap around a few times. So at Yarndale I was on a mission to find exactly the right wool to complete my scarf project.
The pattern is pretty simple, 21 stitches wide made with a 5 mm hook . The majority of the pattern was 3 rows of treble crochet, 4th row in the back loop of the previous row to create the ridged effect, rows 5-6 standard treble crochet as rows 1-3. I alternated colours to create the stripes. It will be really warm when it's finished.
