Scarf

Hi! I'm Hope. I've been here a week or so but this is my first post. Like so many of you, I got VLT as a Christmas gift: I guess we were all good last year!

I am currently working on "Scarf." That is the name of this pattern "scarf"




This yarn is Bernat Crochet Cotton a 70/30 blend of Cotton and Acrylic. It looks very nice on the body of the scarf, but I'm not sure about the ends. They need to open up a bit and I'm not sure it's going to block. I knew it was a risky choice when I started it, though; I think I was just dazzled by the shiny chocolate color.

Although this is my first project from this book, in a way it is my second, because last year I made Victorian Ruby when it first appeared in Knitter's Magazine



For it I used the requisite Kidsilk Haze, which I love, in the color "liqueur." I wear this scarf almost every day. I am so excited to make more that are similar.

My next project is going to be the melon shawl. For it, I ordered some Crystal Palace Kid Merino in the roses variegated shade. I can't wait!

I'm so glad to see someone has made the "scarf", as I want to make it also. I think it looks nice in the brown. The liquer KSH scarf is also beautiful! I'm looking forward to seeing your version of the melon shawl. Happy Knitting!

Your scarf looks good - I hope it blocks out for you.

I love that ruby - it's gorgeous!

Your Victorian Ruby dazzles the eye, but that chocolate brown "Scarf" soothes the soul.

That chocolate "scarf" is gorgeous! yummy yummy yummy! I hope you're happy with it when it blocks, but for me, it's stunning as is...

I think blocking will definitely help give it a finished look. I really like that you chose an usual yarn for a lacey scarf.
