Crochet: The Schoolie Scarf
Is a shawl/scarf I made in May, but for a number
has only just made it onto
The Schoolie Scarf?
Is it the same colour as your old school uniform?
I know a lot of people
have issues with wearing their old colours, but I am more than
happy to wear bottle green.
It’s quite a chunky knit for you, isn’t it?
Tell me about it.
I normally use a hook range of 2mm-4mm,
but for this pattern I used 10mm!
It was very awkward.
It felt like I was crocheting with an oar.
I guess the only way to get over that, is to crochet
with larger hooks…more often.
And try knitting again?
Funny so should say that.
I recently bought some bamboo knitting needles,
and a Japanese knitting book.
I can’t wait to see how that works out.
It might work.
I couldn’t crochet until I started using
Japanese crochet books.
True, I say go for it.
I haven’t had a good laugh since…well, the last time
you tried to knit.
I knew I could count on your support…(sigh)
I have always got your back!
Thanks…see you next week.
The Schoolie Scarf pattern is from a Japanese crochet book ISBN: 978-452-904-7753. I buy my Japanese books from Pomadours Craft Cafe on Etsy.
