Gifties

"Pinky" Scarflette

I'm ALMOST done crocheting most of my holiday gifties for this year! Phew! I still have a few soap sweaters and spa cloths to whip up, but they're fast.
Last night I met my good buddy, Rhoda for dinner. She was wearing a very pretty pink Koigu lacy scarf that I crocheted for her last year. I'd totally forgotten about this scarf. It's very lacy and very Rhoda. It looked stunning on her bejeweled black cardigan.


I asked Rho if she'd like another similar scarflette, but in a different color. She wants celadon green. I have very little blue and green yarn in my stash, so I zoomed over to WildFiber at lunchtime today and picked up this gorgeous yarn. I'm going to crochet a different lacy pattern than "Pinky." Can't wait to start! LOVE working with this yarn!

Hi Amy, thanks for the compliments. I made up this pattern. I started in the middle with some double crochets and then kept going around and around the scarf, building out, using different dc stitches. Eventually, I think I found a crocheted edging pattern that I liked in one of the Harmony books and did that for the final rows.
