Crochet Kerchief Scarf

I fell in love with this pattern. This is the third scarf I made.

This pattern is a #caroncakes pattern, put could be adapted to be used with different kinds of yarn.

This is my first one using a variety of scrap yarn. What I like about this scarf is that the thickest part of scarf could be used as a hood, but of course, I would not be able to test out that theory until winter comes along.

Purple Hat

I have made up another hat. Purple is my favorite color.

I am satisfied with using 80 stitches and a size needle to make a hat that will fit me and most adults.
However, This hat is about going with the flow.

The pattern I used on the hat is not the intended pattern. I put the yarn over in the wrong places after the first two rows. I did not want to frog two rows, so I just went with the mistake.

Another Hat


This hat will make the 6th hat I had made so far in the last month. I recently had bought a size 8 double pointed needles so I could make more hats. I had miscalculated the number of stitches I needed for an adult hat. This had has 72 stitches in it. It is a little small for me, but would work for a child.

Zig Zag Textured Scarf

In my previous post, I had done a French Fry Scarf. This time around I did another scarf using Caron Cakes and a size I hook.
I could not remember if I used a J or K hook. The height of each section is 6 inches. Looking at the yellow scarf, a section consists of a bright yellow and pale yellow part, or 16 rows. 8 going I one direction and the other eight going in the other direction. If you make the scarf using the Caron Cakes, there is just enough to make 10 to 10 1/2 sections. I ended up with 10 1/2 sections in the Caron Scarf.


So here is my pattern

For the materials use worst weight yarn and J hook, but you can vary these on however you like, to include using two or more contrasting colors.

Chain 33
Foundation row: 2 sc in second chain from hook (increase), [ch 1, insert hook in the last stitch used, yo to draw up a loop, skip the next chain, insert hook in the next chain, yo and draw through all 3 loops.] repeat brackets until the last 3 stitches. Skip the next stitch, sc 2 tog over the last 2 stitches (decrease) ch 1, turn.

***Row 2: sc in first sc, insert hook in the last stitch used, yo to draw up a loop, insert hook in the next stitch, yo and draw through all 3 loops. [ch1 insert hook in the last stitch used, yo to draw up a loop, skip the next stitch, insert hook in the next stitch, yo and draw through all 3 loops.] repeat until to the last stitch, sc in last sc. ch 1, turn.

Row 3: 2 sc in first sc (increase), ch 1, insert hook in the last stitch used, yo to draw up a loop, insert hook in the next stitch, yo and draw through all 3 loops. [ch1 insert hook in the last stitch used, yo to draw up a loop, skip the next stitch, insert hook in the next stitch, yo and draw through all 3 loops.] repeat brackets until the last 3 stitches. Skip the next stitch, sc 2 tog over the last 2 stitches (decrease) ch 1, turn.

Row 4: sc in first sc, insert hook in the last stitch used, yo to draw up a loop, insert hook in the next stitch, yo and draw through all 3 loops. [ch1 insert hook in the last stitch used, yo to draw up a loop, skip the next stitch, insert hook in the next stitch, yo and draw through all 3 loops.] repeat until to the last stitch, sc in last sc. ch 1, turn.


Repeat rows 3 and 4 two more times for a total of 8 rows. Then moving in the other direction.

Row 1: sc 2 tog over the first in first 2 sc (decrease), insert hook in the last stitch used, yo to draw up a loop, skip the next stitch, insert hook in the next stitch, yo and draw through all 3 loops. [ch1 insert hook in the last stitch used, yo to draw up a loop, skip the next stitch, insert hook in the next stitch, yo and draw through all 3 loops.] repeat brackets until the last stitch. ch 1, 2 sc in last sc (increase). ch 1, turn.

Row 2: sc in first sc, insert hook in the last stitch used, yo to draw up a loop, insert hook in the next stitch, yo and draw through all 3 loops. [ch1 insert hook in the last stitch used, yo to draw up a loop, skip the next stitch, insert hook in the next stitch, yo and draw through all 3 loops.] repeat until to the last stitch, sc in last sc. ch 1, turn.***

Repeat rows 1 and 2 three more times for a total of 8 rows.

So at this point the height of the scarf is about 6 inches and one section is done

Repeat from *** to *** nine more times or desired length of the scarf. Finish off.

French Fry Scarf

I just finished up a new project, I am calling it my French Fry scarf.

I had first seen it on Instagram and I had to try a version of it. My first challenge was to find the right colors. I ended up with pale yellow and bright yellow. I am not sure if it was the best colors, but it was the closest I could find. I liked how it looks, but not sure if I achieved the French fry look.

It still looks cool and I will likely make another one in the future. It could also mean potential for another scarf pattern.

Table Runner




I finally did Ila's Table Runner. I ended making a mistake in the center web. I did not discover it until I had the first spiral side done. Somehow I ended up making 11 sections in the web instead of 10. I had to compensate on were to start the second spiral. There was no way I was going to tear the project apart.
