Shawl Finished

I finished up a chevron shawl using a yellow mohair blend I got from a lady at church.  It turned out nice.

I added in some other colors in with it. I am likely to donate the shawl back to my church as most of the came free to me from the church.

If you want to try to make one like it, you can see it is just a basic chevron pattern done in double crochet. Do an increase at the tip (dc, ch 1, dc, ch1, dc) every other row. Dc in the ch 1 spaces on the next row.

Because I liked it, I had to start another one.

Monday Mellow Yellows

I have been blessed by having my stash supplemented by church members giving me yarn they are not using anymore. In this case I go a bag full of yellow mohair.

I already started a shall with this yarn, I will have pictures here soon. I already have a photo on my Facebook page.

Wavy Knitted Scarf

So this scarf is a new work in progress. It is only a repeat of three rows. I called it a wavy scarf because the pattern does a looks like a might have a wavy feel to it.

So I am sharing the pattern so far..because it really is not finished yet.

Cast on 24.

Row 1: p3. k6. p6, k6. p3
Row 2: k3, p6, k3, p6, k3
Row 3: knit

So that is it so far, just repeat these three rows. The thing I like about this pattern is that it is reversible.
So I am going to keep going on this pattern until I reach 60 inches or run out of yarn, whichever comes first.

Spiral Necklace

It has been miserable these past few days, our air conditioner is out with temps in the 90's.

So forget working on the heavy projects, I made these simple necklaces instead..

Some basic instructions.
I used a G hook and a medium (DK/sport) weight yarn.
So with the necklace below, the foundation chain is in blue.
You chain a number dividable by 3 plus 2.
sc in second chain from hook,*ch 5, skip 2 chains, slip stitch in next ch* repeat until end, except sc in the last stitch. change to new color.
ch 1, sc in first sc. * 7 sc in each chain 5 loop* repeat until end, sc in last sc, change to new color.
ch 1, sc in first sc, *ch 3, skip 1 sc, sc in the next* repeat until end, finish off.
If you have an extra sc at the end, just sc in that.
I made a button loop and attached a button at the end.

I had used a novelty yarn with this one, due to its "fluffy" nature I left off the last ch 3 row.

I finished up this bookmark today. I originally printed out this pattern off the web back in 2002. I had to Google for an updated web address. I was fortunate enough to locate it for you.

Here it is:
