The holiday season usually means scrambling to making gifts, décor, and stocking stuffers. I do try to make items throughout the year to could be used as gifts. It doesn't always seem to work out and now I have been working projects for the past month. So now I am sharing some of my projects that will go out as gifts
The first scarf is a creation I had come up with. Using two colors, I would switch colors in the middle of the scarf. You might notice that one color is on one side of the scarf and the second color is on the other side.Red Heart Heat Wave. I have seen it at Michaels and had to buy some to make as gifts. The blue scarf is just a seed stitch. I have come to like how the seed stitch looks. I did the scarf using 27 stitches on a size 9 needles (5.5mm). One ball did not quite go to 60 inches, so you might need more that one ball for a longer scarf or make it narrower by going down to 23 or 25 stitches. If you are not familiar with the seed stitch, here is a link to a You Tube tutorial.
I am really getting into making miniature hat ornaments.
