A box full of Bonbons

This box was waiting for me when I got home from Morocco. It's filled with Scheepjes newest yarn called Maxi Bonbon! These little 25gram balls come in 87 shades and I got all of them! Oh lucky me...
You can buy this lovely yarn at Deramores they ship worldwide! And at Wool Warehouse.

I put them on my coffee table first, to admire them.

Then I arranged them a bit and admired them some more....

Okay now it's time to try out this beautiful very thin mercerized cotton yarn. It says it's for a 1,25-1,5mm hook, but I decided to use a 2,5 mm hook.
Started with the blues first, you think that's my favorite color? Yes blues and greens it is!

But I have to admit I do like pastels too, since my grandchild is born......

Anyway I can tell you that I am totally in love with this yarn! It will probably take a while before I actually will finish something with it, because I have so much other stuff I have to finish, but I just had to share my try outs with you...

Waterfall Scarf

Klik hier voor Nederlands.

For this Scarf I used Catona 25gr by Scheepjes

You can buy the yarn here at Wool Warehouse and here at Deramores, they both send worldwide.

Purple: 2x 394, 1x 128, 1x 256, 1x 240, 1x 114, 1x 246, 1x 251
Green: 2x 395, 1x245, 1x 392, 1x 100, 1x 402, 1x 385, 1x 253

Hook 4mm.

The scarf measures about 160x35cm.

The patterns is in US terms

First you have to make the wavy strips. I made 6 strips with 52 waves.

Now we have to crochet the strips together. Like I said I made strips
with 52 waves, but for the pattern I drew strips with only 5 waves,
just to make it clear.
Go all the way around, make sure to crochet loops on the top and bottom
of the strips for the fringes.
Start to crochet around a second strip, but stop before you crochet
the second chain on top of the wave, pull your needle out...

I love to share my designs with you to inspire you and I like to keep it free! A little donation though would be much appreciated, so I can keep buying yarn.
