Waterfall Scarf

Klik hier voor Nederlands.

For this Scarf I used Catona 25gr by Scheepjes.

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.

Last Dance on the Beach week4

Dear Marinke,
Never got the chance to meet you in person....something I was really looking forward to. But it never happened. That bloggersday last year you were sick, so they said. I thought you had the flu or maybe caught a little cold. I had no idea, you were that sick.
And then the day came, the day of that devastating phone call.....I don't have words for it.....
The only thing I can say is that I feel deeply honored that I got asked to design a square, so we could finish the CAL you started.
With the beach theme in mind I knew right away I wanted to design one with waves, to symbolize the ups and downs we all experience throughout our lives. I made the waves quite big because I think you're live was rough...
Hope you like it.
