Now that I seem to be back in a crochet mood, I thought I’d share some of my works in progress (WIPs) with you all.
So the last time I posted a picture of a WIP, it was of a half-done C2C blanket. I was making it for a friend who’s expecting her second child any day now!!! So exciting! I did manage to finish the blanket and gave it to her the last time she came over. I was super happy with the whole experience and with the end result. What do you think?
After completing my husband’s new beanie yesterday, I’ve begun working on a scarf for my daughter. I wanted to make it using the crocodile stitch so I had to find a Youtube tutorial to learn how. It was a bit tricky at first, but now I’ve got the hang of it.
I’m making it with Red Heart Gumdrop in grape and using a J sized hook to get a nice soft and flexible scarf. I’m 3/4 of the way through my first skein of two and I’ve only got about 30cm done. I’ll probably have to go out and buy another skein or two. The crocodile stitch takes a LOT of yarn to make (10 DC stitches per scale), but it’s worth it. I really love how frilly and fancy it looks. I’m still undecided as to whether I should make it an infinity scarf or just a regular one, but I still have time to figure that part out.
I’m keeping my fingers crossed to be able to finish it by next Wednesday so that I can share a picture of the finished product with you guys!
