Road Trip Scarf Pattern Friday I went on a little spur of the moment road trip with hubby and I wanted a fuss free project to keep me busy during the drive. Scissors are banned on road trips as hubby is paranoid that I accidentally stab myself again (during a road trip a couple of months back I was snipping a thread, we hit a pothole, a very common occurrence on South African Roads, and I embedded the scissors in my left wrist). While hubby was planning the route I quickly grabbed some variegated yarn, started two triangles to make "scarfy" versions of a shawl I made a few weeks ago, and popped them into my SHABBY PROJECT BAG I managed to finish both scarves, edge them and make a few little flowers - with a few cm of yarn to spare - before we arrived back home. Yesterday morning I sewed the flowers on with some beads and a few braids and Ta-dah! For the greenish scarf I used 2 x 50g Elle Family Knit Classic (Courtelle) colour "Sushi" with a 4.50mm hook and a 5.00mm hook. COLOUR: Hunter HOOKS: 4.50mm and 5.00mm

Textured Bow Tie Hope you aren’t sick of bow ties, because I have one more for you. It is just crocheted blocks sewed together. Pretty easy and do-able even for the most beginner of crocheters. When you sew your pieces together, mistakes or inconsistencies become a little less visible so it’s a good first project! I am not going to go to the very very basics of crochet, but here is what I did… First hook size. And now for the pattern… Yarn: I used 4 ply worsted weight yarn in cotton and in acrylic. First for the main bow tie piece… Tie off and weave in loose ends with a yarn needle. Now for the remaining pieces. First, the neck band. Measure your intended wearers neck. Turn, and in second chain from the needle double crochet to the end. Note: I made mine too long. #1: chain 13 stitches. #2: Then turn, and single crochet in the second stitch from the needle to the end. {12 stitches} Chain 2, single crochet to the end. {11 stitches not including the chain 2} Repeat to desired width. I made a couple more.
