The sushi-scarf is completely done. Weaved, sewn, washed and dried...... Not embroidered, since I couldn't make it look nice. Actually, I do think it looks just as nice without the embroidery.
Lidt fakta: Halstørklædet er (igen) fra Twinkie Chan's bog, Crochet Goodies for Fashion Foodies. Det er altså en sjov bog!
Opskrifterne er fint beskrevet, så selv for en ikke-hækle-nørd som mig selv, er det ret nemt at gå til. Kan kun anbefales!
It has actually been fun! All in all, it (miraculously) only took 8 days, so it is finished and can be given to my niece in due time before I'm going traveling. She must need it right now, when it is so windy and freezing!
A bit of facts: The scarf is from Twinkie Chan's book, Crochet Goodies for Fashion Foodies (again). It is a really fun book!
The patterns are really well written, so even if you are not a crochet-nerd (just like me), it is quite simple making them.
Jeg har brugt 6 farver i malabrigo worsted, og sort og hvid mayflower easy care classic. Desuden en lille smule silke/mohair og noget alpaca/uld fra lager.
Resultatet? Det er SÅ blødt og dejligt! Det vejer ikke mere end 145 gram ialt, til gengæld.
Jeg tror, min niece bliver glad!
The pattern uses plenty of acrylics. Since I'm totally a yarn-snob (as you may have noticed!), my scarf was made with yummy yarn! A lot of the colors were not in my stash, and I wanted to make it with malabrigo, because it is so nice and soft, so I had to buy a lot. (A large part of my family would probably tell you, that this was just an excuse to buy yarn. Don't listen to them!)
I used 6 colors of malabrigo worsted, and black and white mayflower easy care classic. Furthermore a bit of silk/mohair and some alpaca/wool from my stash.
The result? It is SO soft and lovely! It weighs only 145 grams, though.
I believe, my niece will be happy with it!
