I won this lovely crochet pattern (Basic Circle Scarf) from Olivia at My Favourite Things.
I admire Olivia's crochet work and was delighted to try this pattern.
I had two skeins of Alpaca yarn.
One in a solid blue/grey and the other in a multi color.
The original pattern called for crocheting with two strands and since the Alpaca yarn
was quite chunky -- I decided to experiment and see what would happen.
Would I have enough yarn?
Olivia's scarf is 8 inches wide and mine is a tad over 4.
I was able to repeat the pattern once instead of the number called for in the original pattern
and held my breath on the last row.
I tried it on today and I love it.
The Alpaca yarn is so soft.
I want to cuddle the scarf.
Perhaps I'll sleep with it tonight!
We have more cool weather (cool for us) coming.
I will be ready.
Wishing YOU well and much joy!
