This took me four days longer than I’d anticipated. I hate it when life gets in the way of crochet.
The stitch is called arch mesh and I think it worked really well for this scarf, which is essentially a long, narrow triangle (150 cm wide by 28cm at the pointiest bit). I used plum in Vinni’s Nikkim cotton, and the edging (which is 3-ch picots, and I’m very chuffed with how it turned out) is aubergine.
As for the photo above – well, even picMonkey’s special touch-up tools couldn’t help me today, so thank goodness for text boxes. As I was busying myself with this post, Alex came home with her friend Jenna, so here are some more pics:
This project is going to be Kit #3, and I’ll be typing the pattern up and winding the cotton ready to send to Wichita tomorrow morning.
Back soon x
