New Scarf ......

I am working on a new scarf in a lovely cotton rayon yarn. I am finding the color combination to be right up my alley, but it seems to twist quite a lot as I crochet. I am not sure if that is due to the way the LYS wound the yarn, or it it is the yarn itself.  Every couple of rows I have to untwist it.  This is Olmue, a yarn blend from Chile, 399 yards in a finger weight.

After I experiment a bit more with this one I will post it again with the pattern notes. Not MY pattern, but have never seen it on the web anywhere, and looked in lots of books to no avail. So. I want to try my hand at a couple of variations before divulging the wondrous crochet stitches.  

The colors here are "cooler" than in reality. The scarf has more of a lavender/purple hue.  The next time I post I'll be sure the coloring is perfect as I can get it.

Drool all you want - I'll be back with more!


  1. I AM drooling. That is so pretty and I love that stitch pattern.

  2. I love that pattern. Very nice. I have to get going on some keyhole scarves for my daughter in California...and I'm always looking for new stitches to try. Keep up the good work :-)

  3. Your pattern has me intrigued.

    By the way . . whatever happened to the yarn caddy thing-y you designed?
