Pattern Review: Braided scarf and Yarn Stash: Franks Crafts Wintuk

Links to this post

Last month, I had the chance to make this Braided Scarf. I think I've had it in my Ravelry queue since the first time I signed up. 



I used three of my stashed yarns, including the Ombre Sayelle yarn I used in the Baby Bear Hat. The lighter green is the Caron Simply Soft Sage color I used from the Nautilus Cloche pattern. The bright green Frank's Crafts Wintuk yarn is one of a large bag of green and white yarns I purchased from a yard sale, when I just started crocheting. I used some of this green in the Poinsettia ornament pattern.

I used a I (5.55mm) crochet hook, and I did a foundation hdc of 120 stitches.

The blog wasn't really clear on how to sew the braid to make an infinity scarf. You can see in the picture below that I crocheted the three mini scarves together in a row. Now that I think about it, I would have stacked them and crocheted them together. I think I was almost running out of that yarn, so I didn't want it to go to waste. I might sew the stacks later.
I think it would look better if the braids were chunkier. But I am happy with the color combo, and I hope someone would like it.

These Crochet Nunchucks from Life Away From The Office Chair are my favorite! They are so cute, and they're soft enough to hopefully not do as much damage. Thanks for sharing this post, Lisa!

What have I been doing?

It's been rough for me this week. My mother went to the hospital on Wednesday. She has colon cancer, and the doctors are working on stabilizing her body for treatments. But we are trusting in the Lord for healing and strength in her body.
