A pretty mosaic of my crocheting for Mosaic Monday!

Here's the most recent crochet project I just finished.  A pretty neck scarf for my niece.  

The body is Lily Sugar n' Cream 100% cotton yarn - color "Pastel Print".

The edging is Loops & Threads Silky Soft 100%  acrylic yarn - color "White".

I made this in a few evenings this week using a G hook.

The body was fairly quick...the edging took a little longer with all the picots.

The body yarn has touches of pink and a little blue throughout it.


All Finished!

The body of the scarf is based on Julia's Isar Scarf free pattern which can be found (here). 

 I modified the pattern from a start chain of 40 reduced down to 20.  I made the length very long (almost 80 inches).  

The edging is #129 of "Around the Corner Crochet Borders" by Edie Eckman.

For the edging first I added to the body a row of single crochet to each end of the scarf and then I double crocheted all the way around before I started the #129 edging.

I hung my Grandma Twinkle Stars up for Christmas too!

  2. Sandy, all your projects are so pretty. I really like the multi colored afghan. It has been a few days since I have been able to crochet. I can't wait to get a hook back in my hand.
