Wizard scarf

Time for Sheep to venture out in the snow again with another scarf:

Made in King Cole Riot ‘Wizard’ using the corner to corner technique on a 4.5mm hook.
The scarf took 2 x 100g balls and measures 132 x 24cm.

Self-striping C2C scarf

I have been wondering what the Corner to Corner technique would produce if I used self-striping yarn, and now I know:

Please forgive the sheep prop – I was searching for something to wrap a scarf around other than myself and there it was!
Made in King Cole Riot ‘Dude’ on a 4.5mm hook. The scarf is 17 ‘squares’ wide and 89 ‘squares’ long, and used 200g of yarn.

Corner to corner scarf – ta dah!

Now that the yarn-drought is over I have bought some extra yarn to finish off my corner to corner scarf.

Made from stash but including Stylecraft Life heather, oatmeal and grey on a 4.5mm hook.
My scarf is 10 stripes wide by 43 stripes long and weighs 220g. The pattern worked up very quickly and I would certainly make another one…

My first C2C

Thanks to a little visual prompting from the Snail of Happiness I have had a go at making my first corner to corner (C2C) crochet piece.

It is a remarkably easy technique that produces a lovely basket-weave texture and grows in a most satisfying manner. There is a very clear pattern by Felted Button called the ‘Spring into Summer blanket’ which I used to get me started.

I have to stop now as I have run out of grey wool (I am having a yarn drought in August) but it will be high on my do-list for September when the drought ends!
