Everyday I am learning more about crocheting. I collected a couple of books (thank you Ruth!) but because my head is overloaded with ideas I’ve started my own design first. It actually started when my mother bought some great wool for me, a mix of white-grey-light and dark blue, exactly: my favorite colors! I was so keen to use it!
So when a bigger crochet hook was shopped as well I could start. My mystery project is a tube scarf!
I’ve used 2,5 balls of wool and a crochet hook (dutch typo) nr. 7. I chained 35 stitches +1 to turn. The first and the last stitch of every row is a normal single crochet (through both loops), after the first stitch you single crochet only in the back loop. If you keep doing this automatically you’ll get the nice ribs! Keep going until it’s long enough….
Yesterday I tested it and it’s very nice and warm. I keep it for myself, because the Dutch winter is really cold at the moment…. *smile*
