Hyperbolic Skinny Scarves

I am working on a bunch of ruffled skinny scarves for the Christmas Spirit Market in Tinahely on Sunday December 13th. It’s great fun and I find the combination of Artesano Aran weight, a size 8 mm hook and the hyperbolic technique works a treat. I finish each off with mohair for added effect. IMG_7343

I am combining the making of the scarves whith focusing on the three workshops on the Irish Hyperbolic Crochet Coral Reef that I am doing at The Science Gallery on Sunday December 6th, there are still (FREE) tickets available and they can be booked here.

You are invited to come along to Hypberbolic Day at The Yarn Room on Friday December 4th from 10 – 5.30 and make your own contribution of crochet for the Irish Hyperbolic Crochet Coral Reef.

The scarves are colourful for the winter and fun to make, they are nice and snug and warm and soft to wear! What’s not to like?

Re-working The Beanie

I have been experimenting with the Cool Spring Beanie Pattern over the last couple of days. I have tested the sizes and the pattern and it seems to work.

I was almost done typing it up, until the other day when I was plonked in The Yarn CouchTM Stephanie asked me if I had the pattern in a children’s size also. I don’t. Well, I didn’t. I more or less do now… Or rather, I’m busy testing if I do. I think I do.

What I do have is a little short skinny scarf to go with it. I thought it would be chic with a little scarf. I have mentioned it before, I really do like skinny scarves because they are not bulky although this time around I decided to make it a bit shorter than normal so it cannot be doubled up. Instead it will just lie on the neck with one simple soft knot. That’s the idea but there is nothing stopping anybody from buying an extra ball of wool and work the scarf that much longer.

I am working in the almost edible Artesano Alpaca DK. I really like the drape that the weight of the Alpaca gives. I hope to have the pattern up and running very soon. I just need to confirm that my size theory works first. Back to the hook…
