Warmth in Bloom | Crochet Fashion Scarf and Earwarmer Headband



In this cold winter months, keeping warm can also be fun and stylish.  When I saw this great pattern from a magazine, I immediately wanted to make it. {That involved of course, buying the magazine too, :p }  Before this, I have only crocheted headbands based out of a video tutorial on YouTube.  The tutorial was so informative and basic, it carried me through every little step that made it easy to follow.  Watching the tutor do the steps assured me that what I was doing was right.  This is my first time attempting a project out of a written pattern.  You might imagine how intimidated I was.  But this cute scarf is too pretty to pass on.  I had to try.

Every so often, I second guess myself: "Does this look okay to you?"  I asked my hubby.  Of course he would proudly say, "It looks beautiful!"  I'd take it, as if he knew exactly... er, anything at all about crochet... :-)  I would actually feel reassured and I'd move on pleased.
 


Doubts took its toll, I diverted from a scarf to a headband.  Thinking it wasn't looking the way the model looks like in the magazine, I improvised {I guess you could say, I merely worked in my mistakes and made it a part of the pattern}. The result is as you see in these photos. :-)  Did it turn out well? Hm, yup! In my opinion :-) My friends liked it so much that I was encouraged to start again determined to finish the scarf this time...


And here is what I came up with.  What do you think?



And I was totally hooked, I decided to make another.
Purple or Pink? :-)



Project based on "Icing on the Top Scarf" by Alla Koval published in the Crochet! Magazine October 2014 issue, purchased from Read's magazine shop for $14.99+tax.

Suggested material: Berroco Captiva size 4, medium worsted yarn.  I used Bernat Super Saver Yarn size 4, medium.  

Because of my available yarn, I found the suggested hook size - F/5/3.75 mm - hard to work with.  So, I used hook size 4.25 mm instead.

The pattern maybe be protected by copyright laws, maybe not... so I will not attempt to publish it here.  However, I may lend my copy to a friend, that's allowed right?  Email me if you are interested in this project.

Stay warm and stylish dear friends!

xoxo, Maya
