Crocheted to completion

Isn’t that moment when you finish a project (or projects) lovely? Even quick projects hold a sweet satisfaction upon their completion.

I finished the scarf I mentioned in my last post a couple of days ago. It’s got a lovely light but warm feel to it and was so easy to crochet. All I did was use double crochets (US terms) chains to create a grid/net to the length I desired. ๐Ÿ™‚

I’ve also crocheted a hat using the same Patons Colour Works Aran.

The hat has ribbing created  through alternating front post double crochets and single crochets. The pattern is free; designed by Nancy Smith, and available from www.nlsstitchings.com.

So now onto my next project… Minion (from despicable me) inspired amigurumi!

Wristers

After I’ve finished mending the blanket I’m working on (hopefully it’ll all be finished tonight), I’ll be working on more fingerless gloves. Redheart have written a nice straightforward freeย pattern which produces gloves that fit most hands (wristers). I like that I can still use my phone while wearing them.

I first made a pair of these as part of a crochet crowd challenge and I wear them all the time. When it gets colder that may change but for autumnal weather these are great.

I want to have a go at making mittens soon… I’m sure I saw a nice pattern where the top folds back (still thinking about using phone!!!) ๐Ÿ™‚
