Teddy will now model 'started but not finished' items which have been crocheted using up a car boot sale bargain bag of wool of insipid colour.
First up a scarf without stripes from this pattern for a vertical striped scarf. This scarf is minus fringing at the moment.
Next we have Teddy modeling half a crocheted shrug from this easy pattern.
It's just a granny hexagon ...
... folded in half. Two halves have to be joined for the full shrug.
I suppose that if you just keep going you can make a longer cardigan or jacket with wider sleeves.
I did start a slouchy hat from here, but it didn't turn out quite right. Here's the second attempt which is my own made up version. I started with a granny circle. When it was wide enough I continued without increasing for about 4 or 5 rows. In dc (sc) I decreased in every other stitch (testing it to see if it fit my head) then continued for about 5 rows in trebles (dc). It looks like a slouchy hat, I just need someone to wear it now as it's a tad too small for teddy!
The snowflake's a bit easier to find today.
