Snowflakes 7, days left 18

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.


  1. Cute bear, lovely crochet work too X

  2. I've found the snowflake today. I'm impressed with the crochet, I'm still stuck on granny squares.

  3. Cute makes! Teddy looks cosy in his crochet finery :o) Scarlett x

  4. I love your model! Beautiful knitting and crochet.

  5. My bear just bopped me on the nose and asked me why I can't knit or crochet. I've sewn her some PJ pants, but it appears she's a fan of yarn.
