The Passionate Scarf

When I looked at the photos of my latest creation, I thought that there's a lot of red, pink and purple happening on this blog! But don't fret, if you're starting to find this boring; soon I'll be posting pics of some green and black creations moving towards a more gothic feel.

In the meantime, I did some crocheting for a change and learned the V-stitch pattern and a new type of flower.

The yarn is Sublime Kid Mohair in Rouge (shade 68), the softest Mohair I've felt for ages. One of my bargain buys at just £1.99 each 25g ball (I needed three balls to make this scarf) from The Black Sheep. I wanted to create a romantic piece, that brightens up dull winter days and perk the wearer up a little. In fact, I made it for a friend, who needs a bit of cheering up and will hopefully like it.


  1. Ooh, this is gorgeous! I've been wanting to do ruffles for ages, but don't know where to start. Can't believe you got that yarn for that price, it looks awesome :)

  2. It's so fantastic, I might be buying more unless someone else gets it first ;-) They have other shades of that yarn, too...

    Hey, I'm sure you can do ruffles, you're making such fabulous scarves and shawls...just put 5 - 6 double crochets into one stitch all around the scarf, 2 - 3 rows. Easy ;-)


  3. Ooh, thanks. Never done more than one stitch in a stitch but it can't be that hard the way you've explained it :)

    I would definitely stock up on that yarn while it's at a good price. I'm a bargain hunter - if I wasn't I wouldn't have enough money to craft - and I love stocking up on good deals :)

  4. That is a gorgeous scarf, and what a bargain that wool is!!!! I think you should do a 'how to' so we can all knit one :)

  5. Hi Meadow,

    thanks for popping by and posting your comment. I crocheted this scarf freeform, so cannot quite remember how I did it, but perhaps I can share with you the crochet V-pattern in a separate post, when I'm using this pattern again. In the meantime, the pattern can also be found in Debbie Stoller's book "Stitch n Bitch, The Happy Hooker", which you can find in the Recommended Books box in the right column of my blog.

    Loving your blog, btw. Glad I found it the other day ;-)
