Indigo scarf in an Indian box



2014 kicked of with a big bang here at the Pigtails Palace! The energy in the house is insane and we are all swimming in adrenaline at the moment, living life to the fullest.  I will tell you all about this interesting year in another few weeks.

Meanwhile, I took one look at my blog content and decided to spruce up the postings or else we may just all start yawning in boredom soon, I am working on a few postings in advance and please do come back as I will be sharing tips on utilising new media for crafting purposes, photo editing ideas, hooking across borders, iPad ideas and many more. 

New cotton yarn is peeking out of a shopping bag, looking at me with weeping eyes, begging me NOT to turn it into scarves. Oh well, apart from this Indigo gorgeousness, I have finished another erm 3 scarves!!! but will start on a cushion cover or a doily or a toy or anything else today, simply to break this vicious addiction.
 
Hooking the Indigo scarf was pure pleasure, I loved the repetition of the pattern as well as the absence of ends to weave in due to using the awesome Invisible Double Knot (see Youtube) when I joined a new skein.

I have to say good bye to the Indigo Scarf in an Indigo Box now - Happy Birthday Mareli!

Pattern: The Double Crochet Five Together Bobble Scarf

Row 1. Ch 30 
Row 2. Ch 2 to form first hdc, then 29 hdc

Row 4. Ch 2, 29 hdc

    2. You should definitely try the harlequin pattern; it´s easy, repetitive and neither yarn nor time eating!

  10. Nice stitch and a beautiful colour. Going to use similar, but in Vinnis Nikkim, in a vaguely-planned project later this year.

    1. It is a great stitch and there are a few variations to make the bobble pop more or less and also the frequency. It is a yarn eater though, I would love to do a white throw in bobble, but would space the bobbles out that is for sure!
