This year I picked a crochet project. I have wicked newbie skills when it comes to crochet. Basically I know the basic single, double crochet and triple crochet stitches and that's about it. I picked the "Blossomy" scarf. I decided to really push myself and expand my horizons.
I haven't learned to read crochet patterns all that well yet so I misinterpreted a few things and didn't look for clarification always and this scarf is uniquely my own. While I was making the second medallion I worked the last few rows with the wrong size hook. One that was teeny tiny, like 1.0 m.m. How I didn't catch that while I was working the project is beyond me. Thankfully, crochet is forgiving and I was able to bring it back to where I needed it and I started working it with the correct hook again.
I'm very happy with how this turned out. It's almost a shame that it's still summer and too warm to wear scarfs. I enjoyed the pattern very much. It's well-written and the different stitches are explained. I can definitely see myself making more of these in the future.
Yarn: MadelineTosh in the "Iris" colorway
Hook size: U.S. size G/4 m.m.
I didn't finish this before the closing ceremonies. Life got too busy so the first week I barely touched it.
