Recipe: I Only Have Eyes For You Scarf
Yarn: Schachenmayr nomotta Salsa (Fiber Content: 100% Polyester; Yarn Color: Unknown; Yarn Weight: 4, Aran)
Hook: US I – 5.5 mm
Dimensions: Forgot to measure before donating

I obtained this yarn for free from Peggy. I just love the color and I thought it would make a nice scarf. I was going to make it longer, but at the guild meeting this past weekend I discovered that there are no size restrictions, so ended it before joining a third skein, sewed in the ends, had Parmesaner (isn’t she a cutie-patootie?) model it for me and turned it in as a donation to Handmade Especially For You. I really like this scarf. I wish I could wear one, but with my heat sensitivity issues, it would not be so pretty for so long.

Due to our – what I presume to be – fake mutual crushes, I chose to name the project I Only Have Eyes For You by The Flamingos.

After doing a lot of short row test knitting for BananaKnits, I was curious if there was such a think as crochet short rows. With the concept firmly implanted in my head I set forth. I had some difficulty at first because I kept forgetting to “seal the short rows.” Once I remembered that key instruction, I was golden. However, I wanted to make this pattern a little different so I created a special stitch – Single Crochet Bar Front Loop – which I am just loving for it’s texture, and I think actually complements the gradient in the yarn.

Pattern: Catch My Fall Scarf by Hooker Leo
Yarn: Red Heart Boutique Unforgettable (3960 Tidal); Fiber Content: 100% Acrylic; Yarn Weight: 4
Hook: H – 5.0 mm
Dimensions: 6′ x 6.25″

At the guild Saturday, I discovered that The Curse of the Grandmother was not done with me yet. I noticed that one of the squares I had attached already had a mistake which was affecting the border. Aiyaa. Having nothing else to work on, I sauntered over to the scarf donations table and found a skein that I really liked: Red Heart Boutique Unforgettable.

I set to creating the scarf in filet crochet style as that is what I have been working on with The Curse of the Grandmother. It took a moment to get the right number of stitches for the foundation chain, but once that was achieve, it only took overnight to finish.

This scarf will be donated to Handmade Especially For You.
