You’ve Got Your Troubles: I’ve Got Mine

Off da Hook

You’ve Got Your Troubles by The Fortunes

An occasion where yarn meets pattern and vice versa. The details are cloudy, but they matched and I set to crocheting. Early – coincidence? – pattern name matches performer name. Read on for “troubles” association.

Dimensions: 70-inch (W) x 32.5-inch (D), approximate
Care: Machine wash gentle or hand wash, cold. Lay flat to dry or line dry in shade, or tumble dry low. +

I followed the pattern despite having enough yarn to make a larger item. I think my primary reason was becoming bored with such a mindless stitch pattern? Not sure. Could be crochet/knit fatigue…it could happen!

Pattern

Fortunes Shawlette by by Tamara Kelly

Easy mindless crochet pattern, based on previous mindless crochet pattern. The challenge: working with such a large hook and fine yarn. I think the mindlessness may have contributed to the completion of Union Of The Snake cowl, All Or Nothing Blues scarf, America The Beautiful scarf, Highway To Hell scarf, A Bushel And A Peck scarf, and End It On This scarf.

Pattern “STRAIGHT-FORWARD,” which, of course, caused some complication on my part. Otherwise, very easy to follow. Could it be written better? Perhaps.
