Raindrops: Off da Hook

“Oh no they can’t be teardrops for a man ain’t supposed to cry…

The Name

Raindrops by Dee Clark

I always try to find a song title that will relate to my project. When I received this bag of wool embroidery unicorn tails (raindrops) from the El Segundo Slipt Stitchers knitting guild last month; the idea: to create a storm.

The Scarves

Destination: Charity
Dimensions: 3.5-6 inches wide x 60-80 inches long
Hook: US H-Hook (5.0 mm)

The stitch used on three was crochet moss stitch, while one was back loop half-double crochets, one was crochet seed stitch, and the final was single crochet.

The Yarns

There was one other label that I had saved, but it is shorter, indicating a two label tail; and of course, I kept the wrong label half. Great yarns that feel so soft, I am tempted to keep a scarf for myself.
