Someone To Call My Lover

The Name

Someone To Call My Lover by Janet Jackson.

Random match.

The Hat

Size: Toddler!
Destination: Charity

As I approach mental block, I improvised a matching hat for Baby, You’re Mine. The designer of Ophrys cowl, on which Baby, You’re Mine is based, showed a matching hat on her blog. One look and I knew it was another gather-top; not a fan.

I didn’t know how to pass the crown increases with the Glover Stitch, so I used single crochet. Unfortunately, I made my crown smaller than I had aimed. Oh well, they are going to charity and there’s no guarantee they’ll stay together.

Got ‘Til It’s Gone

The Name

Got ‘Til It’s Gone by Janet Jackson

Ha ha! I just realized this name is appropriate for many of my projects. However, it is most poignant for this project, as I actually crocheted until I ran out of yarn.

The Scarf

Dimensions: 54 x 4 inches

I’m a big fan of the colors in this yarn. I believe the alternating post treble crochets create a richly dense and squishy fabric.

The Yarn

Bernat Baby Jacquards Florals

Color: 06700 Orange Blossom
Content: 90% Acrylic, 10% Nylon
Weight: 3 – Light, DK

The biggest surprise to me about this yarn was the softness and the ease working the turning chain, properly: through the top. The additional colors are supposed to present as – what looks to me – grape bunches; would’ve been nice, but not expected with improvised pattern, and unconcerned.

Hooker Notes

This scarf represents one skein; I only wish I had another, as I am used to longer scarves. Had I known, I would’ve doubled the width to make a cowl instead.

As suspected, my ribs started curling on the sides, making me miss stitches. I solved this with a crochet back-loop edge.
