I hope everyone had a lovely holiday!! Things were really humming here. Always such a busy time of year in so very many ways. I think my To-Do List actually weighed in on the scale at a few pounds ... LOL! School started back up this week for my little munchkins so I'll be back in the studio soon. I know a few people are waiting for new scarflettes and fingerless texting handwarmers so I'm putting those first on the agenda :)
In the meantime, I wrote up one of my scarflettes as a do-it-yourself crochet pattern. I made the sample out of a luxury alpaca yarn, but this is such a forgiving and easy pattern, you can make it out of any yarn really. Like all my patterns it has been fully tested, has easy to follow instructions and is essentially gaugeless. Yes, I am one of those people who hate making gauge swatches. I much prefer patterns that, at best, you need to put a ruler down on occasionally to measure. So that is the kind of pattern I write.
I have it up already at Etsy and will try to get the pattern added to the boutique soon. As always, I try to make the pattern as perfect as I can but I am only human, so if anything doesn't seem clear please don't hesitate to ask.
