Woohoo! This is a cheeky little pattern from Anastacia Knits. It has made a light but warm scarf. I loved making this because it is not the type of scarf I would usually make. I usually stick to the plain stuff! It has a simple but effective repeat pattern. It grows very quickly and was easy peasy. I learned how to read a chart finally, thanks to this pattern. I didn't use the written instructions and followed the chart, which made me feel very grown up. Previously I have had a total mental block with charts but I really enjoyed this. Who says you can't teach an old dog new tricks! I also manged to read USA crochet terms without having to use a written translation. What a great pattern for raising my self esteem and giving me a nice smug feeling. The yarn I used was 'Sirdar Click' Aran, which is very soft and snuggly, but the pattern is so adaptable it can be made with any yarn.
My lovely boys were willing models!
