crochet scarf

I recently won some rather fabulius blog candy on Marie Greene's fabulous blog.
I decided to make her a little handmade something as a thank you, and she has recently decided to learn to crochet, so I thought I would crochet something to inspire her and show her it's not all naff toilet roll covers, lol.

One of the quickest and most impressive things I know how to make (without a pattern) is a solomon's knot scarf. This is a very lightweight scarf, so more decorative than warming, which due to the nature of the stitch can be worn in a multitude of ways, including as a very fetching lacy wrap.

Anyway, it will be posted out very soon, although, I've taken rather a liking to it and am tempted to keep it (I am actually wearing it right now, and even my husband just admired it), and the only way I could stop myself doing that was to make this blog post and announce it to the world. if I don't send it now I will look like a complete cow! lol

by the way fabulius was a typo, but I liked it as a word so I left it in, lol


  1. Ooh la la! I'm so excited, Joanne! That scarf looks yummy and I feel so honored that you're making something for me. :o)

  2. I really like that Joanne. I've not seen that crochet stitch before. It's always been granny squares for me! LOL

  3. wow thats totally stunning - oh how I wish I was that talented!Im trying to knit a babys hooded cardigan and lets just its been demanding and Im only on row 24 lol

  4. I want to learn how to crochet - its fabulous Joanne - very glam

  5. wow - love it, the stitches are fantastic!

  6. Brilliant stuff! Lucky friend!

    Congratulations too on your fantastic project in Craft Stamper! I loved it as did mum when I showed her! :)

  7. Wow, I love this scarf Joanne! And I'm seriously impressed that you can make it without a pattern .... is there anything you can't do??!

    I think I'd have wanted to keep it too - but never mind, it won't take you long to whip up another .... or two!


  8. Oh what a beautiful scarf! I started crocheting last year but am not proficient in it yet. I'm mastered the granny square and am up to about 30 of those. Making a baby quilt with 49. lol

  9. Absolutely gorgeous!
    I love to crochet, but have never made anything that beautiful.
    I think it's fabulous that you made and SENT it as a thank you and an inspiration. Handmade gifts reach right to the heart!
    You have a lovely blog Joanne, I enjoyed my visit today!
