Circles Scarf Update

Here is the photo of my latest interpretation of Linda Permann’s Circles Scarf Crochet pattern which first appeared in the November 2010 issue of Inside Crochet Magazine. I’m pretty sure it won’t be the last. I’ve loved making so many verisons of this, more importantly I “met” the designer (OK, so only in a virtual sense, but if Linda ever travels across the pond I’ll do my best to make sure we meet in person). Even better than making my own versions has been the enthusiasm of so many beginner crocheters at Fibre + Clay,  who have loved the simplicty of this design and the chance to follow a pattern and create a piece of fabric  all  their own.

The pattern is now available on Ravelry (hurrah!), so hopefully many more lovely versions will be online soon for us all to admire.

I’m hoping Linda won’t mind that I’ve “tweaked” this version a fair bit. It’s made with the beautiful hand dyed Shailasdair Luxury 4 ply from the Isle of Skye and I only had 1 skein. It’s currently on display at Fibre + Clay, so you can judge for yourself how soft  it is.

    I love those dingly bits….yes, tiny water droplets is a much better description…..your creativity encouraged to pop into Fibre and Clay and get Riana’s brain thinking about how to explain to do them! New, smaller hook bought and experimenting with the water droplets! Thanks Tracey x

    You’re very welcome. I did put a couple of tips under the Ravelry comments, which I hope will help you. I’m thinking maybe a photot tutorial on here might be useful. Let me know how you get on.


  5. I love this Tracey!!! The color is so beautiful and it really has a nice shape to it once knitted.

#spelt #permaculture #bakingandmaking Thanks to @textilegarden I found the perfect gift for my best friend at Woolfest, like a tiny acorn our friendship has grown into big oak tree. Years of nurture has given us strong roots. Happy 40 years of frienship Ali xxx I really think poppy seed heads are far more beautiful than the poppies! A break from Woolfest photos today. 
#girlgardener #seeds #gardenersofig #mygardenrightnow Years ago, a guy I followed on twitter wrote an ebook, I reviewed it on my blog and  it became my "go to" Friday night curry book. Now he has a "real life" cook book, published. Congratulations Dan @thecurryguy it's a triumph, sorry I can't be at the New Bookshop to have my copy signed xxxx
