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.

  • Annual photo of tiny daffs in tiny vase! A throwback to when @andreaellisonphoto & I visited the guys from  @nine_meals_from_anarchy in 2014. So much has changed since then, but I'm still wearing that granny square cowl, coat & wellies combo for gardening! Oh and I lust after a greenhouse this big - think of the possibilities!!! I'm still not comfortable in front of the camera, but Andrea always brings out the best in me. I ♥ all the photos she's taken of me and my crochet!

My neighbour's crop is showing promise! I'm thinking gin, crumble, maybe some rose petal and rhubarb cordial, rhubarb and ginger jam ... more gin.......I do love rhubarb!!!! My creative space. Today I had a bit of a spring clean & tidied my desk . I took this photo to remind myself how tidy I can be! By Friday it will be a chaotic mess again. You can also see some of my "must haves". Flowers (from a gorgeous posy bought last week in a beautiful posy bottle made by Victoria at Little Wren,  handcream, lip balm and a scented candle - this is a new @willowandhoneyuk candle  bought today from @thelittlecraftcompany it smells divine and the wooden wick crackles in a very satisfying way! I'm working on a new commission for Inside Crochet using super bright shades of cotton, using a lovely wooden hook bought from Beyond Measure at Woolfest last year. On the notice board, a few favourite photos, some paperwork & the ladybird pattern that came free with issue 99 of @insidecrochet . I've put it there to remind me that once this book is finished I can have some fun! There are lots of people tagged in this post - too many to mention - but I love buying lovely things from real people & my workspace reflects that admiration for women who run their own businesses & do it well! Explore the tags and you might discover some new favourites! Flowers everywhere! Bunches of cut flowers in my kitchen, blooms in the bathroom and a desk covered in crochet florals. This spring my designs have been influenced by love of the outdoors.  This is a sneaky peek of a new design, commissioned for issue 100 of @insidecrochet , believe me, this is an issue you will not want to miss!!! #instacrochet #crochetflower #girlgardener #knittersofinstagram #grannycoolcrochet #haaktechniekenbijbel #uncinetto #horgolás Goodbye winter, hello spring! I spent most of the weekend in the garden, tidying and prepping the greenhouse, pricking out seedlings & watching the first Gardener's World of the new season. The greenfinches are skirmishing, the sap is rising, buds are forming and it's light enough to step outside when I wake up. Happy days!
