Summer time = scarves?!
My quest to fill the Christmas box has lead me to making scarves as for some reason I thought that these would be simple and quick projects that would make great gifts. Somehow though I have managed to turn making a simple single crochet rectangle into a bit of a faff... not quite sure how, possibly starting with the wrong hook size didn't help.
After a good deal of frogging and re-working I now have two chunky and snuggly scarves which are long enough to wind well round your neck for maximum Winter comfort. I used 3 balls of the rather lovely Sirdar Crofter DK yarn and a 5mm hook and kept crocheting until I ran out of yarn.
As I'm still of the mind that scarves make lovely Christmas presents I've also started a Branching leaves scarf to use up some of my left over Sirdar Calico yarn - however there is no way that this is going to be a 'quick' project!
