Velvety goodness

I’m much more comfortable with knitting than I am with crochet. Crochet projects can very easily not get finished. They can collect dust for a long time if I’m not careful. Well, it was time to finish this scarf.

Crochet scarf

This is a very soft chenille scarf, done with trebles and chain stitches only. It’s Sirdar Chenille DK yarn and although it’s quite bulky, it doesn’t feel too bulky because of the net-like finish. I actually like it a lot more than I thought I would.

I haven’t blocked this. I’m not sure how well chenille yarn would block so I didn’t bother. It’ll be crunched up around my neck, so who cares if it’s blocked or not? I certainly don’t.

Crochet scarf with autumn colours

Autumn is pretty much finished here (we had our first bit of snow today!). The other day it was nice and sunny, a rare thing this autumn, so I rushed to get pictures with the lovely reds of the ground.

Happy knitting crochet!

      1. Maybe you’re so used to knitting that different moves seem unnatural and forced? I had this problem when learning to knit as I used to crochet for years before and couldn’t transition into different ways of holding the yarn etc.
        In any case, great scarf!

      2. Yes,, you are probably right. One thing I struggle with is the fact that I can’t really crochet without looking at it. Maybe that’s something that will become easier over time. Anyway, I’ll continue to crochet something every now and then. Perhaps it’ll become more natural over time.
