I’ve finished up my Christmas crochet gifts and decided to work on something for myself. I bought this very pretty Merino wool at The Wool Gathering this fall and I’ve been saving it for something special.
I love the vibrant colors and it’s so squishy soft. 🙂
For the first project, I used the Kite Stitch Scarf pattern by Darlene Dale. It’s a free pattern found on the Caron Yarn website and it’s super-easy. As I was making it, I realized the yarn resembled “fruit loops” cereal, so that is what I named my finished project–the “Fruit Loops Scarf.”
I still had plenty of yarn left over, so I thought a pair of mittens would make a nice match to this scarf. For the mittens, I used the pattern, Easy Crochet Mittens by April Draven. April does a wonderful job with her instructions and the photos really helped. Again, a very easy, fun pattern with wonderful results.
I had so much fun making this set, I just had to share. These projects are perfect for this yarn–a nice Christmas gift to myself! 🙂
