Fernanda Scarf

This yarn looks so different depending on the light...

Sometimes the dark, muddy brown reaches out to you...

Outside it's the rusty orange that grabs you...


With the light behind it, the colors almost disappear and the stitches shine...
  



I was going to put on a pretty shirt and model it for you, but I couldn't get the pictures to come out well enough. I'm shy and a coward like that sometimes. So silly.

Anyway, I hope you like the scarf as much as I do. It was fun to make and is definitely something I'll wear. It's a free pattern by the same girl who wrote the Oveja Shawl pattern that I'm also very fond of. You can find the pattern on Ravelry here: Fernanda

Details:

Yarn:   2 + 2/3 balls of Premier Yarns Deborah Norville Serenity Garden in Earth (discontinued!  Boooo!)
Hook:  5.5 mm
Size:  Approximately 34" x 23" unblocked
Satisfaction Level:  Happy, Happy, Happy!

  2. Bravo, I love how the pattern is oblique! Very classy and dressy and I bet you'll get a ton of compliments on it! I'm coming along on my red shawl, and plan to make a matching hat and maybe some fingerless gloves. Too much? Maybe! ((hugs)), Teresa :-)

  18. Now that is a very different slant on things, the way the stitches are in the pattern. I like it, and love that yarn too. Don't you just love sock yarn and the varieties of variegated colors. You sound like me, I am shy too, too shy to put many pics up of me. I think there are a few, but I never did take a good picture and I'm not very photogenic. You would think at my age a person would just "get over it" but I think it is a carry over from back in my school days, those of us with last names that started with an W (maiden name) and a T (married name) we were always in the back of the classroom. I still always pick the back seat just about everywhere I go. Prefer looking at the backs of people's heads instead of them looking at mine. Maybe that is why I am shy on pictures.

  19. It is funny how a beautiful variegated yarn changes by patterns and different lighting too. It seems you find a yarn you want more always seems to be discontinued so soon. I have found one favorite boucle yarn that JoAnns discontinued but, I was smart to get extra of certain colors since they 11 ounce skeins. But I want some other colors but not available not even the company that makes it. I figure some of the boucle would make beautiful lacy shawls. I love your crochet you give me inspiration to try new things and different yarns too. Thank you my friend.
