This weeks Project

Today I finished my Solomon’s Knot Scarf. This was my second time crocheting this scarf for myself with the first being around twelve years ago. I wore my old one so much it was started to look it’s age. It is wonderful that when an old favorite item of my wardroom wears out I can just dig out the pattern and crochet a brand new one. I wish I could do this with all my clothing.

I used some unmarked gray yarn in my stash, so I am sorry to say I cannot tell you the brand. Sometime when I buy yarn from thrift stores or yarn sales they are unmarked and unlabeled so reproducing it becomes a challenge. Using a K hook the scarf worked up so quickly that it was ready for use within the week.

 

The Solomon knot is an open stitch and one of the larger hook that allows this pattern works up quickly. I have enclosed the link for those of you who have not tried this stitch and would like to. It is one of my favorite stitches to crochet. It is easy to work and looks beautiful. I highly suggest its use.  I have inclosed the linked to the tutorial for those of you who would like to learn this stitch. (Solomon’s KnotTutorial)

Until next week, keep those hooks flying.

About crochetwithpassion

I have been certified through the Craft Yarn Council both in teaching and Instructor. I also have been teaching people to crochet for over fifteen years. This is what I will be doing through this blog. In the Crochet Master Class there are 18 projects. Some of the projects will be familiar to me such as Hairpin Lace; Tunisian Crochet; Filet Crochet; Double Ended Crochet; painted Crochet; Aran Crochet and Irish Crochet. However there are several in the book that are new and have peaked my interest and that includes the following: Woven Crochet; Tapestry Crochet; Entrelac Crochet; Fashion Crochet; Tassels; Bullion Stitch; Overlay Crochet; Bead Crochet; Bruges Crochet; Free-form crochet and Wire Crochet. Since Crocheting is a time consuming craft I will only be posting once a week. If you are like me and love to crochet but would really like to challenge yourself to go beyond what you are now doing, come along with me and move to the next level. Although the actual patterns will not be posted (copyright law) I will take you through each project and go through the process of each one. This is not a blog about free crochet patterns or selling crochet tools. What I would like to do is take you with me on the journey through this book as I learn and crochet each of 18 projects. I will attempt to crochet each project in the book, and in the process recording in detail my progress and the problems I encounter along the way and the process I went through to accomplish each project. I am hoping that you will not only learn from my experience but that it will inspire you to push yourself to the next phase in your crocheting skills. Until next time; keep those hooks flying.
