Look what I finished over the holidays; my Tunisian skinny scarf, made with Scheepjes Stonewashed XL! :)
I actually wanted to take gorgeous photos of this scarf on a lovely lady in lovely weather, but I lucked out – it has been nothing but rain here unfortunately! I promise I will take more photos of this scarf, on an actual person this time, and show you all :)
I have loved this project from start to finish. It was my ‘workshop shawl'; every time I did a meet & greet or a workshop somewhere last year, I brought along this scarf to work on whenever I had a moment. And over the months it slowly and steady grew into the long skinny scarf it is today!
I used 7 colours of Stonewashed XL for this scarf, with a 6mm Tunisian crochet hook. The yarn officially calls for a 5mm hook, but because the Tunisian stitch is such a dense stitch, I moved up one full hook size. I didn’t want my scarf to become too stiff; I wanted it to be flowy and stretchy! :)
I used my KnitPro interchangeable crochet hook that I can use with my knitting needle’s cables, because I love working with wooden hooks and because I think using a hook with a cable is more comfortable than those really long Tunisian hooks (the ones that look like full on knitting needles, with a hook at the end)!
I made a full tutorial for all of you on how to do this Tunisian stitch; which I will publish on my blog next week, for free! :)
In the meantime, enjoy yourselves with a view of those gorgeous looooong stripes…
