Since seeing the lovely Waves of Gray pattern that our good lady yarnwhore Miko has made as a free Ravelry download, I wanted to try it. I had about 2 balls of yarn left over from when I first picked up my hooks again and made a long scarf for Cardiff Marky and with these horrid nights drawing in, it was the perfect opportunity to get hooking again!
It’s such a simple pattern, really easy to follow as Miko has written great instructions and it took about 2.5 hours in total…happily spent in front of the telly watching it grow very quickly. I think I made a couple of mistakes but the pattern is very forgiving and I don’t think they show too much! I had 2 colours of yarn so made a lighter stripe in the middle – not very clear in this picture I know.
I’ll eventually make a little felted/knitted/crocheted flower or something to make into a brooch to secure it but in the meantime, I love the way it looks just tucked in. With the turning corners, you could also add a chunky button to secure it if you felt that way inclined.
It’s the second wrap/short scarf I’ve completed in the last couple of weeks and they’ve been great, fast projects to get me back into the swing of things, eager to get cracking on the next one!
