I wanted to crochet something for myself, but it had to be quick and easy since I really don't have much time to take on a big project. I found this chunky scarf pattern from Prudent Baby and it couldn't have been more simple! I didn't have a size N hook so I used a K hook (6.5MM) which made the scarf a little smaller and tighter but it still fits nicely without being too bulky. I used almost one whole ball of Cozy Wool Loops and Threads yarn in charcoal. Here is the pattern:
Chain it to the length you want (I chained 135). Slip stitch to join into the first stitch.
Row 1: *Ch 3, dc into fourth chain from the hook, dc 134 (or each additional stitch in your length), slip stitch into first stitch to join
Row 2&3: Repeat from *
Weave in ends
I couldn't have a scarf without matching gloves. And I noticed that fingerless gloves have been pretty popular this year. I saw my friend Heather over the Thanksgiving holiday and she had a super cute pair of crocheted fingerless gloves from H&M. They looked like something I could easily make! Well, These aren't exactly what she had, but this pattern from Craftbits.com was too easy not to try. I used the same chunky charcoal yarn. These gloves were done in a matter of minutes. Someday when I have more quiet time I will crochet some real gloves. Its very difficult to count and stitch with a 2 year old and 8 month old by your side.
