LIFE IS A JOURNEY, ARE YOU READY?

CHOOSING CROCHET PATTERNS FOR MEN (i.e. MR WASHY)

Mr Washy is coming to visit and because Europe is getting ridiculously cold and also because Washy doesn't have proper scarves, we have found a couple of patterns to crochet some for him. We found a cable stitch scarf as pictured in green and knitted one for him in brick colour. We are not experts in crochet or knitting but all the instruction videos on youtube made it so easy! These videos are like the grandma or mother we never had. :-S

Rows 11-146 Repeat Rows 3-10 seventeen times.

Row 147 Ch 2, turn, hdc in each st across.
Fasten off.

This is the other scarf is a camel-ish colour. We like this stitch. It makes the scarf looks very solid, it also makes the scarf thicker and thus warmer. Instead of starting with 19 ch as in the pattern below (which is for kids), we started with 29 ch instead.
