I made a scarf. Unlike the beanie I made in December, this one I made entirely on my own - no pattern!. I'd also like to make a matching hat but I'm not sure I have enough yarn for one.
I didn't want a long scarf, so I kept it as short as I could - I wanted something I can make a knot with but that wouldn't be long enough to hang too low.
This, however, means I can only wear it in a few ways besides the knotting technique shown above, that is, over my shoulder, under my jacket:

I made it in a thickish worsted yarn that a friend gave me. I don't quite understand ask the different worsted varieties, so I won't go any further with that description. The yarn came complete with pictures of the alpacas it came from!
The pattern is my own, and this picture shows it best:
It's not the best pic in the world, but the pattern goes something like: |||V||||V||||V|||
Each V is crocheted in the chain sp left by the previous one. The pattern is pretty easy to crochet so I might make it into a real pattern and how to if you would like to see it! It just uses double crochet.
