Rainbows and Scarves and Hats (Oh my!)

I’ve made a lot of stuff in the past few months, so I’m going to try and separate it all into manageable posts.

In February, I was comissioned to make a rainbow scarf for my friend Marzena.

I accidentally crocheted the scarf a few feet longer than I had meant to, mostly due to the chain stitch stretching.

It’s pretty simple, made only with double crochet, each color being three rows wide. This was probably one of the biggest projects I’ve crocheted.

Then, one of my other friends asked me to make a rainbow cowl.

The first one I made in February, (pictured above) but it was too small, so I made another one that was longer in March.

I forgot to take pictures of the second one, however. My apologies!

More recently, (last week!), my friend Claire, who also knits, asked me to knit a hat!

Claire outlined a pattern for me verbally, saying I should start the hat with 54 stitches, and then decrease by six once it was the desired length.

I forgot Claire’s instructions, and instead started the hat with 64 stitches, on needles that were two sizes too big.

Luckily, I knit extremely tightly, so the hat fit just fine!

That just about sums up all the rainbow stuff I’ve made since February. Look out for more posts containing more recent makes!
