Studio Snippets – Improvising a Pattern!

July 31st, 2009

Pin It

A new pattern came out, the Thermal Scarf, and it had a stitch that I wanted to try.  It was a scarf using front post double crochet.  I grabbed a ball of Cotton-Ease from our demo bin of yarn and gave it a try.  I wanted to make sure I understood the pattern in case any of our customers asked about it.  I was having so much fun I couldn’t stop.  I took it to home and I realized I was getting close to the end of the ball, but alas, I had no idea what the dye lot was.  I had two choices, rip it out and start again, or improvise.

I decided to look up how to do crochet button holes.  I put in two button holes, picked up some cute buttons from the Studio and turned it into a one ball neck warmer.  I love it.
