2017 temperature scarf: January - April.

This scarf project records the daily average as represented by a designated color. Black band markers serve to separate the months. (So yeah, it appears I will have plenty of royal blue left!)

Just a note: I encourage folks to think outside the box on these types of crafting notions. It is not a requirement to follow the calendar year… or the temperature… or even a year for that matter. Sky’s the limit, right? 🌧🎊🎉🌞

A little at work crocheting while I’m watching training videos. It’s so helpful to my focus on these things. Crocheting got me through college lectures!

Another Punny Short Story

So this lady was driving down the highway crocheting as she drove. A highway patrolman noticed her and began pursuit. He drove up next to her car, rolled down his window and said,“pull over!” She replied,“ no it’s a scarf.

How to change colours without weaving - this video is the only reason I decided to take part in the temperature scarf project this year. Basically, it’s a no weave knot and it’s now pretty much all I use when joining two strands of yarn.

Free Crochet Pattern: Spring Flowers Scarf

Okay, I’ve never lived anywhere you could really say it felt like spring in March. Minnesota? Dumps a ton of snow. Wyoming? Also dumps a ton of snow. New Mexico? It’s been between 60 and 80 all month!! Only 2 cloudy days, even! This is good livin’ I’m tellin’ ya.

Now, I started working on this scarf before I left Wyoming, so it was merely a wish for the future, but now I truly feel it’s the season of this spring flowers scarf!

This was actually a pinterest-inspired scarf. Here’s the original:

It’s been repinned many times, and you can even find 2 others, probably made by the same person:

I can’t find the original source after quite a bit of searching, so if anyone knows, let me know so I can give credit to the maker of these gorgeous scarves!

I decided I didn’t want to straight up copy the scarf, which wouldn’t be too difficult, but to instead try to embody the happy spring flowers feel and make something different! The original is probably a fingering weight yarn, and uses yarn strands, rather than chains, to attach the flowers. It’s very delicate, whereas mine is a bit chunky.
