Hot Off the Hook!

My scarf made of Red Heart Boutique Sassy Fabric.



This scarf took about 3-4 hours total. I used a K-6.50 mm crochet hook and followed the tutorial on Red Heart's website.

Total length is about 120" or so. (It was slightly longer than my 120" measuring tape.)

I personally recommend rolling the fabric strip around something that will unroll without twisting the fabric. It gets kinda annoying having to stop and let the fabric untwist. This was my method:


I just rolled the fabric around the cardboard roll and slipped it over the plastic roll, then borrowed my daughter's Rainbow Loom to make the rings to keep the cardboard roll from sliding around on the plastic roll. Then just ran a string through to hang it while I worked it. Worked like a charm.

Let me know your thoughts.

Hot Off The Hook



Just finished Priscilla Hewitt's Cotton Bath Puff. I did mine in Red Heart Super Saver 100% acrylic in Lavender or Lt Orchid. Can't remember the color name and the band is long gone lol. Pattern can be found at: web.archive.org/web/20010816055315/members.aol.com/lffunt/bath.htm


Worked up in about 6 hours total. Round 2 took the longest but was worth it in the end. Will be testing it out later. ;) I prefer acrylic over cotton because the cotton tends to absorb the soap instead of allow it to lather.

What are your thoughts?
