Loving Winter ♥ ❄ ☃ ☼
Here in the St Paul/Minneapolis and St. Croix Valley area, February is “exit time” for many people. We’ve had it with the cold and snow, but it’s mostly the cold that drives us to seek out warm, and sometimes exotic locations to enjoy a respite from the blasted arctic chill.
On the other hand, we also revel in the winter with celebrations like the Hot Air Affair in Hudson, WI and The Winter Carnival in St. Paul, MN, to name a couple of the well-attended events. We do make the most out of all of the seasons.
Inspired by warm winter vacations and the reds of Valentine’s Day, I’ve collected several of my knit and crochet patterns to share in my Loving Winter ♥ ❄ ☃ ☼ bundle. They offer you a selection of projects using variety of yarn weights.
These are available for free download through Saturday, February 21st. Have fun with them.
Happy knitting and crocheting!
Happy Valentine’s Day!
Happy Winter vacation!
Thank you for all of the pattern support!
Crochet this lovely ruffled scarf with the fabulous lace yarn, Renda Trico, Margarida, by Circulo.
After experimenting with crochet, I was very happy with the results of this delicate, feminine ruffle. This scarf is a quick and rewarding crochet project. You will be able to make two soft ruffling scarves from one hank.
Approximately one half of the hank will result in a scarf that is 3” wide x 60” in length. Or vary your length and make a shorter version. It’s possible to get three short lace scarves from one hank.
The crocheted scarf does stretch. Consider this when you plan your desired length.
The scarf is long enough to fashion many ways, as shown.
Dress up any outfit with a joyful ruffle! This playful ruffle works with jeans, too! Or how about skipping the traditional shawl or wrap for the wedding party and going with gorgeous lacy scarves instead?
