Recently I have updated the outlook of this blog to include my flickr photos. I added all my crocheted products photo inside and would like to share them with whoever is interested.

The first two photos are my most recent crocheted pieces on a scarf. It was made by a very simple design using weaving chain technique. The foundation design pattern is to form a mesh fabric to allow length of chain woven through it. The mesh crochet fabric is simply just a repeating of double crochet follow by a chain across the row as shown below (width approx. 16 cm, 6 inches):

  • Yarn A (dark grey): 5 rows
  • Yarn B (yellow): 2 rows
  • Yarn A (dark grey): 3 rows
  • Yarn C (red): 4 rows
  • Yarn A (dark grey): 3 rows
  • Yarn B (yellow): 2 rows
  • Yarn A (dark grey): 5 rows

Repeat the above until the whole scarf length is approximately 137 cm (54 inches).

 

After that, you will need to do the weaving chains. Using Yarn A, attached yarn to the base of one edge chain space, make a chain of 140cm (55 inches) long and fasten off. Weave ch in and out of mesh fabric, taking ch over 1st row, under 2nd row, and so on until the end. Attach other end of ch to end of last row and adjust the lenth of ch as required so that fabric lays flat.

Repeat the waving chains above using yarn B for the next two rows, use yarn A again for the next 3 rows, yarn C for the next 4 rows, yarn A for next 3 rows, yarn B for next two rows and finally end with one row of yarn A.

To make the fringe, cut 24 lengths of each of yarn A, B and C, each 26cm (10.25 inches) long. Using one strand of each color, knot groups of 3 of these lengths across ends of scarf, positiong 12 knots evenly spaced across each end.

At the flickr photos showed the half weaved scarf using dark green, yellow, light purple colour. I have also used a forth color (ivory white) to replace the dark green color for the weaving chain part as I run out of the color. I personally find the results not bad as the contrast between the ivory white and dark green makes the weave chain quite outstanding. Below shows my end product:
