A pattern release! Will wonders never cease? Yes, that’s right, you can now get your very own copy of the Shooting Starf pattern over at Inner Child Crochet. I recommend it, really – such a fun scarf.
A few issues of Crochetme ago, they published an article talking about the relationship between hook size and the drape of your crocheted fabric. As it turns out, the ‘recommended hook size’ is often far too small for a fluid fabric. The yarn I used for the scarf is DK weight – lighter than worsted – but I used a J hook. Which is two sizes larger than I usually see recommended for worsted weight. (Um. Last time I checked. I just realized that I can’t remember the last time I actually checked the recommended hook size.) Anyway, if you take a look at the picture you can see that the larger hook size resulted in a beautiful drape, and the fabric is not gappy, either.
Go check out the pattern! If you haven’t been over to my page of sale patterns before, you should check those out, too.
