So I have not been ignoring my crocheting, but there has been a lot going on. Last week I ended my old job and this week I started a great new one. At the same time, I’ve been working on some new designs and in some cases, they’ve been taking a lot longer to work out than expected.
I just finished the crochet for the Hooked Holla Infinity Scarf and I am super excited to be in the home stretch of assembly. I am still hoping to have the pattern posted by the end of the month, probably this weekend.
I’ve been mulling the design of this scarf over in my head for a while now. I loved the Challah Infinity Scarf since I first came across the pattern on Ravelry, but alas, it is a knit pattern and I don’t do that. While I was tempted to purchase the knit pattern to see if I could just make a crocheted translation, the $7 price tag got me to get creative instead.
I was very inspired by the Challah Infinity Scarf and decided to make the Hooked Holla Infinity Scarf. Since it is a little knockoffy I chose to keep the pattern free, even after extensive reworking. It’s two ribbed strands with reversible post stitches between segments and one textured strand made of a griddle stitch variation. I worked the textured strand so many times I lost count. It was a long time before I was happy with the way the texture looked and worked with the ribbed strands. So after you make these three strands, you braid them together and sew the ends together to make it continuous. That’s the part I’m about to do (with fingers crossed).
After a lot of work and reworking, I hope this becomes the amazing scarf I know the Hooked Holla was meant to be.
