Colorful Crochet Infinity Scarf

20160926_132142So I recently discovered the Moogly blog, which is a treasure trove of crochet patterns, including this one. I highly suggest you check it out, if you haven’t already. (Incidentally, this is the second Moogly pattern I’ve featured on my blog. The first one was the rainbow organizers.)

I really like the way this scarf turned out. I made it as a way to try and use up some of my multicolored yarn (of which I have a lot) and to take a break from my recent, significantly more complicated projects. I was a little skeptical about how it would look going in, as the yarn is kind of a weird mix of colors, but I like the way the oranges and purples play off of each other to create a unique, colorful look. This scarf has a personality, which is an impressive thing for such a simple pattern.

I think this pattern is a great for crocheters of all experience levels, and if you want to make one, you can find it at http://www.mooglyblog.com/artfully-simple-infinity-scarf/. Additionally, this particular scarf is available on my Etsy shop (click here for the specific listing).

Hawkeye Coasters

100_8182Time for the fourth installment in the Avengers coasters saga! This coaster is based on my personal favorite avenger, Hawkeye, and is very, very purple.

To be honest, I was expecting this to be a lot harder than it actually was. My original idea for this design was a simple bow and arrow, which is surprisingly hard to make when you’re crocheting in a round. It wasn’t until I sat down to design this and thought to do a google image search for “Hawkeye symbol” that I hit upon the idea to instead make a targeting scope. This came with it’s own set of challenges—mostly in partitioning a circle into four even sections—but I think it turned out nice.

As always, you can download this pattern in my Ravelry store. The direct link to the coaster pattern is http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/hawkeye-coaster.
