Hat and Scarf Gift

I recently acquired a lot of black yarn, and so I made this hat with a friend in mind who likes purple and blue.  And to go with it, made a matching scarf.  I really don't like working with eyelash yarn, so I always weave it with a strand of regular yarn, so I have more bulk to work with, and it makes it easier to grab with the hook.  As long as the yarns are the same color, you can't really tell by looking at it.  And it often makes the eyelash yarn go further in a project.  It does change the softness of the scarf a little bit, but it's still really soft compared to other types of yarn.  I've also done these scarves with contrasting regular yarn, and it gives it a sort of, polar bear effect. I'll maybe pull one of my scarves out like that, so you can see what I mean.  :)

Happy crocheting!


  1. That is a great idea to strand the 2 types of yarn together!

  2. It really makes it easier to work with tricky types of yarn :)
