Well.....when I saw this pattern, I thought of folks who have lost their hair for whatever reasons and wondered if this would be a nice alternative. The title used the words:
"Crochet A Joan Crawford Silent Movie Gypsy Head Scarf Hat Doo Rag Pirate Hipster Boho"
I was surprised when I finished it in just a few hours.
I found this yarn on clearance at Hobby Lobby and LOVE it - 50% acrylic, 50% cotton. Baby Bee in Hushabye Ombre - Sugarplum colorway.
I was even MORE surprised when my gauge was dead-on - the beginning chain of 152 needed to be 40 inches and mine was......40 inches exactly! I'll admit we had a mini-celebration. :) The pattern calls for an "H" hook, so I used an "E" since I am such a loose crocheter. How did it end up so small when my chain was the perfect length? More "mysteries of Cheri and crocheting".....lol.
So imagine my surprise when my finished scarf was ........way too small?? I had to stretch to get it on my mannequin head, forget me modeling. So now I guess I need a young girl to give this to?
Anyhoo....I think it is really pretty and a great concept. Not sure what went wrong. Should I wet it down and stretch/block it? I'm so new at all this......but isn't it pretty??
I may be linking to THESE parties!
