Having the flu has some benefits. Like enough free time to finish crocheting the Baby Radish Lariat Scarf out of Twinkie Chan's Crochet Goodies for Fashion Foodies book.
Besides crocheting every pattern out of her book, I am attempting to use up the yarn in my stash to do so. I didn't have the exact yarn she used for the project on hand, but I still think it turned out pretty cute.
I used a small part from a skein of Sensations Belezza Collection Stellina in fuschia for the main portion of the radish and some Red Heart white and green for the rest of the scarf.
This is a really great scrap yarn buster pattern. Most of the yarn used was for the stems and leaves portion, and that barely put a dent in the skein of Red Heart green yarn I used.
This is also a great assignment for learning double crochet, half treble, and treble crochet stitches.
Oh! And it was agreed amongst my friends that safety eyes make everything cuter. Sure, a radish scarf is adorable. But a radish scarf with two little beady eyes looking out at you? Frakkin' adorable!
