There’s a reason they call this little beauty the roadtrip scarf.  A few hours in a car/plane/bus (delete as appropriate) 1.5 balls of yarn and a crochet hook and Ta Da!!

I love it.  The pattern is by Zooty Owl and can be found here.  There are loads of posts out there with tips for the edging  and close up videos of starting off, but it’s one of those patterns that once you’ve done the 1st few rows you are off.

I used the new Cabaret yarn by Stylecraft.  My tension is quite loose so I did crack into a second ball but if you were tighter then I’m guessing you might get away with 1 if your lucky.

The colourway I chose was Rainbow but there are some beautiful colours available. I believe this yarn is quite hard to acquire now, I know when I was at Ally Pally back in October the Stylecraft stand was running low on most of them.

The thing I loved most about this scarf was the lovely little flowers.  A simple pattern whipped up in minutes using a magic ring.   I’m adding them to almost everything I make at the moment!
