12 WEEKS OF GIFTING: Week 12 Mini shawl/scarf with a flower Pin


SCARF/MINI SHAWL WITH FLOWER PIN
Original pattern from 2013, I have made some small changes and making a new one in Turquoise with red strips and might add a new edging stitch, which i will add to this post later in the week so you will have two edge stitch options

This can be made in a day so could be that extra Christmas present you need.
MERRY CHRISTMAS EVERYONE

This one has been made in 2 colours of Marble and 2 colours of Life, 
but any 2 colours of chunky yarn could be used



 6mm hook
US Terms and UK Terms in brackets

James C Brett Marble Chunky
Stylecraft Life two strands worked as one

James C Brett Marble chunky in cols: MC 32 granny shell, MC 3 for the single dc stripe or MC 8 if you want a bigger contrast. 

They are very similar but one is slightly darker than the other
I have used this yarn a lot and it comes in a fabulous range of colours and also in DK as well,
if you prefer a slightly lighter weight scarf/mini shawl use the DK Marble and Life single strand
