Crocheted Scarf And Hat >>> Hackovana Sala a Cepicka

Not too long ago I was shopping in local craft store and I saw a very  interesting yarn. This particular yarn was on sale (I love that) and it had "build in" elastic, so to speak, and what else - it had colors that appeal to me. The name of this yarn was Patons Stretch Socks and as the name suggests it is designed for knitting socks. You can see the image of the yarn and the color I chose on the left. They had other cool colors - it was hard to choose.

I am a person that even if the yarn is designed for something else, I will use it which ever way I want to. At first I wanted to use it to knit a vest or some top for my daughter. When I showed her the yarn that I bought, she said she likes it very much and please knit me a scarf. Since the yarn is a multicolor yarn, I decided not to use any fancy patterns - just a simple purl/knit technique. I had about 10 inches done when I showed it to my princess. But, as she is in the age, that she has her opinions and visions, she told me she doesn't like it. So I decided to crochet the scarf instead. Took it all apart and started all over again.

I re-designed the scarf in my head and when I was nearly finished the look of the scarf was gracefully accepted by my loved one. I must say that indeed it looked much better then the previous knitted one. As she was examining the almost finished scarf she looked at me and asked me "Would you crochet a beret for me too?" I told her I'll try it. I never made one so I had to employ my  internal producer, aka noodle. The vision was there, but the design was developing as I was progressing with my creation.

Step-by-Step Directions:

I used crochet hook size #2 


Scarf: 6 ft long has the base, which has many rows

this base has been completely re-written because it had a glitch/mistake. I wrote it first time after the scarf was finished for several weeks, this time as I tried to re-create the base and write the pattern for it as I was crocheting. If anyone still has a problem with crocheting, post a comment. Thank you for your understanding as I am not a designer - this is just my hobby.

1.ch 17
2. triple crochet stitch (tr) into 12th ch, ch 5 (= five chains), tr into the last chain stitch (you should have 2 "windows" like shape)
3. turn what you crocheted around to start new row - ch 12 (crochet 12 chains), tr (= triple stitch) into triple crochet stitch from prev. row, ch 5, tr into the chain stitches from previous row which will create second row of 2 "windows" like shape = you will have now 4  "windows" like shape
4. turn what you crocheted around to start new row and repeat #3 from now on
5. repeat this until the base is as long as your desired length (about 6 feet)


------
Now we will crochet around the base and which we will call our "second row"

ch 5,  three tr into same spot (the corner), ch 5, four tr into first triple stitch (in our base), ch 5, four tr into second corner, now continue on the side of the base with ch 5, four tr into base and so on - all around the base - finish with slip stich.
------

"Third row": sl st to the middle of the "four tr cluster" - ch 5 + 2, seven tr onto "ch 5", ch 2, tr in the middle of four tr, ch 2, seven tr onto "ch 5", ch 2, tr in the middle of four tr, ch 2,... and so on all around the scarf. Finish with the slip stitch.

Nedavno jsem nakupovala v mistnim obchudku rucnich praci a uvidela jsem tam zajimavou prizi. Navic tato prize byla ve sleve, cemuz jsem nemohla odolat. Navic prize byla mirne elasticka a co jeste - byla vyrobena v mych oblibenych barvach. Prize se jmenuje Patons Stretch Socks  a byla vyrobena hlavne na pleteni ponozek. Presna ukazka teto prize je na pocatku tohoto clanku vlevo (u anglicke verze).Meli jeste jine barvy, ktere se mi take velmi libily a bylo tezke si vybrat.

Jsem osoba, ktera pouzije prizi na uplne jiny typ vyrobku nez na ktery byla vyrobena. Nejdrive jsem si rikala, ze ji upletu vesticku nebo nejaky vrsek a kdyz jsem ukazala prizi dceri, poprosila mne o salu. Ponevadz prize mela nekolik barev, tak jsem zacala salu uplne nejjednoduzsim stylem - hladce a obratce.  Nejake obtiznejsi vzory by moc nevynikly. Kdyz jsem mela upleteno asi 20 centimetru, ukazal jsem salu moji princezne. Je ve veku kdy ma svoje nazory, ktere je obtizne zmenit a uprimne mi rekla, ze se ji nelibi. Tak jsem celou moji snahu vyparala a rozhodla se pro hackovanou verzi.

Pre-designovala jsem ji v moji hlave a kdyz byla sala skoro hotova, ukazal jsem ji me milovane osubce, jenz milostive akceptovala druhou verzi tolik ji typickou eleganci. I ja jsem musela uznat, ze sala vypadala mnohem pekneji nez pletena. Zatimco moje dcera prohlizela salu, koukla na me a zeptala se: "Uhackujes mi take baret?" Rekla jsem ji, ze to vyzkousim. Nikdy jsem zadny baret nepletla ani nehackovala, tak jsem musela zase zamestnat muj mozek. Ideu jsem mela. ale design se vyvijel postupne jak mi pribyvaly radky.
