|Had left over yarn from this project|
What do you do with your yarn scraps? Please share...
Having also limited amount of time yesterday before we had to begin making dinner, I didn't even have time to google to gain some inspiration when suddenly it hit me... some sort of necklace type adornment. I wear long necklaces a lot and thought umm, maybe just maybe I could make something I could wear with my dresses...
|This yarn worked well for a necklace |
as it was already chunky and if you
look almost rope like, yet so incredibly soft
I began by using the majority of yarn to form lots of loops and then tied then at one end to hold them in place, forming the actual necklace part of the make. I measured it round my neck to achieve the desired length, see end photograph. This was not enough to make it a special necklace and was lacking in something. So a rose flower was crocheted. You know the type that you chain a gazillion chains and then begin with dc into every third stitch, say about 6 or so and then increase the height to a dtr, then finally rolling up to form a rose. I didn't use a pattern and just made it up as I went along so can't really help more than that.

small rose and another here larger rose
I did not have quite enough of the Rowan yarn to complete the flower, how typical, so used an equally chunky 100% wool, usually used for felting in shades of grey and blue. I think actually I was lucky that I ran out as the blue gives the necklace more of an edge than had it all been in grey.

♥ So please do tell, what do you do with your leftover yarn?
Would love to have some more ideas... ♥
