crochet circles done

scarf in garden shining

Pattern: none, this is freeform crochet, inspired by Wormhead's amazing hat creations (she has a great tutorial on this, check it out)

I worked treble crochet circles then attached them with single crochet (brown). Note: I'm talking English crochet language here, minus one for American (i.e. treble = double)

Yarn: hipknits cashmere (sockweight) in orange/ pink colourway from Loop and King Cole anti-tickle merino in chocolate (from Texere).

EDIT: don't know why I look so grumpy in that picture below. I'm loving this. The shape, the drape, the random-bubbles and definatly the hipknits yarn - is feels amazing and the colours a beautiful.

That's such a good photo at the top, the way the circles twist make it look like a flower in all that green

I love how free-form this is! I wasn't too sure about it when I saw the first picture, but it looks great on you! It definitely comes alive when it's actually being worn.

Philippa said...

Yup, it's lovely! And I don't even like crochet...

(Also, it appears you have a washing line, and a tree. In London. I am enamoured of both) - but your scarf most of all.

That scarf is awesome! I love it! I really need to learn to crochet. And congrats on the Magknits pattern, too - the Bakerloo socks are very cool.

It looks fantastic - circles are such versatile shapes! Cool :)

Susan said...

It looks very science-y to me, and beautiful. Like atoms, perhaps, or a string of amoebae. So cool!

Lolly said...

This is beautiful, Alice! I love the picture set, and the colors you chose for the scarf are some of my favorites!

Becky said...

Your scarf is wonderful and inspiring!

this is really stunning, and I bet it feels amazingly soft with the cashmere.

I just love the way like you add the "language", it's an important common sense, specially if you're a designer or a fashion's fan. Majority of works are amazing, specially the illustrations, there are a lot of talent, absolutely.

So, I don't actually believe this will have effect.
