The Floral Crochet Archi Scarf has an Architecture Edge to the design with the colours of stone used in these beautiful buildings as well as the Crockets and circular style of the scarf similar to the rose windows seen in these amazing buildings. A floral touch with a quatrofoil button finishes off the design. Available in other colours and made with hand painted merino wool. Shown with the Classic Edge hand warmers to compliment this design. To purchase or see more of my designs check out http://www.valeriebaberdesigns.etsy.com or http://www.valeriebaberdesign.com Wear this design to the front as shown or to the side as seen in these other pictures below.
The second group of scarves are the Hand Painted Lace scarves that have a triangular base and a combination of two different crochet lace styles. This scarf can be folded in half to give a shorter and warmer style perfect for fall and winter. A perfect year round scarf that accentuates the hand painted qualities of the beautiful yarn. Various colours will be available as I continue to add them to my collection.
I have been taking time to add more cotton designs to my collections and have added this simple chunky cotton infinity scarf to accent your wardrobe. It will be available in Merino wool as well in the fall. Comes in several colours with and embellished floral brooch or without. A great price point that is perfect for gift giving and to treat yourself with a lovely handmade scarf.
To add that special and unique scarf to your wardrobe I have added two OOAK pieces that are made with a combination of cotton, organic cotton, silk, bamboo, bead and sequins. A dual scarf combination perfect for year round wear ability to accent your wardrobe. You can see more at here and how to wear this unique scarf. Only one of each is available.
Most of these were inspired the gardening season coming soon. I am looking forward to enjoying my deck out back surrounded by trees, plants and flowers. It becomes my outdoor studio and office. Can’t wait.
Happy belated New Years to all of you. Had a wonderful Christmas and New Years with a house full of family. Great times! Now I must get back to work playing with yarn (I know, it’s a hard, hard job). 🙂
This year, to celebrate New Year and start off on the right foot, I decided that I would make myself the first scarf of the year. Kind of a late Christmas present. I usually don’t have time or take the time to make myself my own designs, not sure why, perhaps I just run out of time. I find when I am working on something new I decide I will want one of the newest styles instead, yet somehow I keep forgetting to make myself one. None the less I controlled my desire for my next design dancing around in my head and picked the Rose Onie Bulky X-Long scarf in a lovely Grey Blue Hand Painted Merino Wool by Malabrigo Yarns. This is done in their Mecha yarn, new this year done in absolutely lovely colour ways and extremely soft. The best part was finishing the scarf on New Years day! Great way to start a new year! I am currently working on some hand warmers for myself to match. Below are a few other colours also available in this cozy warm scarf.
I have been busy working on some new designs for the New Year. Some will have “One of a Kind” hand spun fibres and other unique yarns. I love seeing what I can design with specialty yarns, they are a great starting point for something completely unique. I am looking forward to getting back into more pattern writing later on this year so keep an eye on my blog to see what I design for this end of my work. I will continue to offer some free patterns to compliment my blog as well this year.
I love a new year, it is the perfect time to reflect on the last year and all you did and accomplished as well look forward to a new year of exciting adventures to come. Have a wonderful start to your New Year!!
I have been working on my Fall and Winter Designs over the past month and getting some of the ideas out of my head. Here is another one of my new designs for Fall, the Ruffle Lace Collar Scarf. These are done in Malabrigo Hand painted Rios Yarn. A lovely worsted weight with amazing colours.
I wanted to design a nice light collar that could be left as is and showcase the hand painted yarns or be embellished in the future with wonderful inspirations. Added the flowing ruffles to each piece so they would go with my Water Way theme this fall and I could tweak the design to suite a more eclectic feel for some of my other embellishments. Crocheting is a great way to add sculptured waves, curves and texture to a design. I will be embellishing these bases soon, but they are also available in their classic version as shown for a smaller price tag.
You can view more on my Etsy site at www.intricateknits.etsy.com… I am off to be inspired with the embellishing of these designs. The colours are screaming out various directions I should take. http://www.etsy.com/ca/listing/160134895/ruffle-lace-collar-scarf-in-hand-painted?ref=shop_home_active
