  1. Will definitely do! I still need to develop the patience for this sort of work, but definitely admire anyone who pulls it off, especially this neatly.
  2. Thanks both! Yeah, I know, but I didn't have all of them on my pc (I'm using puush to link images, as it uploads screenshots immediately to your account), so I just stuck with links for this one when I noticed embedding them in img code didn't work.
  3. Great work! I think the ninth is my favorite in terms of colors, but all of them are very lovely.
  4. Forgive the messiness of these two, but I'm a beginner who started about two weeks back and especially with the blue scarf I had essentially no clue what I was doing. Still pretty proud of them. They are respectively my second and third crochet projects, as the first was a little dishcloth. For both of them I used fairly cheap yarn from a local Dutch store called Zeeman (not going too expensive when there's still a reasonable chance of me royally screwing up). The yarn itself was called 'Julia' and I used an 8 mm hook for both scarves. The yarn is mostly acrylic, with 10% wool. It's also twisted very loosely, but despite having read warnings that yarn like that can be a real pain, I didn't really encounter any difficulty with it. 10/10 would use for more scarves. Onto the actual things: The blue, regular scarf, which I made first; https://puu.sh/ujGSn/da6264fa0f.png I didn't measure it, since I just made sure it was roughly the same length as my old scarf. It's broad, it's long, it's incredibly soft and supersnug. I used this pattern: https://handwerkjuffie.blogspot.nl/2013/12/niet-breien-maar-ribbels-haken.html Albeit with a few adjustments. The pattern is in Dutch, sorry for that, but I still want to link it, since I want to give credit where credit is due. And the infinity scarf, which is a lovely soft pink; https://puu.sh/ul7Q1/c2c19ad335.png https://puu.sh/umifB/3367ca8bea.png For this one I used the following pattern: http://littlemonkeyscrochet.com/rustic-fringe-infinity-scarf/ By the time I worked on the second one I realized I had already become better at controlling how loosely or tightly I was crocheting, and there is a distinct difference in the two scarves, despite the yarn used being the same. The infinity scarf keeps it's shape really nicely, whereas the regular scarf is just great to completely disappear in because my God is it soft. I have a lot more that I want to make, but around forty percent of that is more scarves. They're relaxing to make and there's just so many lovely patterns out there for them. My next one will likely be with thinner yarn just to switch things up. It'll have to wait though, since I also have some fingerless gloves in the making right now.
  5. Thanks! Just finished a very lovely infinity scarf, I'll see if I can take a few decent pictures
  6. Thanks everyone! For my study I need to use the internet on a daily basis, yet it never fails to amaze me how easily it allows one to connect with people all over the world. Looking forward to really becoming active on this forum.
  7. Hi My name's Inge, I'm 22 (23 in a few days) and from the Netherlands. I started crocheting literally last weekend and am currently making a scarf. Not sure what else to put here, so any questions are welcome!
