Price: £44.95

This stylish scarf is crocheted in a basketweave style, suitable for men or women. The hand dyed yarn is 100% wool, making the scarf warm, thick and cosy.

The scarf measures 14cm (5.5 inches) in width and 150cm (60 inches) in length.

One of the scarfs is varying shades of dark blue, the other is a graduating blend of pinks, greys and greens.
The scarf can be made to order in any shade you like. I made this scarf over the course of a couple of weeks, whenever I had the chance – sitting at home by the fire, on trains and in coffee shops with friends!

These fingerless gloves are a very popular gift, or a treat for yourself. They can be made with yarn of any weight, depending on how thick, warm and cosy you want them.

The blue gloves, with optional, detachable decorative flower, are made from a thick, 70% wool and 30% silk and are soft and luxurious. They will fit an average adult female hand and they cover from the middle of the fingers to part way up the forearm. Adorn them with some crocheted flowers (not included).

The red and green gloves are made from a light weight 100% wool yarn and are adorned wtih funky buttons. The weight of these gloves mean they are perfect for chilly spring and autumn days (or summer in Scotland). They will fit an average adult female hand and they cover from the middle of the fingers to halfway up the forearem.

I also find fingerless gloves perfect for use when typing in a cold office!

As always, these gloves can be made to your specification. Please contact me.
