New Year’s Resolution Blog Hop
The start of each new year brings renewed energy for making changes within one’s life. One thing that will never likely to change is your love for crochet and yarn.
Cosy Rosie UK is hosting the New Year’s Resolution Blog Hop all January long. Each day features a crochet pattern related to a resolution, such as learning a new stitch, being more eco-friendly and more!
Today, January 17th, I’m excited to the be the featured designer with the Peaks Scarf! I chose this crochet pattern for the resolution of ‘Learn a new stitch.’ I enjoy modifying stitches or a technique to create a more professional look. The Peaks Scarf is made with a modified Prong Stitch. which is alternating rows of Split Front Post treble stitches and single crochet.
