Crochet Project: Fur Balls

This scarf/cowl has been in the works for over a year.  Twice it was thrown in my to do basket and it was frogged = ripped apart many times.
Fur balls
Leave it to me I can make the simplest projects difficult.  I was determined to make something out of this really funky kinda ugly yarn.  I must have been a tad addled the day I picked it out.  It was too wide, then too narrow, then too crocked…
Fur ball creation
I finished it yesterday…it was 72 degrees out so I had no need for a winter scarf.

It is a cowl now, one I can wear on my head and around my neck.  It is not perfect but close enough that I can live with it. I stuffed it in the old toy box where the overflow winter “stuff” is stored.  I will wear it a few times and if I don’t like it I will donate it.

Done.  Now I can get out some scraps of yarn and start a new crochet project.  Join As You Go Granny Squares…a wonderful way to use up some of my yarn stash.

  1. Granny Square projects are how use up all my old yard. I was making vests for a charity for awhile. Mostly I crochet in Winter when I'm freezing my butt off.

  2. I might take up crocheting again this coming fall or winter. I went over to that site and it brought back a lot of memories. Those weird fur balls are kind of odd looking, but you did good with that cowl. :-)

  3. I had never seen such unusual yarn as that with the fur balls, It is cute though and should look nice as a cowl. Good for you for finishing up this project.

  6. Kudos for finishing this project. When yarn gives me fits, I usually end up tossing it in the round file.

  7. I think those fur balls are going to tickle you and make you laugh. Possibly at inappropriate moments! You have a lot of sticktoitiveness.

  11. I like it- wish I could see well enough to crochet or knit again. All of my afghans are worn out they are so old.
