Weekend Project {October}

I always seem to be have a big crochet project on the go, normally a blanket. I am currently working on a gorgeous Rowan Afghan  which is going to be stunning once it its finished (hopefully in the next week). 

However sometimes I feel the need to start and finish an actual project. The weekend is the perfect time for me to work on mini projects. I am trying not to do any freelance work at the weekend unless necessary as I find myself working 7 days a week and its been taking its toll.  So a little project to keep me busy but not overworked has been fun. 

This is what I have made in October:

I started with this autumn bunting

The leaves and acorns are a mixture of patterns from Simply Crochet and ones I found online.

Little Miss then requested a rainbow scarf with tassels...

I didn't use a pattern for this just rows of half triple crochet. I used King Cole Flash DK in Summer Fruits which makes a great rainbow pattern.

Of course BG then wanted one of her own so I made her an infinity scarf with the same yarn. Again no pattern just rows of half triple crochet just in a different direction. 

Then I decided I better make something for myself! 

The hat is from issue 29 of Simply Crochet and is called chunky beret and the scarf pattern is from CroCreations and is super easy and quick to work up. 

I think November's weekends will be filled with a lot more scarves ready for Christmas gifts but I don't mind. The last two years I have set myself a November challenge but I am not this year and its loads of pressure and a real rush at the end. I am going to take it slow and enjoy my crafting.

What have you been making?
