Bright Shells Scarf

I've got another easy scarf pattern that doesn't use a lot of yarn.  This was one of my favorite scarves to work up.  Once I got going, it was a stitch that I could work without thinking too much about it.  It made a nice somewhat dense texture that was still very soft.

Materials:  4 oz. worsted weight yarn.
My yarn that I used.
Is that not one groovy looking yarn label?

Hook:  H/8 5mm

Ch 32.
R1.  Sc in second ch from hook.  *Skip 2 chains, 5 dc in next chain.  Skip 2 chains, sc in next chain.*  Repeat between *'s to end of row.  Ch 5 and turn.

R2.  *Sc in 3'rd dc.  Ch 2, dc in sc, ch 2.*  Repeat between *'s to end of row.  Ch 1 and turn.

R3.  Sc in 1'st dc.  *5 dc in sc, sc in dc.*  Repeat between *'s to end of row, ending with sc in turning ch.  Ch 5 and turn.

Repeat rows 2 and 3 until desired length ending with R2.

Barbie Furniture

I have debated long and hard about whether or not to share the instructions for this project with you.
 So cute, aren't they! 
And so far, I have decided to be selfish and keep the how-to to myself.  There was a lot of mumbling and drawing and measuring and thinking involved in coming up with how to make these and I'm just not quite ready to relinquish my secrets. 
Maybe later.
But I will share some pretty pictures with you.
Mighty generous of me, I know.
And when you are done looking at the pictures, if you decide that your doll desperately needs one of these, like, today, then head on over to my Etsy shop, and let her pick out one for herself.
 What a comfy place for Barbie to sit a spell.
 Barbie can take a short nap...
or a long one.
Two's company...
three's a party!
And a few more....
