first FO of 2015: Desert Rose, ta-da!

I’d have posted earlier because it only took a day to make, but I had to block it first!

Desert Rose - crocheted by Hannah from Not Your Average Crochet

The pattern is by Ana Clerc and is actually called Desert Marigold — I just called it Desert Rose because I used a yarn colorway called Rose City. The pattern is available for $5.50 on Ravelry (click here).

The pattern is very simple — I’m a little mad at myself for paying for it when I could probably have gotten close by looking at the pictures, but I went ahead and paid because I didn’t want to sit around experimenting and guessing (is that paying to be lazy?).  In any case, it turned out beautiful and I’m very happy with it!

The yarn is KnitPicks Hawthorne in Rose City, and I still have a good bit left.  Maybe I could make a baby hat?

It was good to get back to crochet after such a lot of knitting.  It went by so fast but I enjoyed every minute!

Desert Rose - crochet cowl in a lacy patternI’m stuck on fingring/sock weight yarns right now, because they make wearables drape so nicely!  I’ve already started another project that’s also in fingering weight yarn and it’s coming along — I’ll share soon!  So far 2015 has been very productive (I hope it lasts)!  Have you started on anything new yet this year?

Well, that’s all for now, thanks for stopping by!





  1. Love the lacy scarf and the color is gorgeous. I think it’s amazing that you could have just figured out the pattern on your own. That is amazing! No new projects for me. I am working on finishing several cross stitch projects this year. Wish me luck 🙂


  2. It’s lovely. 🙂


  3. That’s a lovely scarf. I haven’t tried that kind of lacy pattern before and think you might have inspired me to! I love the colour you chose too.
