Vivaciously Colorful Rickrack Scarflet

Best Blog Tips


Uneven use of color makes for an interesting pattern every time. This pattern uses some of the shades of the variegated yarn to play with color and produce a fun and colorful scarflet. The wavy pattern of the lacy portion of this scarflet reminds me of rickrack (hence the name) and it lends a classic flavor to this scarflet to fight the boredom of the gray and lately, too snowy days of winter.

From Stress to Joy

NOTE: I received a request from one of my subscribers to add a Print Friendly button. So I did, because I thought it would be convenient for all of you. The Print Friendly button works, (I've tested it) but, I am NOT a geek, and all I could do was to copy the HTML code in my blogs at the spot where I was insctructed to place it. If for some reason, when you try to use the Print Friendly button, the pattern does not appear right on your screen, or if does not print right, I cannot troubleshoot that! That sort of thing has happened to me in other sites. I can suggest one thing though, which is what i do: Get out of the printing window, highlight everything you want to print on the blog's common screen with your mouse, hit Crl plus C, to copy, and drop the contents on any word processing software you have (Word for Windows or the free softwares Scribus or OpenOffice will do just fine) and then print it as you usually print things on your computer.
