Helmets & Hats - and Snuggly Scarves
All-Aglow in Cream
If you're looking for warmth, softness, and prettiness - here is something special.
Like all of my creations it is unique - a 'one-off' - never to be repeated exactly the same.
As the designer and creator, I can certainly guarantee these claims.
This aviator helmet and scarf were handknitted using Cream wool and 'Ostrich' yarn together in a rib pattern.
The helmet has long tails ending in crochet pompoms - to leave hanging - or tie for added warmth. And the scarf is 142cm (56") long x 11cm (4.5") wide.
You can see the silkiness and glow the Ostrich yarn adds to this quite beautiful creation.
(And I think my daughter looks pretty special, too - but I could be just a little prejudiced!)
...maybe a littleTurquoise and Purple, too?
This is a charming colour combination, flattering to any hair or complexion shade.
This is a scarf that could double as a belt to enhance jeans, skirts or straight dresses. It was created using a Dark Blue/Turquoise/Purple combination 'Feathers' yarn with diagonal stripes of Turquoise 'Ostrich' and plain yarn knitted together - 8cm (3") wide x 104cm (41") long. and only $20.00
Plus, it has a matching hat in vertical wedge stripes of Dark Blue/Turquoise/Purple 'Feathers' & Turquoise 'Ostrich' & plain yarn knitted together, with turn-back trim. Also $20.00.
I would sell the set for $35.00

Pretty in Purple and Pink
...don't you think?
These really are flattering colours.
The scarf and aviator helmet were knitted and crocheted - this time using -
Pink & Lavender 'Ostrich' type yarn and Pale Pink plain yarn with Lavender tassles each end of scarf. 162cm (64") long x 8cm (3") wide.
The aviator helmet, true to its namesake, can be worn undone, or tied according to preference - and need for extra warmth!
Likewise the scarf, which looks attractive just hanging down. It all depends on the outfit, the look you're seeking, and how chilly the wind feels around your neck.
The Code No. for this one is - 5e
Silver Threads amongst the Grey
...and a Burgundy 'flower'
I love making a scarf on the diagonal - such interesting stripes can be created.
This is another scarf that can equally be used as a belt to enhance jeans, skirts, straight dresses. It was created using Silver Grey 'Feathers' yarn with thin diagonal stripes of Burgundy 'Ostrich' yarn, and is 5cm (2") wide x 190cm (75") long. Just $20.00
Plus, matching hat in Silver Grey 'Feathers' yarn with Burgundy 'Ostrich' trim, and I had great fun creating the crocheted flower with its beaded centre, and rolled rim. I really like how it developed. A sort of 1920's 'Flapper' feel to the hat - don't you think?
The hat is also $20.00 - but I would sell the set for $35.00
Oranges and Lemons
This particular scarf & hat were crocheted using an Apricot/Orange 'sparkly' 'Ostrich-type', and plain Lemon yarn, with Lemon crocheted picot edge to hat.
The scarf is 190cm (75") long x 8cm (3")wide.
I haven't mentioned yet, that the other good news (for the conservation-minded), is that no living thing was harmed or killed in order to make these items!!
(I know my daughter thinks she looks funny in this set. But if you could see how much hair she has - you would understand.)
Great Stuff on Amazon
Autumn? or Rust?
...and Fawn and Rich Brown
Yet another scarf that can also be a belt to enhance jeans, skirt or straight dress...created using Rust 'Feathers' yarn with mottled Fawn/Brown 'Ostrich' vertical stripes, and is 9cm (3.5") wide x 170cm (67") total length, including 23cm (9") 'Ostrich' fringing. $20.00
Plus matching hat in Rust 'Feathers' yarn with Fawn/Brown 'Ostrich' trim and rolled rim. (also $20.00, or $35.00 the set)
The bad news is that this one has now been sold. The good news is that I could make something quite similar again, if someone wanted to order either hat or scarf - or a set.
Silver Threads among the Red
This scarf was crocheted in an amazing Red 'Velvet' yarn and Silver 'Moonlight' yarn with crocheted silver cord woven through scarf, and silver picot edges to both scarf and hat. The Scarf is 172cm (68") long x 9cm (3.5") wide.

This particular scarf (or belt to enhance jeans, skirts, straight dresses) was created using a lovely gently speckled soft Grey yarn with Deep Lilac 'Feathers' stripes, knitted in garter stitch, with Deep Lilac 'Feathers' fringing each end. It is 7cm (3") wide x 170cm (67") total length, and it's price is just $15.00
Plus, there is a matching hat in soft Grey yarn with diagonal pattern and rolled rim in Deep Lilac 'Feathers' yarn, also $15.00 - or $25.00 the set.
