BEAUTIFUL LOOPED WOOL/SILK YARN. . . I crocheted a lovely 10-inch wide shell patterned long scarf from LOUET Clyde, 6 skeins of color: Purple Rhapsody. Because it was hard to "see" the stitches of this looped boucle, I used an "O" hook, the largest I owned. EASY to work up, but I had to be careful so the loops didn't get caught on the larger hook. Recently I bought a deep orchid down vest and a bottle green wool/cashmere swing coat, so this scarf coordinates PERFECTLY with them. Compliments galore . . . as this scarf is so FANTASTIC, especially to keep my neck warm during the COLD Minneapolis winter temps! I purchased yarns on sale at Paradise Fibers website last fall. I recommend this yarn for "special" projects for a sophisticated LOOK!

I've been wearing the neck cowl crocheted (hook K) from 2 skeins of CLYDE, Setting Sun (04) in an open shell pattern repeated every 4 rows. The bright orange with shades of blues cowl looks GREAT on my deep orchid down vest and charcoal wool coat. I purchased 10 skeins in Oct. 2012 from on-line Paradise Fiber's sale, so I plan to crochet 3 more for gifts to sisters & friends. Again, a truly GORGEOUS boucle yarn!
