    I don’t know about you but when the weather is hot, my hair is always up in a bun or ponytail. Who am I kidding? It’s an all-year-round thing for me. But during the summer/fall those little flyaways feel much more noticeable. Maybe it’s because in the winter I’m always wearing a beanie? I don’t know. But the reality is, a little bit of time outside or a car trip with the windows open and what may have started as a good hair day has turned into frizzy bad hair day. My solution: a crochet hair scarf. So I whipped myself up a crochet hair scarf and now I’m here to share with you my Berry Good Hair Day Crochet Hair Scarf Pattern. Now, all days can be a good hair day.

    When I picked the yarn for this project, I wanted it to do two things. One, be something that was light and flexible/drapey AND I wanted it to be a quick project for someone that might not have tried working with fingering weight yarn yet because they thought working with fingering yarn would take forever. I had some beautiful Hawthorne Fingering Handpaint Speckle yarn in Berry Cobbler in my stash and so I decide this yarn would be fantastic. It’s got great stitch definition, great drape, cost effective and you get get two crochet hair scarves from one hank. If you haven’t tried this yarn before, check out my Hawthorne Fingering Hand Paint Speckle Yarn review HERE.

    I hope I didn’t lose you at fingering weight yarn. Because, this realy is a quick project. I’ve included two different sizes – there’s a thin scarf that’s about 2.25″ wide and a wide scarf that’s about 4.25″ wide. I got both of these from a single hank of Hawthorne Fingering Weight yarn and still had some left over. I was able to make the thin scarf in about an hour and a half. And I am SLOOOOOOOOOWW crocheting and have kids interrupting me every two minutes asking if my project is for them or if they can have their 37th snack for the day. So if you’re a beginner or intimidated by working with fingering weight yarn, this is the perfect project for getting your feet wet and giving it a try. I put off working with fingering weight yarn forever thinking it would take me my whole life to make anything and I get bored if a project takes me too long. So I thought it wouldn’t be for me. Once I tried it, I was hooked! I am OB-SESSED now and although, worsted weight will always be my favourite, I’ve definitely been adding more fingering weight yarn to my stash because I just love working with it.

    Ways to Wear your Crochet Hair Scarf

    Crochet Hair scarf tied in a woman's hair

    I have never been the fashionista that can tell you a dozen different ways to tie a scarf and make you look sassy and fiece. No. I’m the girl that looks like she got into a fight with her scarf and lost. So, thanks to creativity and my friend Google, I have a couple of suggestions and some of them aren’t even for your hair. How’s that for versatility? Some ways you can wear/style your Berry Good Hair Day Crochet Hair Scarf:

    • Tie it at the back of your head
    • Tie it around your ponytail/messy bun. This can be done once, letting the tails dangle or wrapped around multiple times.
    • Wrap it around the handle of your purse. It looks fun/stylish and you’ll have it with you in case you need it
    • It can be used as a short scarf and tied around your neck
    • Tied on top of your head in a knot with the ends tucked in

    How will you wear yours? Let me know in the comments below so everyone can share different ways to style their crochet hair scarves.

    Hawthorne Fingering Yarn Review: Hand-Paint Speckle

    Two hanks of We Crochet Hawthorne Fingering Weight Yarn with a Furls Crochet hook with a text overlay indicating this is a Hawthorne Fingering Yarn Review.
    This post may contain affiliate links.

    I was recently sent some Hawthorne Fingering Hand-Paint Speckle yarn’s newest colourways from We Crochet (crochet.com) to try out and I decided to share with you my experience working with it in this Hawthorne Fingering Hand-Paint Speckle Yarn Review

    This yarn was provided to me free of charge but all opinions are my own.

    Hawthorne Fingering Hand-Paint Speckle Yarn is, like the name suggests a fingering weight, size 1 yarn. Hawthorne Fingering Hand-Paint Speckle yarn is a 80% Fine Superwash HighlandWool, 20% Polyamide (Nylon) blend. It currently comes in a 100g hank which contains 357 yards of yarn. It’s machine washable and dryable, which is a feature that I always appreciate in a yarn!

    Keep in mind that when ordering that because the speckles are hand-painted, the colours may vary from skein to skein. So, as with hand-dyed/indie dyed yarn, if you get two skeins that have noticeable colour differences, alternate using the skeins every row or every few rows so your project looks more cohesive.

    The recommended hook sizes for this yarn is 2.25mm – 3.5mm (2.25mm – 3.25mm needle for all you knitters out there). You can definitely get away with a bigger hook with this yarn. I am currently working with it using a 4.5mm hook and love the look of it. It has great stitch definition. The crochet gauge information on the label (using the recommended hook sizes) is as follows:

    • Crochet Gauge: 21 – 32 SCs = 4″

    Hawthorne Fingering Hand-Paint Speckle Yarn Colours

    I was sent two colours to try, Panel Tone and Cobbler Speckle. The Panel Tone and Cobbler Speckle are two of the latest colourways and they are absolutely beautiful. In the past, I’ve had a love/hate relationship with variegated or speckled yarns. I love the way it looks in the hank or skein but then I can never find a project that works with the yarn in a way that appeals to me. I’ve bought many pretty multi-coloured yarns with good intentions, only to get frustrated and abandon the project or gift the yarn to someone else. But this yarn has definitely made me reconsider. Working up the swatches, the neutral/subtle base colour really helps highlight the speckles and they look so pretty, even in the small swatches that I did. I even decided to start a design with one and I haven’t been able to put it down. Currently on the We Crochet website, there are 15 different colourways available in this yarn.

    Of the two colourways I was sent, the Cobbler Speckle is my favourite. I want to keep calling it berry cobbler because that’s what it reminds me of. It makes me think of spring time and fresh berries and the first warm breeze of the spring season. Yes, a yarn made me feel all that and I loved it, ok?! Honestly, it’s absolutely beautiful and I can’t wait to see the finished project in all it’s berry speckled glory.

    Hawthorne Fingering Yarn Review: What Does it Feel Like?

    Let’s chat about how this yarn feels. I hear from a lot of people that they are hesitant to order yarn online because they want to be able to touch the yarn. I get it. I’m a serial yarn squisher and have definitely put off some online orders just because I wasn’t sure if I would like how it felt.

    I was honestly surprised by how soft this yarn felt. I’ve worked with some highland wool blends before that were quite scratchy so I was surprised to find that this yarn was soft. I definitley will wear this in a project next to bare skin and do not anticipate my sensitive skin to be irriated by it. This yarn has been really enjoyable to work with. I’m working on a design with it currently and haven’t had any issues with it feeling scratchy, irritating my skin or being unpleasant. In fact, I can’t wait to use it!
