Notes
The "reflection" part of the Urban Reflection Wrap is created by a stripe pattern that is made up of Fibonacci numbers that fade into each other from opposite ends. You need to keep track of your row counts as you work the pattern so that you know when to change colors.


Herrhdc: Yarn over, insert hook in st indicated, pull up a loop and draw it through the first loop on hook, yarn over and pull through two remaining loops on hook.

The first color section is a lot of rows so you'll be able to spend that time becoming familiar with the pattern.

The pattern is a simple two row repeat, once you get started use the instructions for these two rows and the table that shows you how many rows to work in each color to complete the Urban Reflection Wrap.


Be careful and check your stitch counts at the end of each row. Working with fingering weight yarn and small stitches can make it easy to miss a ch sp or a stitch. 

Instructions
Ch 68

Row 1: Tc in 6th ch from hook (skipped chs count as one tc and one skipped ch), tc in next ch and in each ch across to last ch, 2 tc in last ch, ch 3, turn. (65 tc)

Row 2: (Beg ch 3 counts as herrhdc and ch 1 sp) *Herrhdc in next st, ch 1, sk 1 st,* work * to * across, work last herrhdc in last tc leaving chs unworked, ch 4 turn. (33 herrhdc)

Row 3: (Beg ch 4 counts as tc) Sk next ch 1 sp, tc in next st and in each ch 1 sp and st to last st, 2 tc in last st, ch 3, turn. (65 tc)

Repeat rows 2 and 3 changing colors as stated by this chart:

21 rows: Color A
1 row: Color B
21 rows: A
2 rows: B
13 rows: A
3 rows: B
8 rows: A
5 rows: B

These are the color changes for the first half of the Urban Reflection Wrap. Next week in week 3 we will work the other half of the wrap.

Please join us in the Official String With Style Facebook Group to join me and others that are working on the Urban Reflection Wrap.

Owl Dish Scrubbie

Here is the window dressing promised in the Scrubbie Teaser Post from a couple weeks ago! How freaking adorable are these little owls???? I was so excited when my friend came to me with this idea! I approached Lorene from Cre8tion Crochet and asked her what she thought about me linking to her post and I was soooo glad that she was ok with it! Look how cute these are!!!!! 
Alright, so step one is going to be to complete the scrubbie from the previous post, found HERE. Once you have completed that you can follow along with the rest of the pattern here:
Materials  Cotton yarn in as many colors as you like. (You will want to use cotton so that it absorbs water and is more durable for repeated washings. I (5.5 mm) Hook Yarn needle Extra strips of nylon net material from previous step. You are going to stuff the owl with it.
Notes You can put a scrubbie in front, or in back or in both places. However you think it will work best! I have completed one owl with the scrubbie in the front (the orange an…

Chevron Love Afghan

Let's get ready to CHEVROOOON!!!
Woohoo!!! This pattern has been tested and is now ready for you to all enjoy! It's actually pretty simple. I think you all will be pleasantly impressed. I had so much fun making this afghan. I haven't made one in about 5 yrs. I got into a slump and between this chevron afghan and another that has me busy currently, I have come back into the world of afghans! I LOVE making them again! : D HOORAY! Also, for me, it was so fun and refreshing to be making this in boy colors. I have two girls so it isn't often that I get to play around with blues and greens and it was so so much fun!

If you are a member of pretty much any crochet group on social media I'm betting by now you have heard of or seen the new planned pooling argyle craze. To catch you up in case you have no idea what I am talking about: color pooling with yarn is what happens when you work with a variegated yarn and the colors either seem to group together or form distinguishable patterns within your finished item. I'm sure you've made a hat or and somehow the green in the variegated yarn always seems line up or something similar. Planned pooling is basically planning ahead of time to make your variegated yarn come together in a way that creates a …
