Solomon’s Knot Scarf Necklace

I received this Stargazer Silk and Sequins yarn in one of my first yarn subscription boxes. I started the pattern shortly after, but other projects took over and this one sat unfinished for a very long time.

Until now.

The Solomon’s Knot, or Love Knot, Scarf Necklace is a cute and super fast project. The video tutorial shows you how to work the simple Solomon Knot if you’ve never tried it before.

Vintage Awesomeness 80’s Edition

I would've been so jealous of the bangs.
I would’ve been so jealous of the bangs.

I love old crochet patterns. Not necessarily for the pattern itself, but more for the look back at the era the photo for the pattern was taken in.

This “awesome” photo is from an 80’s edition of Crochet Fantasy.

Being a kid of the 80s I can’t help but relive the days with this photo. The sponged graphic lines of the artwork in the thin gold frame behind the model. Her hand on the black lacquered furniture that was probably purchased at Levitz (bonus points for leaving their slogan in the comments.) The bold earrings and the hair that is most likely in a banana clip. The best part of all is of course the quintessential 80’s feathered bangs.

I had puny bangs and could never get the heights achieved here, so I’m very jealous. I just love this picture. Did I miss anything that stands out to you in the picture of being “totally” 80s. Let me know below, or share your own favorite 80’s trend.
