Korean Circle Scarf!

Circle scarf seem to becoming the new trend lately and I have seen so many Korean actors wearing them. It's a super easy to make scarf and it keeps you toasty warm. It can also become a hood scarf if you increase the width of the scarf and make it a bit wider. So here is my version of the Korean circle scarf. Hope you like it and please support me by checking out the ads and subscribe for more free patterns. :)

With an N size hook (10mm) chain 190 chain with a chunky yarn or two strands of worsted weight yarn. Then use a slip knot to connect the chain and make sure it's not twisted. Half double crochet in the round until your desired width. Mine was6.5 inches but if you would like a bigger hood, I recommend going for 7 or 8 inches.

Inspirations from Korean Drama- Ep 1 Secret Garden

I'm such a big fan of korean drama and asian drama in general to the point I'm watching several dramas at the same time because the episodes are not out fast enough for me. This is most my most recent watched drama, Secret Garden. I already finished this once but decided to go back since I ran out of new drama episodes. I have to tell you korean drama always have the cutest knit wear in them if you pay attention. So here are just a few of them. I'm thinking of writing patterns for them soon so hopefully I'll be able to post them before it get cold outside.  (Sorry for the bad quality pictures. Better pictures will be coming up in the future posts.)

A Camera in a Camera

I was going to make a camera case with felt but since I'm still  in my crochet mood, I decided to crochet it instead. This is really not a pattern since it depends on different cameras, but this'll give you an idea of how to make one yourself. :)
Chain 35 or until it fits around your camera. 
Slip stitch the chain together and add a stitch marker to mark the beginning of the round
Keep sc (single crochet) until the length covers the camera

Sc back and forth as if you're crocheting a scarf to make the flap, make it as long as you like

Make some button holes (I made 2 )

Crochet a rectangle for the bottom

Use yarn needle and scrap yarn to sew the bottom and the top together

Add the buttons in the back

Crochet the center of the circle with brown color yarn and the outer with white,  button is optional

Attach it and add more details

Take 3 strands of yarn held together and make a loop

Attach it to the case and chain until desired length and this will be the strap

And TAH-DAHHH!! Your very own camera case. 

Hope you like it and get CRAFTY! :)
