I wanted to post something more in line with the holiday spirit. What goes better with Christmas then Red & White & Peppermints? How about this Peppermint Purse & Scarf set!
Both are made using worsted weight yarn. You simply carry the unused yarn behind your stitches as you work them so dropping and picking up colors are a breeze. For those who aren't familiar with the process here is a tutorial I made awhile back that should help illustrate the idea better.
I used a combination of both the yarns to make the fringe on the scarf and this big, chunky tassel at the bottom of the purse. Feeling more in the holiday spirit yet?
