The Aisling Scarf by The Cozy Chipmunk




Not too long ago I had the pleasure of testing for the amazing Laura from The Cozy Chipmunk. She is a sweet friend of mine and one of the very first designers I met in my maker journey. She designs more Amigurumi patterns but has recently ventured into making wearable items!

The pattern I tested was the Aisling Scarf. It was such a fun experience as it was my first time ever testing for a designer. Sure, I have made many things designed by others but never tested an unreleased pattern before. I hope to test for more designers including for Laura in the future as it was a pleasant and relaxing experience.



The Aisling Scarf is easily a weekend project. With its fun bead and cross stitches, you really can't get bored with this one. I used Lion Brand's Heartland for this project which made the gauge a little different from what was suggested. Being a scarf, I wasn't too concerned with that and was really pleased with the way it came out.

I was happy to do a little photoshoot for the Aisling Scarf. Enjoy the silly pictures of me and yes, I realize these pictures will last forever on the internet but we all gotta live a little, right? Haha..


Don't mind the tired look. The two weeks that this scarf was in testing, I was also scrubbing, cleaning and packing my house to prepare it for selling. What great timing we had (being sarcastic here)! For those who may end up reading this way in the future... we are currently enduring a pandemic and practicing social distancing which has put showing the house on the back burner. Meanwhile, almost all of my yarn is packed away in boxes and yarn that's been ordered is taking quite a bit of time to ship. Clearly, yarn should never be packed away. 🤣





I hope that you decide to put this one on your list of projects to do. Also, follow Laura on Instagram and get to know her. She is a wonderful person inside and out and you won't regret following and getting to know this amazing and gentle hearted spirit. 



Until next time, stay safe! Stay healthy!

Happy crocheting and knitting!



XO,

Laura
