A Spike for Phinneas

A Spike for Phinneas from CrochetBot 3000

This is my baby, the youngest of my 4 kids, and he is turning 4 today.  As I have mentioned before, I like to let my kids (or any kids I am crafting for) have a hand in the design process.  Sometimes the kid in question has very detailed and specific demands and, sometimes, they just pick the color.  Phinneas went yarn shopping with me, picked out a skein of orange and a skein of gray, and then announced he needed a scarf for his birthday.  He was so excited that I didn’t have the heart to tell him that he would most likely have to put it away until next year.  Our winter seems to have passed.

As always, this pattern has not been tested so if you notice any problems with it please let me know either in the comments section or at CrochetBot3000@gmail.com. You can also find me on Facebook at http://www.facebook.com/Crochetbot3000.

  2. Thanks for this — I was looking for a pattern on which to base a voyageur sash for my five year old grandson for a costume. The sashes were traditionally fingerwoven but I’m just going to crochet him one. Your pattern with two or three accent colors will be perfect :)
