This Mustard Button Cuff Bracelet is made to match with the Mustard Button Cuff Infinity Scarf! It’s a really simple pattern and super fast to make. Why not give it a try?
A few months ago while shopping at JoAnn’s, I came across a 50% off button sale and I couldn’t resist grabbing some wooden buttons. My favorite was the ‘coconut’ button, which I thought would look great on a scarf! With more snow coming, this weather isn’t getting warmer anytime soon…so I decided to make myself an infinity scarf and put the buttons to good use! So let’s get started on this Mustard Button Cuff Infinity Scarf!
It’s been a busy month and I haven’t been able to work on my crochet projects as much as I wanted to. That said, I did manage to finish up my Good Fortune Clementine Tree on time for Chinese New Year (CNY), which is on February 19, 2015. As I’ve said on my last post, clementines are symbols of abundance and good fortune in the traditional Chinese culture. The bright orange color of the clementine (or mandarin oranges) also symbolizes ‘gold’, hence the belief that the fruit will bring in wealth and good fortune. And so I thought it would be a great idea to crochet one! Or…it’s just my excuse to not go out and buy one in this freezing weather, especially with the crazy snowstorms we’ve been having!
Chinese New Year (CNY) is only a couple of weeks away and I can’t wait to celebrate it with my family! Much like Christmas or Thanksgiving, there’s always lots of yummy food during this holiday. But of course, the best part is the little red packets, which contains lucky money 🙂 And so, since I’ve already worked on a few projects for Valentine’s Day, how could I forget about CNY?
When I was young, my parents would always buy a few clementines (or mandarin oranges…or tangerines…? they’re pretty much the same thing, right? OK, let’s move on!) and display it on the dinner table as decoration. The clementines are traditional symbols of abundance and good fortune.
