I Made a Scarf!!!!

I have dreamed of Making and, more importantly, Finishing a crochet or knitted project for many years. I never really knew how to do it right and I would always get discouraged and put it away. With the help of a store called Knit n' Stitch and a book called "Happy Hooker", I learned how to crochet myself a lovely autumn red scarf.


This is my attempt at an Antropologie style photo shoot :)


This is a photo right before I finished. I cut off tassels or fringe for the bottom of my scarf and It was so fun and easy to attach them. I wrapped the yarn around a DVD to get the right length and cut one side. All the pieces were about the same size.

This scarf took two balls of 3.5 oz chunky yarn at 121 yards and a size "I" hook. I chose to do a stitch called Triple Crochet. I am so excited to make more, just ask my husband! With any free time I have a crochet project in my hand... during movies, in the car, at friend's houses, etc...

Wow Lindy!! That was fast! It's beautiful, the color and the style with fringe. When I was really into knitting a few years ago, I was knitting everywhere ALL THE TIME -and I learned that it is very, very important to remember to stretch the wrist in between sessions or it'll get sore; just some advice! What are you going to make next?
