Crocheted Scarf

Posted in Gallery at 8:52 pm by Melanie

Well, for a while now I’ve said I want to learn how to crochet.  I really like those japanese crocheted animals, so I figured a scarf was a good way to learn the ropes of crocheting.  I really enjoyed myself.

I finished crocheting it over a week ago, but didn’t add the fringe (which you can’t see) until yesterrday.  It’s long and can be wrapped around my neck several times if needed.  I LOVE it!

specs:

What: Crocheted striped scarf.
Pattern: Nothing published.  I just did two rows of double crochet and then switched colors.
Started: Sometime Early December
Completed:Friday, December 29, 2006
Yarn: Lion Brand Wool, less than one skein of blue and a little more than one skein brown.
Needles: size “H” hook
Lesson: CROCHETING!
Modifications: None.
Crocheting Time: I didn’t actually time this project, but it took me 42 minutes per row, so that equals approximately 7 hours, plus about 30 minutes for fringe, for a total of 7.5 hours.

    I just love this scarf. It’s adorable!

    I wish I could crochet without it killing my wrist. Sometimes it’s just faster than knitting.
