Crochet Project – Quick & Easy Scarf
Crochet … it’s not just for old ladies anymore! I admit, I used to see my grandmother, my mom and my aunts crocheting, and I would think to myself that this is an old lady craft. But I’ve come to realize that crochet is fun and artistic, and it has become an avenue for me to express my creativity, personalize gift giving and relax.
Warm and Cozy
One of my favorite patterns is the Fantastic Fall Scarf from Rescued Paw Designs. Krista has created a beautiful design that works up fast. And unlike some patterns, it doesn’t feel tedious while you’re working. The soft Charisma yarn feels wonderfully warm and cozy, and the scarf’s simplicity makes it perfect for everyday. Of course you could use whatever yarn floats your boat, but I found this one to be just right.
I ended up adding some fringe on the ends of some of the scarves I made from this pattern, just to add a little interest. I love it both ways, though, and it’s versatile enough that it looks great either way.
If you read this blog, you’ll know that the Favorite Things Party I have with my friends is an amazing good time. This year, I was so happy to give these scarves as my favorite things. The ladies who received them were thrilled, and even though it’s already warm enough to wear shorts here, they didn’t take them off for the rest of the evening. Don’t they look great in them?
If you crochet, this pattern is a must. For a beautiful, soft, warm and versatile scarf, this one can’t be beat!
