I made this last weekend while the rest of my family was watching Land of the Lost. (Terrible movie, but it did have one or two really funny parts.) I’m even old enough to remember watching the Saturday morning TV show. But I digress…
This is me trying to hide the fact that I don’t have any makeup on. Note to self: put on some makeup before you take pictures of yourself. :)
This easy scarf is really a just a long tube consisting of three rows of double crochet. I found the pattern here on Prudent Baby. Great blog, you should check it out. It’s full of cool stuff and fun ideas. It took an entire skein of Lion Wool-Ease Thick & Quick Yarn and a size N crochet hook. I took Prudent Baby’s advice and started by chaining 125 stitches.
But before I could continue, I had to figure out how to double crochet. Lion Brand Yarn has a great tutorial (video and written instructions) on just how to do the elusive DC. (That’s crochet-speak for double crochet.) I’m glad to say that it was really easy to make.
It’s really warm and easy to wear! I love it. Now my 11 year old daughter wants to learn how to crochet. I can picture us now, side by side on the couch, watching another horrible movie…
