Birthday Present


A coworker of mine mentioned wanting to learn how to crochet, so she could make a really long, warm scarf. I had offered to teach her how to crochet one day on our lunch break, but she’s taking four college classes right now and uses her lunch breaks to study, so she doesn't have time to learn how to crochet right now. Since she couldn’t make a scarf herself, I made her this one for her birthday next week.

It’s just long rows of single crochet. I used a bulky weight wool/acrylic blend, self- striping yarn, Reynolds Smile, with an “N” hook, and it worked up really quickly. I used less than two skeins for the scarf. If had realized I was going to have some yarn left over, I would have made the scarf longer. The Reynolds Smile usually sells for around $10 a skein, but I found it on clearance for $5 at Knit2Purl2.com. The owner is trying to sell her web business, so she has a lot of great designer type yarns on clearance. Check it out here.
