Crocheted Scarf, every color possible.

I love all the colors in this ombre yarn. I think these colors work for adults or children, for males or females. Nothing fancy just good old double crochets using a H hook so there's very little space between. I like using smaller hooks to make items more solid and therefore warmer. This was a good take to work project. I could do a couple of rows here and there during lunch; and finished it up in the car while hubby and I ventured out of town recently in search of warmer weather. (some Hilton Head posts on my Travel blog). I like projects you don't have to worry much about counting or measuring when you're traveling. This nice warm scarf is large and will therefore be adult appropriate measuring 7 1/2 inches wide and 80 inches long. I like scarves large enough to be wrapped around twice for warmth, or used as a head and neck scarf at the same time (at least for women).

If memory serves me right this yarn ombre mix is very close to the colors I used way back in the day when I made my very first scarf. It was one of those little head scarves you tie under your chin. Anyone old enough to remember what I'm talking about? lol

  1. I love long scarves. Sometimes, I can't wrap the short ones around exactly the way I like them. I feel warmer with the long ones. This one is really nice!

Where are You and Your Yarn From?

I'm trying to identify where everyone is from, partially for fun. Take a look at the map. Also, believe it will aid me in cases where we have several people with the same name. Please look at the lists of bloggers and non bloggers and see if I have the state you hail from. If not, please leave a comment and let me know.

Additionally, we've had help from Scotland, England, Germany Puerto Rico, Canada, and France! They don't appear on the map, but their help is still greatly appreciated.

Where The People Who Donate Come From, is your state represented?
