Crochet Victory

Finally, after failing to learn years ago (probably from lack of patience), relearning, and much practice - I have single crocheted a scarf!  Maybe not so impressive, but the rows are pretty even, no mysterious dropped stitches or tightened tension, and it is a decent length to be worn.  Version 1.0 with this yarn actually came out well too, but I'd made it too wide so there wasn't enough length.  Cue ripping out all the crochet and starting again.  No wasting yarn here.

The yarn is a Bernat cottontots yarn - which is 100% cotton - with the color name "sunshine" that I had bought many years ago intending to crochet a hat.  Not sure how I intended to do that with my then complete lack of crochet ability, but hope springs eternal.  So here, in all of its not-very-interesting glory is my first successful crochet scarf, folded for your convenience.
Final dimensions were 50 3/4" long and 3 3/4" - 4" wide.  I'm not sure what I will do with it.  Either donate it to the domestic violence shelter, or save it for the Etsy shop I hope to start as soon as I can think of a cool name.


  1. It's a pretty scarf, why not keep it?

  2. I have a ton of scarves already given to me as gifts by other people. I've been trying to cut down on the amount of unnecessary items I have to cut down on my own clutter and send them on to homes that will appreciate them.
