I CAN’T STOP MAKING SCARVES!!!!

It’s totally an addiction at this point.

I made this one over the weekend.  I needed a quick gift for someone, and I thought with the lovely cold weather we have all been having, a scarf would work nicely.  I used the same pattern as THIS post— the Chunky Scarf using a Double Crochet, the only thing I did differently was to stop it at 40″.  I wanted this scarf to just go over your neck once, and to not loop around.

I found that this makes it a really nice length– not too short, where it looks awkward, but not so long that it gets to be too much.  To put it simply, it’s lovely.  And the best part?  It works up really quickly!!

I used two skeins of regular Red Heart yarn, in Cocoa.  It is a nice, chunky yarn, that may not be the softest, but it sure is warm!

Funny story,  I asked Nate to take some photos of me in the scarf, and let’s just say….the coloring was a liiittle bit off because of all of the snow.  So I made him put the scarf on so that I could try.  This is the face I got.

Ha!  Sorry babe, but I just had to share this gem.  Also, I’m pretty sure you were messing with me, because the color looks fine on this.

Anyway, thank you to my lovely little sister for being my impromptu model!  I stopped by her work on my lunch hour, met her outside, and snapped a few photos.  Then went home and packaged this up and shipped it off to it’s new owner!  Fun times!

Andddd I have had someone else place an order for one, so I just finished a hot pink one today. I almost wish it would stay cold for awhile longer **ducks**, so I can continue making scarves!  Yeah, I know, but seriously, nobody wants a scarf in 100 degree Kansas heat lol!

I will be posting this is my Etsy shop soon, if you’d like one visit HERE.
