There are few people who know me who wouldn't agree that when I enjoy doing something I am almost obsessive about it. And as my immense yarn stash can attest to crochet is no exception. I taught myself from a kids book.
Now the particular scarf in question came onto my project list just before Christmas, I was making up these adorable Ruffle scarves for a few friends and another friend asked me to make him a scarf. As it happens, I have no real idea what it is that guys like when it comes to crochet scarves so I said yeah, okay pick some yarn and I will make you one.
It didn't come up again and it half floated in the back of my mind for a while as I went about other things and as I, like most other craft addicts, collected patterns for things to "one day" make. I looked for a scarf. Then I found I found it, and not just any scarf, the perfect scarf. One that would be symbolic of our friendship.
So far it is a work in progress. Knit it is said to be an 80 hour project. I am doing it in single crochet, on a 3.75mm hook. It is approximately 12 inches wide.
