After being unable to find a scarf that fit my standards, I decided to make one. I loved that it was better than anything I could find. I loved that I made it. There is something so precious about things you make yourself. You’re the only person that has something exactly like it. It’s a piece of your heart and creativity.
Then one day I lost it. After driving to every local place I could think of where I might have left it (grocery stores, cafes, yoga studios), and asking if they had it in their lost and found, I had to admit my scarf was gone. I hope that a homeless person has it.
I could not part with my scarf though, so I decided I had to make it again.
I felt overjoyed when I found the exact yarn after going to a few stores. Walmart didn’t have it, but Michael’s did.
I love the nubbiness and jewel tones of the wool.
Two weeks later:
I totally love it. I’m so glad I “found” my scarf again.
Directions for crocheters: Chain 21.
Row 1: Single crochet in 2nd chain from hook. Double in next chain, single in next chain…across the row, double crochet in last chain, turn. (10 singles, 10 doubles. Helps to remember: odd numbers single, even numbers double).
All other rows: Chain 1, single crochet in first stitch, double in next, etc. Turn. Continue until you like the length of the scarf. Fasten off, knot, and weave in your end.
